Our care managers are available 24/7 to provide a non-medical care plan free when completing an assessment. Hiring Heritage Senior Care eliminates a lot of problems such as accounting, communication, financial, and tax issues because all employment obligations are the responsibility of Heritage Senior Care who employs the caregiver, not the family or client.

As the Director of Senior Services for Heritage Senior Care for over 10 years, I have established relationships in the community which enable me to coordinate FREE 1/2 day educational seminars for older adults addressing topics such as: fall prevention, driving forum, brain health, health fairs, dementia, end of life, disaster preparedness and much more.
Assisting families in problem solving and referring to the professionals in the community who can help improve their quality of life is a rewarding part of my interaction with the community. As well as chairing and belonging to many task forces, coalitions, board member and networking groups which provide services for the aging population. I speak in the community on many specific elder topics and provide education for the employees of corporations which are facing caregiving challenges.
