Official Bio of Patti Urban, 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.

Oh Patti! Bless you for your patience. I have seen this cycle before. Neither of them would tell me any of this. If there is anything I can do, please let me know. I appreciate all you are trying to do. He doesn't make things easy. I am thankful for all you do for my parents....... Laura C.
Patti, we are both so very thankful that you came into our lives. I can never thank you enough for all you did for my mom. You helped her, along with all the nurses and aides, live a better life with her time with you. We will never forget you. My mom had a smile on her face when she left us and you helped her keep that smile...... Fran D.
“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
