A Word From Anthony Cirillo

I did literally fall into senior care through a talent for singing. And I still sing for residents in long-term care to this day. The impact that seniors have had on me has been tremendous and the fulfillment I receive is wonderful.

Because of my love for seniors, I have focused my efforts in assuring that they are respected and receive the care they deserve. Of course that has immersed me deeply in the aging services industry.

We are facing a perfect storm - aging baby boomers in need of care and a healthcare system taxed to provide that care. I feel that if people were educated about aging issues sooner in life, they would make smart decisions and exercise self-responsibility for their health. Those that work in aging services have an obligation to assist people in becoming educated so that health and long-term care are not always entered in a crisis mode.
