Kelly O’Connor knows what it’s like to care for loved ones through all stages of illness and aging. For most of her 20s, Kelly cared for older and ailing family members, serving as a caregiver for her mother who had cancer, and as a long-distance caregiver for her two grandmothers. At a young age, she held the responsibility of making critical healthcare and estate decisions during a time of crisis.
After the unfortunate passings of her mom and maternal grandmother, Kelly turned her focus to an exciting career as a corporate communications executive in the fashion industry. She worked with all the top magazines, television shows, movies and celebrity stylists, but her heart was calling her to contribute her talents and experiences in a larger, more meaningful way. She returned to school and received a master’s in psychology and started volunteering with various philanthropic organizations. While volunteering for a local hospice in Denver, a friend called and said, “I have the job for you.”
“And the rest is history,” Kelly says. She began a heartfelt second career in the senior living industry as a move and transitions coordinator for a large retirement community. To date, she has helped more than 250 families select and move into senior living communities, including assisted living, memory support, and long-term care skilled nursing, as well as independent living.
“Selecting an assisted living or memory support community is one of the most difficult decisions a person can ever face,” says Kelly. “My greatest joy comes from helping people in the midst of a crisis and supporting them through the process of finding the best option to meet their needs.”
In her role as Senior Care Advisor, Kelly meets one-on-one with families to assess their needs, schedules and accompanies them on tours of pre-approved communities, assists with negotiations and paperwork, and always follows up to make sure her clients are thriving in their new homes.
Kelly spends a great deal of time inspecting locations, meeting with staff and reviewing state reports for citations to help her clients make the best, most informed decision for their loved ones.
Kelly’s passion for seniors is backed up by national and international certifications. She has completed Certified Eden Associate Training with the Eden Alternative, Masterpiece Living Academy associate training for Successful Aging, and associate training through Naomi Feil’s Validation Training Institute. She has also served as a ‘Music and Memories” volunteer for residents with Alzheimer’s and dementia and currently teaches at Clermont College of Creative Life, where the average student age is late-80s.
“Seeing my clients make new friends in their new homes makes my heart sing. I love seeing the relief on their families’ faces when they know their loved one is happy. Every day is a new opportunity, and there is always someone to help.
Proudly serving the following areas:
