About Us

We are passionate about our work

ElderTree Care Management Services was founded in 2004 by Kate Caldwell, MA, CMC on the philosophy that the elderly should lead the most fulfilling life possible with the upmost dignity focusing on their physical, mental, and spiritual strengths and well being. Kate has always had a deep passion for working with the elderly stemming all the way back to high school when she worked as an activity assistant in a nursing home. Kate’s passion for serving elders inspired her to found ElderTree and to put together a strong team of compassionate, certified, and professional care managers that share in her philosophy.

The ElderTree team is passionate about their work and dedicated to advocating for the elderly and disabled. We specialize in Care Management and recommend services that are appropriate for your loved one. ElderTree is a member of Aging Life Care™ (ALCA), previously known as the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers.  Our care managers are certified or in the process of being certified by the National Academy of Certified Care Managers (NACCM).

We help empower our clients

ElderTree’s mission is to support our clients so they feel safe, secure, and empowered to create the highest quality of life possible while bringing peace of mind to family and friends who are concerned.

We are connected to the community

ElderTree is uniquely connected in the community. We know the local eldercare services and their reputation, and can help ensure success by working with others whose history and strengths we understand.
