In her enhanced role, Schafer will spearhead the creation and implementation of leadership development programs to prepare Seniorlink employees for nationwide growth as the company expands its available services and technologies.

Her top priority going forward will be investing in talent development programs for employees at all levels of the company.

“I am pleased to help lead the growth of an innovative company that understands how retaining and growing talent is as important as hiring new members to a team,” Schafer said. “As a growing, purpose-driven organization committed to supporting family caregivers who manage the care of their loved ones at home, all of Seniorlink’s 500+ employees work in an environment where their individual contributions will make a positive impact on others daily. Our people are proud to be part of an organization that is equally focused on its employees.”

This investment allows us to prepare for the anticipated growth of the business as it moves from serving thousands of families now to the millions we aspire to serve in the future.”
