Outstanding Onondaga County Community Member Nominee

Melissa Seifter is an Aging Life Care Manager and owner of Aging Advocates CNY Care Management & Senior Real Estate Specialists.

Her goal is to help her clients with their aging journey and live their best quality of life whether it’s in their own home or a retirement community. “Aging is not one size fits all and shouldn’t be treated as such.”

What started as a sales and marketing role for a senior living community quickly evolved into a career as an Aging Life Care Manager. She earned a certificate in gerontology, joined the Aging Life Care Association as a professional care manager and certified dementia practitioner. She combined her experience in senior housing and real estate to offer a unique service meeting the needs of clients considering a move later in life and all that goes along with that major life transition.

She launched her own business during the Covid-19 pandemic because she knew she could make a difference in the lives of older adults who became more isolated than ever due to the virus.

Melissa believes strongly in the importance of senior healthcare professionals working together to achieve the goals of our local aging population and participates in several groups to do so such. Melissa is a proud member of the Community Living Advocates group, volunteer with the Alzheimer’s Association and founder of “lunches for caregivers” a recent initiative delivering meals and messages of gratitude for those working in senior healthcare facilities during the pandemic. In partnership with local business and community members, over 600 meals to 12 different communities have been distributed so far, with another round scheduled in May for nurse’s week.

Community Living Advocates is honored to nominate Melissa Seifter and Aging Advocates CNY Care Management & Senior Real Estate Specialists as the 2021 Serving Seniors Honoree of the Year.
