Aging Life Care Management Advocacy for Seniors and Disabled Adults
Family and Veteran owned. Offering Veteran Discounts. Licensed, Bonded and Insured. Serving Pinellas, S. Pasco, W. Hillsborough
Hello and welcome. I started Advanced Senior Solutions, an Aging Life Care Management agency, over 20 years ago after working for many years in medical social services and mental health case management. During my work experience, I noticed local and distant family members struggling to manage their loved ones care. They were desperate for expert advice and accurate guidance regarding care options and resources. As a USAF veteran while overseas, I found myself in a similar situation with my own disabled mother. I have in place a fantastic team of Life Care Managers who have Masters level degrees and Nurses who specialize in complex medical case management. Take a moment to explore our individualized services listed below which are offered at various fees to be more affordable. I offer a Free initial consultation and a Veterans Discount! Thank you for visiting our site and I would be honored to be of service to you.
Sincerely, Lory Smeltzer, BA, MPH, CMC
