Diane Skaff is a licensed practical nurse and certified care manager located in Sun City, Arizona. She started Senior Support Solutions in 2012 and has been providing quality care for her clients since. She currently serves clients located in the greater Pheonix area.
Ms. Skaff first graduated from Arizona State University with a BA in Communication Studies while minoring in Gerontology. Prior to that, she had received her LPN license from Scottsdale Community College. She is also a Certified Geriatric Care Manager (CMC) and has maintained her license since.
Diane was introduced to the field of gerontology when she was providing care for her mother with her brother and sister. As she was acting as a caretaker for her mother, she became increasingly aware of how difficult small caretaking tasks were becoming. As she was going through decisions early on, her family was alone in making decisions in handling the situation in a way that would preserve her mothers wishes. Eventually, the decisions became more difficult.
This experience pointed her toward care management and providing the services that she wished were available when she was caring for her mother. She aims to be the person that clients and families can consult with when care becomes more difficult for the caregivers involved.
Areas of Practice: Advocacy, Assessment, Care Management, Consultation, Crisis Intervention, Education, Guidance for Adults with Disabilities, Information/Referral, Insurance, Placement.
