Tune in for insights and resources from Kristen Moore Bennett, Health Systems Director of the Alzheimer’s Association.

About Kristen: 

Kristen spent over 20 years in corporate America in the healthcare industry. Disheartened by the fact that “patient-centered care” seemed to be a misnomer, she left to become a realtor. After acquiring the Senior Real Estate Specialist designation, she found her niche, working with older homeowners. She believes that they deserve the additional time and attention needed in making the decision to buy, sell, or downsize their homes. Fast forward to 2022, a position within the Alzheimer’s Association was posted for a Health Systems Director for Arizona, southern Nevada, and Hawaii. It was the perfect fit. Kristen now advocates for our aging population specifically as it pertains to health delivery in hopes of making lasting changes in the way Alzheimer’s and all other dementias are addressed and relieving the stigma associated with a diagnosis.
