About the Founder

Clare Colamaria, Founder/ President and CEO

Clare Colamaria’s personal journey in becoming the Founder of A Senior’s Choice in 2009 is a fascinating story. It touches a subject with complex challenges we will all one day face—ill-prepared, not knowing where to turn.

Her clients’ stories are wide and varied and most have a common theme: Without a plan in place someone is unexpectedly thrust into the dark, unknown, dreadful territory that comes with guiding eldercare and living transitions for parents, loved ones and, even one day, ourselves. A Senior’s Choice is a clearinghouse and resource center that benefits families, while Clare personally serves as a major advocate in bringing awareness to the many areas associated with life’s transitions as we age.

A beacon of light

In 2007 Clare found herself in a crisis situation. Faced with the illness of her father who had been hospitalized, she was told he could not return home. With no one to guide her, Clare was forced to rely on what the hospital ordered, which was to find immediate placement for her father. Because of lack of knowledge and resources available, her father spent the last four years of his life in a nursing home, not the quality of life she ever wished for him—nor one did he deserve.

Today as founder and owner of A Senior’s Choice, Clare is empowered with industry knowledge and a keen awareness of the vast possibilities and numerous opportunities available to meet this kind of challenge and many more for senior eldercare options.

In addition to her private consulting work, Clare is a contributing writer for The Saratoga TODAY newspaper; has been a guest on numerous talk radio shows; appeared on Health Link with Benita Zahn and News Channel 13 Sunday Morning Show; speaks as an advocate and educator on the subject of eldercare transitions for a number of organizations, corporations, and associations; presenter at panel discussions on cost vs. care vs. quality of life throughout upstate NY; belongs to numerous organizations as a supporting member and volunteer. Clare resides in Saratoga Springs where she raises her two beautiful children Elle (18) and Hunter (16).
