sarah ohara 02 webQ&A with Sarah O’Hara, Executive Director, Senior LIFE

What was your first job?
My first healthcare related job was in case management working with adults who suffered a traumatic brain injury.

How did you get into the senior care/health care industry? Why?
My undergraduate degree is in Social Services and I have always enjoyed helping others to live their best life possible. That’s what attracted me to work for a company like Senior LIFE that strives to keep seniors living at home for as long as possible, and give them the best medical and supportive care that they need. What is even better is that we can customize each member’s care plan to meet their specific needs, all at no cost to those who qualify for our program.
