New Resource Available for Palm Beach Area Seniors in the Senior Placement Industry
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.
Palm Beach County and Northern Broward County area seniors now have a new resource to assist them in the aging process. Jodi Glacer, CSA, with Senior Care Authority, recently 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 almost 2 years of experience in Full-Service Placement and Eldercare Services means that seniors and their families now have a resource they can rely on to help them find the best long-term-care for their loved ones.
“The information I learned to become a CSA allows me to understand my clients’ needs from ALL aspects so I can recognize and address concerns beyond finding a place to live”, according to Jodi Glacer, CSA.
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. ” I’ve taken the time to meet and get to know other professionals serving our senior population in South Florida; when I recognize other issues that my clients have, I can recommend qualified people who can solve those needs”.
As a Certified Senior Advisor, Jodi has received the education and training to better serve senior clients. Glacer is required to participate in continuing education to ensure she is well educated on the changes and updates that affect the Senior Placement industry.
