Official Bio of Patti Urban, CDP,CSA
As an entrepreneur since 1996 and owner of several successful businesses, Patti continues to blaze new trails and take on challenges, finding ways to help families transition at the beginning of family life and at the end. Her newest venture, Aging Care Planning Solutions, offers a holistic approach to caring for older adults. The concept was born out of her work with seniors and her observation of the suffering of her end-of-life clients and the gap that exists between hospitals, hospice, and the patient. Its primary purpose is to empower individuals to make their own choices with regard to care and planning.
Patti is the former Executive Director of The Shoreline of Clinton, a memory-care only assisted living community. She is also the former owner of Comfort Keepers of Guilford CT, the industry leader in providing in-home care that allows older adults and others needing assistance to live happy, fulfilling lives in the comfort of their own homes.

“The country is aging at a rapid pace and there aren’t enough caregivers to go around. We have this silver tsunami coming in. They are not as compliant as this generation. They don’t follow the doctor’s instructions, instead they’re going to question it, and they aren’t going to take no for an answer.” ~Patti Urban
