Liz Barlowe, MA, CMC was recently elected as President of the Aging Life Care Association® Board of Directors (ALCA). Aging Life Care Professionals® have advanced degrees and are experts in health and human services.

They assist families with the myriad of considerations through cost-effective strategies and superior service.
As a member of ALCA, Ms. Barlowe adheres to the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics developed by the association and its members to ensure public accountability. Barlowe has been practicing as an Aging Life Care Professional® since 2000. “I am proud to lead the association that defines excellence in my profession and is dedicated to education, professional development, and the highest ethical standards,” said Barlowe. “We will continue to broaden our footprint in the aging industry; assist families who are experiencing the most challenging time of their lives; and help baby boomers plan for a more successful aging journey.”

Her depth of experience with management of traditional assisted living facilities and those serving individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias; home health; community mental health; senior services, and non-profits inform her leadership to address this growing industry.

Providing Hope Va Steps Up to Save the Life of a Veteran in Need

When the system failed him, luck and a friend with a great memory had other things in mind.
Press Release – updated: Dec 9, 2019 18:19 EST

FREDERICKSBURG, Va., December 9, 2019 (Newswire.com) – Everybody needs a hand at some point in life. But it seems our nation’s heroes, veterans who served, usually have a harder time asking for help than the general population. And Mike Hayter, a Navy veteran with roots so deep that a warship was even named after his ancestors, is no different.
Mike needed critical tests and what would end up being lifesaving chemotherapy treatments to live beyond six months. Those were the words the doctor spoke to him — words nobody ever wants to hear.
With some insurance hang-ups and no time for the VA to go through a lengthy approval process, Mike was lucky enough to have a good friend recommend an organization he knew of called Providing Hope Va.
In a matter of days, Providing Hope Va was contacted and provided the lifesaving funding Mike needed. His tests did, in fact, prove Pancreatic Cancer, but Mike now has a fighting chance at life with monthly chemotherapy treatments, facilitated by Providing Hope Va.

To help support our nation’s veterans, Providing Hope Va regularly raises much-needed funding by selling tickets for big prize giveaways. With the latest giveaway, the grand prize winner will get to choose between two of America’s most iconic favorites: A 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport or a 2018 Ford Mustang Shelby GT-350.
