ADVANCED SENIOR SOLUTIONS, INC
Aging Life Care Management for Seniors and Disabled Adults
Serving Pinellas, Pasco and Hillsborough Counties in Florida. Family and Veteran owned. Licensed, Bonded and Insured
Hello and welcome. As founder and owner of Advanced Senior Solutions, I started my Aging Life Care agency over 20 years ago after working in medical social services and mental health case management. I noticed many local and distant families struggling with managing their loved ones care after the passing of the primary caregiver or after a hospitalization or rehab stay. They are desperately seeking advice and guidance regarding care options. As a USAF veteran while stationed oversees, I found myself in a similar situation with my own disabled mother. My team of Life Care Managers all have Masters level degrees and/or Nursing Licenses. Take a moment to explore our individualized services listed below which are offered at various levels of fees to be affordable. Also, check out our Blogs for helpful articles. I always offer a free initial consultation with no obligation. Thank you for visiting our site and I would welcome being of service to you.
