Home Care Resource Available for Dallas/Ft. Worth Area Seniors and their families
The need for educated professionals able to cater to the unique health, social and financial needs of seniors grows as the Baby Boomers reach retirement age, and improvements in healthcare allow people to live longer. Certified Senior Advisors have received a unique education and training that compliments their professional skills to better serve the growing senior demographic.
Seniors in the DFW area now have a resource to assist them in the aging process. Carolyn Legg, CSA, with Caregivers Connection 4U, LLC completed a comprehensive course through the Society of Certified Senior Advisors ® (SCSA) and has earned the certification of Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) ® . The CSA designation, in conjunction with 10 years of professional experience in home care and several years previously through a ministry, provides seniors and their families with a resource they can rely on to help with their home care needs.
"Being a CSA has proven to be a valuable asset when helping someone in a crisis. As a CSA, I have an understanding of issues that seniors and their families may face. Having a relationship with other professionals that I trust, has been invaluable. If I cannot answer a question, I am able to suggest resources to those families needing guidance", according to Carolyn Legg, CSA. One area many families face in a crisis is finding a place for mom or dad. If you start with us, we can help the family at no charge. A place for mom or dad is critical in having the best quality of life in his or her later years.
There is an explosive growth in the senior population. People are living longer, which means the need for skilled professionals able to serve the senior population is also growing. This demographic shift requires an educated response in how professionals work with seniors and a greater ability to address the challenges and opportunities seniors face.
