Her research has surpassed 5000 hours. She assists seniors and family members who are caring for an elderly or cognitively impaired loved one by helping them navigate complicated decisions involving long term placement, clinical care, insurance, non-medical home care, long term planning, and not to mention – unforseen events. As the bridge between formal and informal networks, she develops an integrated service plan that respects, to the greatest degree possible, the abilities and preferences of the senior and his or her family.
Andrea is also a Certified Guardian, and has taught tap, ballet, and jazz dance to cognitively impaired seniors on a voluntary basis.
