Cynthia Perthuis leads the Senior Care Authority office in New York City after a 30+ year career managing teams in client support and service, sales and relationship management, product and business development. Her own personal experience with her parents and her entrepreneurial background brought her to SCA. She worked with her parents between 2010 and 2017 to find the right care, both in-home and assisted living. The stress of helping aging loved ones and working full-time and caring for her own family while living over 1500 miles apart was overwhelming at times. She often wished there was a non-conflicted industry professional to help when facing these life-changing decisions. However, at the end of that process, she also felt she had earned a degree in assisted living and aging issues including the Alzheimer’s disease that affected her father.
As a Baby Boomer and business owner in the elder care space, Cynthia finds that each and every day, friends and clients are seeking her advice about aging issues including care for aging parents. She has a passion for helping others and advocating for those that do not have the ability to speak for themselves. Her listening and communication skills as well as her networking abilities give her an insight into potential solutions to difficult and seemingly impossible challenges. Her diverse business experience and her advocacy work through the years give Cynthia a unique skillset for assisted living placement.
Cynthia has been an active volunteer, board member and fundraiser for over 35 years with nonprofit organizations in the areas of arts and culture, healthcare, child welfare, environmental sustainability and church. She is passionate about continuing education opportunities in the field of elder care and is an avid reader of industry articles around the latest trends.
Cynthia is originally from Texas and holds a degree from Baylor University. She has made her home, for the past 17 years in New York City. She enjoys everything the city has to offer across all five boroughs including food, art, sports, education and cultural events. She enjoys travel and outdoor activities and has practiced yoga regularly for over 15 years. She currently divides her time between New York and Florida.
