Our Invited Speaker:

Shauna Klein, Community Relations Advisor

A Place For Mom, Inc.

Hats Off To Mom And Dad!

Shauna Klein's passion for serving others started with a career in marketing and business development. In 2008, Shauna began her career in the senior industry when asked by a Geriatric Specialist to start and develop a Gerontology practice. She helped establish a care program that followed seniors from hospital to home care ensuring that they would be able to age in place. Her passion in working with seniors led her to work in the Home Care field. There she spent time working with hospitals, nursing facilities, assisted-living and independent-living communities to help maintain continuity of care throughout the aging process. Shauna comes to A Place For Mom with a vast knowledge of the transition process and how to assist families in their decision process.

Shauna is a wife and a mom who enjoys spending time with her husband and two little girls. They bring her great joy. In addition to her love of baking, she enjoys the outdoors as well as learning new things about culture and life.

Come join us on Thursday, April 30th, and learn more about how to choose the right type of long-care facility for your mom or dad, grandparent, aunt or uncle, or a brother or sister. Shauna has a wonderful PowerPoint presentation and will happily answer questions for you.

Now that Derby time is upon us, wear your favorite hat to our April OBPA Breakfast. We will even have some special door prizes for the best hat and the craziest hat! Now if you're just not a “hat” person, don't let that stop you from attending a great meeting to learn and network your business. Bring along a guest, too!
