All About Aging is a Professional Geriatric Care Management company started in 2006 that serves Polk and Highlands Counties in central Florida. We help older individuals and their families enjoy their later years by assisting with navigating the aging process by assessing the current state of the client, developing and implementing care plans, and providing ongoing support and supervision. Many families are unsure about where to get answers as their loved ones age; we are here to provide guidance and assistance when you are ready.
Our Care Managers are also available to give presentations in the community for any topics dealing with aging issues, such as Brain Fitness, Alzheimer’s/dementia, driving, fall prevention, healthy aging, and home safety. Let us know what your concerns are and with our expertise we will develop a presentation for your group, large or small. Check the Community Calendars page to view our upcoming schedules.

Cari received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida in 2009. As All About Aging has grown over the last 6 years, the need developed for an on-staff position to handle IT support, marketing, and administrative duties, so Cari moved back to Winter Haven to support the growth of her mother’s business. Cari is mostly in the office, but also works in the community for special events and large projects like moving clients to a new facility.
