People are living longer today and facing problems that simply didn’t exist for most of the population just a few decades ago. With the average life expectancy estimated at seventy-eight years old, baby boomers are not only worried about paying for their children’s college education, they are increasingly worried about financing care during their last years of life, and rightfully so.
This may eclipse the other investments they make by far. If you are in your mid-sixties today there is a good chance you’ll be living another twenty years.
Charles was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2008, he relocated to San Diego, California after being accepted into the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). He later graduated from UCSD with a Bachelor of Science in General Biology. While in school, Charles was active in medical organizations on campus and eventually transitioned into interning as a Clinical Career Extender at Pomerado Hospital. In this role, Charles assisted nurses with daily patient care functions and began to fortify his strong caregiving skills, which have carried over into his current position with Grace Care. Charles has since continued to take classes and work as a caregiver while preparing to apply to become a Physician’s Assistant (PA).
