Certified Senior Advisor

When younger generations are faced with the responsibilities of caring for their elderly family members, issues may arise from lack of knowledge and/or lack of preparation. This is by no means the fault of anyone involved. Though many family members or friends begin with the intentions of helping their senior family member, the reality and weight of the responsibilities soon set in. This is why there are programs which assist in the caring and education of seniors.

Among those programs are the Society of Certified Senior Advisors (SCSA) and the Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) program.

The Society of Certified Senior Advisors (SCSA) provides its experts with on hands training in the field of senior care, along with also educating them in ways of gaining a better understanding of not only their services they are providing, but also the individual, client specific needs they will encounter. They are instilled not only a technical level of training in order to ensure the health and safety of their clients, but also a deeper, more spiritual ability to connect with those they are servicing. This establishes an understanding between advisor and senior.

Through the SCSA comes the Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) program.

The CSA program enables its participants to gain knowledge and abilities which allow them to serve seniors with the upmost professionalism and care. A CSA is able to assist individuals in caring for seniors by advising them in an assortment of issues. By combining experts from professions as varied as doctors, to accountants, to psychologists, the CSA program is able to provide assistance in almost every class imaginable.

When locating a CSA, all individuals can expect to find answers to their own unique situations. Because a CSA is trained in personal connections, they are able to better communicate with not only the senior, but also their family members. They are able to provide information, answers, and helpful solace with matters effecting seniors. Select CSAs are even trained in mediation in order to better handle a gathering of family members. These gatherings may be initiated because of problems which may arise in the home, concerns had by family members concerning their senior, or matters they may simply feel are out of their capacity.

With shared passions and educations, CSAs have made it their life’s mission to not only help with seniors and their families and friends, but also connect with them on a deeper level in order to provide, along with technical support, emotional support. It is through this deeper connection that CSAs are capable of providing an additional support system for not only seniors, but all individuals involved.

The senior population grows by approximately 50% with each passing year. With this increase comes an increase in the demand of assistance provided to the elderly. As stated before, while so many family members, friends, and close acquaintances make a valiant attempt at providing the help and assistance their elders are in need of, CSAs are aware of the intense training, patience, and understanding that comes with caring for and handling seniors.
