While working on her degree she also received a Certificate in Gerontology. After graduating Ariel went to The University of Georgia where she earned her Masters of Social Work degree.


After beginning her Social Work career in Atlanta, Georgia, Ariel relocated to Austin. She began working for a hospice and home health company. In 2010, while still working as a hospice social worker, Ariel started Texas Family Services (TFS). TFS was founded to help families find housing options for seniors. Ariel had already toured and worked in many of the communities so it was a natural fit.


In 2013 Ariel expanded TFS to include Senior Services of Austin which specializes in Geriatric Case Management services. In 2013 Ariel’s grandfather’s illness found her helping to navigate the complexities of his care. The guidance she provided in managing long-term care insurance, private caregivers, and the medical professionals helped to alleviate family stress. Throughout this personal experience, Ariel recognized how important case management services are to seniors and their families.

John Brown


I began my career in 1979, when I went to work in the pharmacy retail drugstore business. I spent 36 years with one company, and had the opportunity to learn and grow as the Central Texas and Austin area continued to expand. My wife and I have always been committed to staying in the Austin area to raise our children; it truly is a special place to raise a family. One of the goals I have for the next chapter in my life is to help people by continuing to give back to local non-profits serving the aging population. As a community leader and local volunteer, serving people has always been a passion. As a caregiver for my mother as she progresses through the later stages of dementia with added complex medical conditions, I’ve learned first-hand the challenges facing families during these difficult transitions. I’m also reminded of the responsibilities we have to honor and provide for our seniors, as I volunteer and work with local non-profit boards focused on the aging population. I have committed myself to helping seniors through transitions and their daily living needs, offering dignity and passion to do what’s best for them.

This Month's Speakers:


Dr. Norma Perez


  Norma J. Perez, PhD is a licensed clinical psychologist with over fifteen years of experience. She obtained her PhD at the University of Rhode Island and completed her Clinical Fellowship at Brown University. She has a private practice in Lakeway and provides individual and couples psychotherapy. Additionally, she does psychological assessments and neurocognitive assessments to assess for dementia.

 

Dr. Perez has been working with older adults in their homes and senior living facilities since coming to the Lakeway area. It has been through her work with older adults that has driven her to study the research and identify strategies to healthy aging. 


When working with her clients, she looks at the big picture. She looks at why they sought her out, but then also assesses other aspects of their life, such as their social and family life, their health issues, and their functional abilities. She believes that when one area of a person’s life is off balance, it is most likely affecting the other areas of their life. She strives to help her clients improve their overall quality of life, not just the presenting issues.


Dr. Perez is currently working towards her certification as a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider. Through this training she will be able to help her clients identify more evidence-based holistic approaches to alleviating symptoms and supporting their mental health using diet and nutrition. 


On a personal note, she is married to a wonderful husband of thirty-eight years, has two beautiful daughters and two handsome sons-in-law, who combined have given her three handsome grandsons. She enjoys gardening, hiking, and spending time at the beach.
