Janie Shelburn (Owner & Founder)
Day-to-day I am working one-on-one with the aging population in Columbia, MO as a Certified Care Manager and loving every minute of it. I truly believe in taking away the stress of aging by being right there to help people navigate these systems that don't naturally work well together. I also work as a consultant for healthcare facilities.
Online you will see me as a Thriving Aging Coach which is my outreach to the younger generation to get them JAZZED about aging. I give tips on how to age well with a mix of life wisdom that I've gained through spending my life with aging adults. I am passionate that aging should be embraced. I'm here to disrupt aging!
Nurse In The Know
Bahamia Ulysse (Owner & Operator)
I own and operate Ulysse Advocacy & Consulting- a boutique Geriatric Care Management firm. I help millennials, and beyond, who are struggling to find solutions for managing the care of their aging loved ones. Through my 15-year long nursing career, I discovered that once a caregiver has the right knowledge, resources, and support, they are empowered.
Nurse in the Know is the figure I employ, via social media, to fulfill this mission. I create curated content about managing the care of aging loved ones and incorporating essential self-care practices. My vision is for caregivers to experience a more whole and fulfilling journey in their caregiving season.
Red Riding Hood
Ashley (Owner & Operator)
I own and operate Red Riding Hood which is a curated subscription box service that sends care packages to senior citizens. I started the business in hopes of bringing joy to our older friends and family. I also wanted to make it easy for the people sending the gift, but still have it be a very thoughtful gift.
The Listening Ear
I've had a love for the elderly for as long as I can remember. As I’ve worked with this special population throughout my nursing career and in caring for my grandparents, I’ve come to know how vital they are to our society and how much we can learn from their life experiences and wisdom.
While working with them, I’ve noticed how lonely they can be, and that all they really want is for someone to sit down and listen to them.
Too often, their stories go unheard or are forgotten.
I created The Listening Ear Project as a way to be a listening ear for this generation and to share their incredible stories that deserve to be heard. It's been such a rewarding experience for me!
When I’m not hanging out with my elderly friends, you’ll find me spending time with my husband and two little kids, scouting out new restaurants, hiking, reading, or doing ballet.
Thank you for being here and for supporting The Listening Ear Project!
