I was a caregiver for my mom for many years. Like many adult children, I watched a very independent woman lose her control in many ways. My role then was to help her put those pieces back in place, and to help her live out her life on her terms. Now, at InnovAge, I get to do that for thousands of seniors around the country. I couldn’t be more proud of the work we are doing every single day.
I am fortunate in that my parents were able to age in their home and manage their own healthcare, but this isn’t the norm. Caring for an elder is difficult, complex and time-consuming. The value that InnovAge provides is immediately understandable, and I am proud to be part of the effort to help seniors age in place.
I had the privilege of caring for my mom for 17 years as she was determined to age in her home, on her terms. This experience helps me understand and enjoy the fulfillment seniors and caregivers receive from the LIFE Program. I’m so proud to serve and help people to live as independently as possible.
I am privileged to work with the passionate and committed employees at InnovAge. I am personally fulfilled through the opportunity to make a difference and to know that programs like InnovAge are available for my loved ones and me when the circumstances of aging present challenges to our health.
It is incredibly gratifying to do work that supports a population that is often overlooked, yet deserves to be heard. I am very proud and humbled to be able to learn and share with the greater community the unique and rich life experiences of the people we serve.
Eleanor Roosevelt so eloquently said “beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.” I am blessed that my mother, a proper Southern lady and true “work of art,” was able to live independently until her 85th birthday. She is now in an assisted living facility progressing through the late stages of dementia. I am so grateful to be part of the InnovAge organization.
Growing up in a small town, I was fortunate to be very near to my grandparents. My grandmother lived with our family, so I frequently spent quality time with her and her friends. Through the years, I developed a real fondness of the elderly and an appreciation for the challenges of aging. I am so proud of the extraordinary care and support we provide our participants.
Our seniors deserve the best possible care so that they can be independent and live life on their own terms. I am passionate about PACE and want to ensure that InnovAge provides responsible patient care and clinical excellence for all participants.
I love the PACE model because it reminds me of community oriented primary care – care centered around individuals where they live.
My grandparents moved into my family’s home when they could no longer care for themselves. At a young age, I gained a real appreciation for their desire to stay with family and maintain their independence. I consider it a privilege to work for a company dedicated to keeping seniors healthy, independent, and in their homes with their loved ones.
I grew up spending a lot of time with my grandparents. I was blessed to have that time. Through the years, I experienced firsthand their journey with aging, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes. For me, there is a strong purpose in helping our loved ones age with dignity.
For me, working in healthcare is part of my DNA, going back to my candy striper days volunteering at Fitzsimons Army Hospital many years ago. Making a difference in people’s lives, however small, gives me joy!
I have spent my state government career developing innovative programs to keep seniors at home and living independently for as long as possible, including starting the PACE programs in Virginia. I joined InnovAge because I am energized and excited to work with everyone here to bring this successful PACE model to many more seniors across the country.
I love what InnovAge is able to do to maintain and stablize families. Caregivers are pulled in so many directions; it's fulfilling to be able to help take care of their older loved ones so they can return to their primary role as son or daughter.
