About Me

 

Deborah Burton – Owner Senior’s Choice Consulting

Deborah Burton, Owner

I have worked in various roles in healthcare, public health research and elder advocacy for almost 30 years.

I have a Master’s of Science in Gerontology in the Management of Aging Services and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I am a member of Sigma Phi Omega (SPO), the International Academic Honor and Professional Society in Gerontology. I am also a member of the Gerontological Society of America.

Since 2012, I have been a regular participant in the Rhode Island Lieutenant Governors Long Term Care Coordinating Council (LTCCC). The LTCCC addresses issues that affect Seniors’ quality of life. I am a member of the Legislative and Aging in Community subcommittees.

As a former employee of the Alliance for Better Long Term Care,  I have trained more than a dozen Certified Volunteer Long Term Care Ombudsman in how to provide health care oversight and advocacy for residents in assisted living facilities and nursing homes.

Most importantly, I am passionate about sharing information about Elder Care and Elder Issues!
