Kevin’s life and the lives of his immediate family have been impacted by caregivers – either as a patient or a caregiver – for as long as he can remember. He watched his mother take care of his grandmother until her death at the age of 97. Five years later, his father passed from a neurological disorder that was subsequently confirmed as Lewy Body Dementia. In 2007, his wife, Lori, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. The symptoms of Lori’s disease required Kevin to hire a caregiver during the periods of her relapses.
Prior to purchasing Elder Care, Kevin spent over 20 years in the health insurance industry. In his most recent position, he was in a financial operations role with Humana where he worked with doctors, nurses and other health professionals developing programs to keep Humana members healthy. Their focus on primary care and medication adherence improved the lives of thousands of seniors in Kansas City and the surrounding area.
Kevin and his wife, Lori, have three children. Kevin has Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Missouri.
