To change the conversation and culture when it comes to Aging in Place.
To educate family and professional caregivers to Engage with purpose and create meaningful moments throughout the aging process.
Aging Advocates was created to promote a platform to better educate families and professional caregivers in the aging process. Our vision was fostered from our expertise in caring for Alzheimer’s and other related Dementia patients. Our mission is to train “the caregiver” on how to engage each day with purpose and create meaningful moments. In turn, families and professional caregivers can navigate the aging process to maintain the greatest level of independence, autonomy, and well-being.
