A few weeks ago I was honored to be a speaker at the national conference for Certified Senior Advisors (CSA) that was held in Denver, Colorado. I spoke on the topic of Long-Term Care Planning to a packed house that was very interactive and had a lot of questions. It was an absolute pleasure.


If you don’t know CSA’s work, you should become familiar with the help they can provide for you and your family, as you navigate the issues presented by aging family members. This association of Certified Senior Advisors are well qualified professionals who meet the needs of our senior population and their families. When I was in Denver, I met owners of in-home care agencies, patient advocates, care navigators, senior movers, companies that remodel homes to equip residents with grab bars, wider doors, ramps, etc.


In order to become a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA), one must pass a rigorous exam, uphold the highest ethical standards and complete re-certification continuing education requirements. So, when you are looking for an individual or company to help you with certain aspects of the aging process, you may want to look to see if they have their CSA certificate.


Here is a link to the CSA website as well as the link to the speech I delivered at the national CSA conference.


Of course, if you have any questions about navigating any aspect of long-term care planning, Veterans’ benefits, Medicaid benefits or need advice in taking care of a senior loved one, please call Dillman & Associates and our team of professionals can point you in the right direction.
