About Melanie DiNicola

Cara Lapic is a dedicated, highly motivated professional who loves finding solutions to challenges. She has spent almost thirty years in the corporate and academic world doing just that.

During her tenure in the corporate world, life changed drastically – her father passed, her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and she became a guardian to her sister, while at the same time dealing with a serious health issue herself. While learning to navigate the complex web of support services for her own family, she noticed her growing empathy for others needing to walk down the same road. Why not help them in their journey to make life as fulfilling as possible for their loved ones? She thought of no better way to move forward with her next chapter of work and giving back. She found Senior Care Authority could fulfill this desire for her.


Find the Right Care for Your Loved One

After your initial consultation, Melanie will work with you throughout the transition process to ensure that you are comfortable with the move.

She will help you sort through and understand all your care options, traverse a complex healthcare system, get accurate and up-to-date information, and connect you to vetted local resources.

As a Certified Senior Advisor, Melanie can help you make the right decision based on your needs, resources, and goals.
