What is a Certified Senior Advisor?
Certified Senior Advisors are aging industry professionals who have demonstrated knowledge of the health, social, financial, and ethical issues associated with aging. Obtaining the CSA certification, shows a commitment to high ethical standards, lifelong learning, and exceptional service to older adults.
A Certified Senior Advisor (CSA ®) is a specialist in aging and is committed to ethical behavior and knowledge required to benefit senior clients and their families. Becoming a CSA gives professionals who work with seniors an increased understanding and appreciation of the challenges that the majority of seniors in the United States face. By applying senior-specific knowledge to their own professional skills, CSAs can be of greater service and help to seniors by: Communicating better with seniors; Relating to seniors from a foundation of heightened awareness of seniors’ values, needs and specific issues; Demonstrating their understanding of the special ethical standards of working with seniors; and Guiding seniors to qualified resources when seniors’ needs are outside their area of functional expertise
Certified Senior Advisor Designation

knowledge and expertise they can identify the best siolutions for senior’s needs. Those who have the CSA designation demonstrate comprehensive experience in a wide range of issues that plague seniors such as their
health, social issues, financial concerns, and legal considerations.
Certified Senior Advisors Specialize in the Following Areas…

The business ethics I practice are driven by my passion to offer services and information that supports the advancement of positive aging and positive aging experiences. My efforts to help create positive mindsets about aging are directly tied to what I perceive to be the overarching purpose of a CSA, and that is to offer the most honest and transparent advice and services I can. I do this through a clear understanding of the rules that guide CSAs and an understanding of my responsibilities to uphold them. I offer education and resources that help aging adults determine their path and help their decision-making more be informed, self-driven and ethical—which is, after all, the goal of a CSA.

Caregiving Requires a Community!
I’ve been a caregiver 5 times since age 30 and I’m now 68. I’ve cared for my Mom, brother, husband, friend and stranger, all who’ve now passed. And I’ve consulted on caregiving several times.
Caregiving can be a very lonely profession because it’s wrapped in client protections, personal pride, and mutual respect. Also, thoughts, trends, and touch points have changed in Caregiving. Number One issue remains communication between all parties.
Caregiver’s Forum Board
Here’s what I’ve learned: Caregivers need an outlet, a sounding board, and community support. And they can all of these at the Caregiver’s Forum Board, once a month, right here.
Stay tuned for my LIVE and Zoom forums to discuss Caregiving today and be a part of my Caregiving board of experts. Bring your ideas, challenges, solutions and important information to the board for community input and support.
