Senior Home Care Agency Expert

Dr. Doris Bersing, PhD Dr. Doris Bersing, PhD Living Well President & CEO Dr. Bersing is the founder and president of Living Well Assisted Living at Home. Doris is passionate about formulating the best practices in eldercare, and helping seniors to age in place: at home! She teaches in different universities in the San Francisco Bay Area and sits as a volunteer in different boards, including the Advisory Council for the UCSF Collaboration (Institute of Health & Aging; School of Medicine and the National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health; and Lesbian Health Research Center) and the Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland– Department of Psychiatry. Author of several books and articles, Doris is now preparing a book about feminism and ageism titled: Still a chance: from Crone to Mentor. Living Well offers specialized care for adults with chronic and debilitating conditions — like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, and mental illness — that compromise their ability to live safely in their homes, where they want to be. As the needs of this population grow more complex — especially when there is loss of memory or mobility — people search for meaningful and manageable solutions. And — as they understand the value of staying at home, the power of autonomy and the importance of community to longevity and health — people seek a new model for elder care. At Living Well, they are forging this new model.
