Welcome to Geriatric Specialists

Dear Friend,

Hello and Welcome! I'm Stephanie Goodin, Owner and Founder of Geriatric Specialists. Many of my friends asked me why I chose a career working with seniors. My answer to this day has not changed.

As a young child I spent endless hours with my grandmother and always
enjoyed being with seniors. Initially I was encouraged in childhood by my mother's lifelong experiences of working with the senior population. Our families’ love and compassion for older adults led my mother to open one of the first homecare companies in Arizona. Numerous years of caring for others soon lead me through the personal journey and the experience of caring for my grandmother.

As my grandmother aged, immense changes were occurring in her life and we were faced with the reality of her losing some of her self-care abilities. Together we began a journey that is lasting us many years. From living independently for years. To a transition into an assisted living community where the onset of early dementia was noticed.  To a small fall that lead to a broken hip. At this point I searched for the best rehabilitation possible.  It was important to meet all of her needs: physical, mental and emotional and that meant that she could not return to assisted living.  My Grandmother is now living the last years of her life with Alzheimer's disease in a lovely Alzheimer’s community we chose for her.

I have the patience, compassion, integrity and an overwhelming passion to make a positive difference in the lives of the people I serve. I understand that making senior living decisions for your loved one may be uncomfortable for you, so call and talk with an experienced senior living specialist.

Together, we'll find the right care for your loved one. I am just a phone call away.
