Choice Connections of NC Founder and CEO CORINNE AUMAN

As a teenager I watched my Mother struggle with the difficult decisions that had to be made with my Grandmother when she transitioned to a new home.  As I watched my Mother sort through all of the information, while working a full-time job and raising two children, I thought “there has to be a better way.”  Today, with Choice Connections, there is.  Choice Connections of NC helps families navigate the complex senior living world to make well-informed decisions.  Our team will help you and your family make the best choice while making the process as stress-free as possible.

Corinne Auman, her husband and four children live in Greensboro, NC.  She received her Ph.D. from NC State University, where she studied developmental psychology with a specialty in adulthood and aging.  She is an experienced educator and researcher, having worked at the Durham VA Medical Center, the Center for Aging at Duke University Medical Center, Presbyterian College, Elon University and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

In Winston-Salem and Surrounding Areas Call Tricia House

As the daughter of two seniors, with a background in senior services, I have recently become uniquely qualified to understand and appreciate the value in the services of Choice Connections.  My parents, ages 86 and 89, are currently living with us.  As their current caregiver I am involved in the conversations that revolve around what type of services can benefit them now and in the future.  When they consider that they may need a senior community in the future, we consider the culture of the community, the attempted projection of their future healthcare needs, what payment/insurance options they will have, and ultimately how to determine the right choice the first time.

Choice Connections gives me the privilege to provide seniors and their families with the unique opportunity to have a personalized, hands-on “concierge” assist them with the many steps involved in deciding how to plan for the future.  I give you the unbiased tools to make a decision that reflects your needs and wants and allows you to flourish while making the process enjoyable and as stress-free as possible.

In Raleigh and Surrounding Areas Call Ashley Beale

From a young age, I had a special connection with seniors. I always felt more at home with my grandmother and her friends than I did with people my own age. As years passed, I saw my parents’ attempt to juggle their responsibilities at home and work with the needs of my aging grandmother. My parents were “flying blind” and struggled to find resources. By the time I was ready to choose a career, my grandmother had passed away, but I knew she could live on in my service to other seniors.
 
Choice Connections is the navigational system my parents did not have. With 10+ years of experience as a social worker in skilled nursing care and retirement communities, I can provide a road map to families looking for solutions to their care giving needs in the Triangle. Families who work with me will have all the tools needed to make an informed decision regarding care. Whether the goal is aging in place at home or moving to a local senior community, families can feel assured they will be supported and their loved one will be treated with dignity and respect.
