Dorothy Guajardo (M.A. in Gerontology), A to Z Gerontology business owner, was featured in a press release in the Digital Journal: A Global Digital Media Network.  In it, Guajardo states that "She had first hand experience in the difficulties of looking for home care or hospice care and this inspired her to obtain a degree in Gerontology because she realized there is a real need for people with expertise in the needs of the elderly. She completed her graduate degree in Gerontology at the San Francisco State University. Right after graduation, she joined the senior care industry to gain experience on how to find the best care for the elderly. She also worked for the Northern California branch of the Alzheimer’s Association and through this position she was able to establish connections with home care agencies, support groups for families, day programs, hospice, and people suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s."  Read more:
