Earlier this month a major step forward in the future of Elderbridge Agency on Aging took place.
The agency Board of Directors named Shelly Sindt the new Chief Executive Officer for Elderbridge after she served the past two years as the Co-Executive Director of the agency.
Sindt joined Elderbridge three and half years ago as the Case Management Coordinator. She came to Elderbridge through its merger with the Northwest Area Agency on Aging in Spencer where Sindt served as the Case Management Coordinator for 15 years.
Shelly is a member of the Iowa Coalition on Mental Health, the Area Agency on Aging State Case Management Coordinators group and the National Council on Aging. In addition, Sindt has developed strong professional partnerships with local, regional and state agencies. She has worked as a nurse supervisor serving adults with severe and persistent mental illness, as well as a supervisor of case management services for the frail elderly. Shelly also has specialized training in the areas of Falls Prevention, Substitute Decision Maker, Grant Writing, Benefits Counseling, Aging and Disability Resource Center and Mental Health.
