Elder Guru is owned and operated by a social worker who appreciates working with elders. He founded the site in 2009 as a means to make aging-related information available to professionals working in the field (social workers, long-term care administrators, case workers, etc.). Since that time, the focus has shifted some toward also helping non-professionals, from people wondering about their Medicare benefits to caregivers seeking information for their loved one.
He has years’ worth of professional experience working in aging services. He began that work as a social worker in a nursing home. He then worked as a program manager at an area agency on aging, then as the director of an adult day care facility.
