Jessica Bawden is a Senior Care Advisor with Senior Care Authority in Mesa, Arizona. After completing her undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering at the University of Arizona, Jessica spent 10 years working as an engineer in the medical device industry, primarily focused on vascular disease devices. Throughout her engineering career, Jessica kept looking for the much-needed fulfillment that comes from helping others and started volunteering in assisted living homes. Her desire to serve seniors grew from the love she has for her own grandparents who have been immensely influential in her life. As a result, she spent countless hours providing companionship care for senior residents in assisted living homes, and developed a love and passion for working with them. Jessica saw firsthand the improvement in quality of life that comes when one receives specialized care and realized she wanted to be a part of that process.
After years of planning and preparation, Jessica left her career in engineering and embarked on this new journey. She admits, “Initially, I didn’t see myself becoming a consultant on senior care options. It wasn’t until I realized just how much everyone involved in this transition can benefit from these services – from the individuals needing care, to their loving families, and the health care providers. When it is time for a loved one to transition into long term care, families can feel overwhelmed at a time when they need to make crucial life-changing decisions. I can help them navigate this process as their personal guide and advocate, identifying the best solutions for the family’s unique needs.”
