Pathways for Aging works to help older adults and their families Thrive!
In an effort to meet the unique and growing needs of older adults in the St. Louis area, Pathways for Aging strives to help our Aging Population Improve their Quality of Life so all can Age Well. We also provide Guidance, Skills, and Support to the Families of older and disabled adults.
Pathways for Aging began providing in-home geriatric care management, counseling, and therapy specifically intended for older adults in 2004. The primary goal of Pathways for Aging is to promote and improve the overall well-being of our growing aging population and the families who care for them.
The organization is rooted in a Social Work Model, meaning we focus “on the person in their environment.” Our expertise is in the area of aging, and has grown to include the needs of caregivers as well. We have seen the impact of prolonged caregiving on families and recognize that they must be supported so they can support their aging loved ones.
Our group of professional Clinical Social Workers hold Masters Degrees in Social Work, are licensed in the State of Missouri, and are Medicare approved mental health providers, who specialize in working with older and/or disabled adults and their families. Our Care Managers hold advanced degrees in Social Work and Gerontology.
