Tara Ackley

LVN Care Manager

Tara Ackley, LVN Care Manager, began working directly with seniors in 2001. She pursued a healthcare degree in 1988 and obtained a clinical license for Respiratory Therapy. Her work in the hospital setting allowed her to practice patient care for all ages and various complex health situations. Soon after, she attended to seniors receiving care in the long-term care skilled nursing setting. It was in 2001 when she managed the private caregiver services provided in the home and then realized the need for professional Care Management oversight. Tara’s desire to better serve her clients and families inspired her in 2017 to obtain a license for Vocational Nursing (LVN). Since then, she has applied all her years of experience, knowledge and compassion to work closely with seniors as their professional Care Manager. In her personal life, Tara has experience with aging parents to include Alzheimer’s, end-of-life care, Acute Leukemia, and Parkinson’s.  Today, Tara brings over 21 years of experience and an authentic compassion for helping others navigate the changes that often accompany aging in place.
