ABOUT YOUR ADVISORS IN Lehigh Valley
Certified Senior Advisor®
As we age, change in our lives is seldom easy. In 2010 my mother was stricken and my father and I needed the help of a senior care facility, but no one was there to guide or advise us. In the years that followed I have spent much time with my father, now alone in his senior world. His memories are vivid of a strong and proud Marine serving in Italy in 1945 as WWII came to a close. The Greatest Generation. They, and those that followed, deserve better. They made a difference.
My focus is helping seniors and their families at that critical time when the decision is made for a loved one to move to a senior care facility. It is my passion to give back. I will advise families by personally showing them the best options for the perfect senior care facility with the dignity of their loved one at the forefront. Always. That is why I want to work with Oasis Senior Advisors, to make a difference.
Living in Lower Macungie in the Lehigh Valley, I feel so blessed with my lovely wife and two very kind teenage daughters. I have also been a life-long teacher and mentor to many, having served in the Peace Corps in Africa and having worked with high school and college students, helping them find their direction. I also teach Japanese Karate, as one of the highest ranking martial arts experts in America - 8th Degree Black Belt. The proceeds of this instruction go to help young orphans and refugees at the Schools of Hope near Chiang Mai, Thailand. Having traveled to over 40 countries, also speaking Arabic and Japanese, my mission continues to be a diverse man of the world, helping others and giving back. I will continue making a difference while working with Oasis Senior Advisors.
Ron has been involved in helping seniors ever since he became his mother's caregiver over 5 years ago. He quickly realized that he was unprepared for this role and began educating himself about the many services and resources available to assist seniors. He developed a passion for this and took a job in the senior healthcare field.
His role allowed him to visit senior facilities in the Lehigh Valley. He used this experience when it was time to find a facility for his grandmother. He knows how overwhelming this process can be for families. When the company he was working for was sold, he decided to make a change. Helping families choose the right senior housing option as an Oasis Senior Advisor was the perfect fit for him.
Ron is a Certified Dementia Practitioner and he is on the Advisory Council for the Lehigh County Department of Aging. He has an education background and often does presentations related to seniors, such as: 'Understanding Alzheimer's', 'Hospice Myths and Misconceptions', 'Finding the Right Senior Housing Option', and 'The 7 Keys to Successful Aging'.
Ron spent over 40 years living in the Lehigh Valley.
