Our co-founder and owner, Erin Kershaw, RN, BSN, MSA, CMC, knows the challenges of caring for aging loved ones. In fact, some clients refer to Erin as a “rented daughter with expertise.” This is because she spent years helping her parents as they navigated medical appointments and living arrangements for her grandmother, who lived out of state. She helped with remote coordination of care by local providers to ultimately address end-of-life care needs.

Erin earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Pennsylvania and had a career in nursing. Following her experiences assisting with her grandmother’s care needs, she was motivated to pursue her master’s degree in long-term care administration, as well as a specialized certification in gerontology, from West Chester University.

An advocate for geriatric care and long-term care, Erin served on the Mid-Atlantic Chapter board of the Aging Life Care Association® (ALCA) and was the unit leader for the Philadelphia Unit of ALCA for several years. Erin also holds the designation of Care Manager Certified (CMC) by the National Academy of Certified Care Managers (NACCM). She belongs to the Caregivers Association of Chester County (Net-Care) and the Chester County Faith Community Health Ministry Network.
