Good service requires empathy. I have personally experienced the challenges involved in this assisted-living journey. For that, and other reasons, I can be your shoulder to lean on as you find the right long-term care solution.
It's so rewarding to help families sort through complicated options. I want people to make the best possible decision. It makes such a difference in quality of life. So I point people toward care providers who understand the impact of nutrition, exercise, mindfulness, and music on health.
As your reliable guide to assisted living in the East Bay, I offer you relevant information, analysis of options, and a penchant for problem-solving.
Equally important, you will have access to my broad network of long-term care and senior-service professionals.
Please call 510-926-0699 to talk about I might help you find the ideal community of care.

Linda J. knows how to help people make certain life-changing decisions and how to do things better with digital technology. Three decades of helping people benefit from understanding complex, new ideas have turned her into a professional explainer.
Your search process will be much more efficient because Elders Together applies scientific and journalistic research techniques to find the most suitable solutions for each family's unique situation. Clients enjoy clear, consistent communication honed by Linda's years as writer/editor of “how-to” books and articles for computer fans -- and as co-founding editor of Wired magazine -- and as course provider for SF State University's adult education program.
Linda knows what it's like to juggle the competing demands of aging parents, young children, and full-time job. (As a communications expert, Linda was the first virtual reality evangelist as well as marketing strategist and content producer at Silicon Graphics, Logitech, Xerox PARC, and Atari.)
Linda's long-time interest in neuroscience and cognitive psychology now borders on obsession. This fascination took hold in the '90s when Linda studied perception and cognition for her market research work with engineers designing the earliest commercial virtual reality systems. Around that same time, Linda's elders developed cognitive impairments. They struggled to age with dignity and joy. Such experiences ultimately inspired Linda's career transition, and mission to use her skills for helping others, instead of for pushing pixels.
Now she's finding ways to do both at the same time.
