Laura Cassell Senior Care Specialist/Florida
Laura Cassell has been working in the Aging Services industry for almost 7 years. She credits her time spent with her grandma for her love of working with seniors. Laura truly has a unique passion for helping families understand their options for their loved ones and this passion drives her to be the best at what she does. Laura states, “I knew from a young age that I loved being around senior adults, I just didn’t realize until recently that it could become a career for me. Knowing that I get to help families and their loved ones find a suitable home that meets their financial goals as well as their care needs is extremely rewarding and meaningful to me. I am blessed to get to know the clients I work for and grateful that they allow me into their lives during such a critical time.” Laura is currently completing her Master’s Degree in Gerontology at the University of South Florida and is excited about the knowledge she is gaining and how that will benefit her clients and enhance her role as senior care specialist for Senior Care Authority/Florida Panhandle.
SENIOR CARE AUTHORITY COMPANY HISTORY
Senior Care Authority was founded in 2009 by Frank and Michele Samson of Sonoma, California. They opened a local placement agency and learned everything there was to know about finding the right care situation for an older adult needing help with activities of daily living. They came to the Senior Care space with successful business development skills in their past as well as personal family experience finding care solutions. The business took off, primarily due to their diligence, compassion, and commitment to helping families.
In 2014, the model was franchised and Senior Care Authority is now a national company with offices throughout the US and Canada. As part of their expansion, they partnered with an eldercare consulting practice who brought another set of senior care services and skills to the company, a great differentiator for Senior Care Authority.
