Stacey Fischer became passionate about care for the elderly over 20 years ago when her own grandmother,who suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease needed Senior Living. She was active in searching and visiting centers and homes that would best cater to her needs. She was present in watching and caring for her as she went from Independent Living to end of life in an assisted living home here in the valley.
Over 6 years ago she began working with a healthcare company that specialized in hospice. She facilitated all admissions to the hospice service and was the key coordinator with the physician, family, hospice and often the assisted living home. Through this role and experience, she found her passion was ignited when she was involved in these processes with the families. She loved to take the time needed and really getting to really know them and their individual needs in order to achieve the best outcome for the family and the loved one. She got involved in the community she served and began volunteering in various organizations throughout the valley. She became a hospice volunteer, delivered meals on wheels, wrapped and delivered presents to low income seniors, sat on committees that raise money for homeless veterans. That hospice job led to another career that enabled Stacey to see more of the Senior Living Industry and the affiliated resources available to families by marketing and promoting a Senior Housing Guide. This opportunity expanded her experience and understanding of the Senior Living Industry as a whole. Joining the Options for Senior Living team in 2015, she now gets to blend the best of both worlds as she spends hours each week with families in the process of researching and selecting the senior living environment that best fits the needs of the senior, while also engaging in the awareness and development of the Options for Senior Living business. She became an active member of PASRS (The Professional Association of Senior Referral Specialists) and HSP (Human Services Professionals) where she currently sits as their President. She understands that our industry needs compassionate willing people to lead and influence the future for our community and she has been willing to involve herself in those efforts.
