Tips on choosing a retirement / senior living community


Some personal thoughts from Jeff Bassett, a long time senior/retirement living industry professional of nearly 35 years.

Jeff has worked for both ‘for-profit’ and ‘not-for-profit’ senior living organizations.  His first position in senior living was as a nursing assistant back in 1983 in Ohio.  He has held Executive Director and Administrator roles as well. He is also a Gerontologist, having graduated from Kent State University in Ohio.  He was a state licensed nursing home administrator for 25 years. He recently spoke at the Florida Leading Age annual convention.

He decided to work in the Aging Services field, because of his love and admiration for his mother’s mother (grandma Sue), who grew up in Little Italy on the East side of Cleveland.
