- About Sharon
Experience and expertise in serving your aging parent’s needs
Sharon Miles has been a Aging Life Care Consultant since 1996. Her experiences in caring for her mother inspired her to pursue a degree in Social Work and Gerontology. She assists aging individuals and disabled adults to remain independent in their own homes and connected to their community for as long as possible.
As owner of Senior Care Options, she specializes in offering support to families navigating the maze of home care for the elderly person. By combining a careful assessment with her extensive knowledge of available services, she provides assistance in arranging for and monitoring care on a long- and short-term basis.
In addition, she is an empathetic listener and superior problem solver. In addition to her private practice, Sharon has served disabled adults as well as the elderly through the State of New Mexico Disabled and Elderly Medicaid Waiver Program since 2000. This program also enables individuals to stay in their communities and avoid placement in a nursing home. The knowledge she has acquired on state funded programs has been invaluable to the families and individuals she services.
