What is Aging Tree?
The Aging Tree is an all-encompassing resource for the transition into senior life. Whether you are giving some forethought to your journey into aging, or you want to get educated and find some help for mom, dad, grandma or grandpa, Aging Tree will provide informative and educational guidance—with various options for the most qualified Florida elder services along the way.
How It All Began:
The concept of Aging Tree was developed by Corey Shenk and the team at Vienna Medical Supply after decades of going into Florida homes to help people with medical supplies and equipment: "We noticed that people would come to us asking for referrals or advice about all sorts of home-related or geriatric services—everything from household help to assisted living communities. It’s like we became the reliable link to what they were looking for. We decided there was a definite need for a sort of liaison, so we created Aging Tree."
Vienna Medical specializes in medical equipment, oxygen and sleep therapy products commonly associated with Medicare and other private insurances. Shenk noted that people often are not savvy about their insurance, Medicaid, filing and other related matters, and Vienna’s hands-on help with this leg of medical supply service set their company apart. Overall, this unique and comprehensive approach to serving this specific niche led Shenk and his staff to the conception of Aging Tree.
How Aging Tree Can Help:
Think of Aging Tree as a free roadmap to eldercare and its many facets. Our aim is to educate first, and provide quality Florida senior care options for your consideration second. The information we offer (both on our website and on location at the Aging Tree office) will cover everything from Florida nursing homes and assisted living facilities, to Florida Elder Law, estate sales, medical equipment, senior financial advocacy, and more.
Shenk says that the preponderance of retirees in the Sunshine State creates a sense of isolation for many older people. "Often their families are far away; and as they see their independence diminishing, they may realize they need help in many areas. What they’re lacking is someone to help sort out what’s available to them, what they need and where to get it," he continues. "Often it’s the family who needs that same assistance, since they’re concerned but too far away to be proactive in arranging services." Aging Tree exists to bridge the gap between seniors, families and eldercare resources.
Since the seed of Aging Tree has only recently been planted, and the goal of the organization is to continue to grow and develop with the Florida senior care market (even as Aging Tree is well into its maturity), do yourself the service of keeping up with constant developments in elder care information and resources by checking into the Aging Tree website or office on a regular basis.
