Hi, I’m Jill Kent, the owner of Senior Concierge Services of Iowa.
I have elderly parents in another state, and I know how hard it can be to balance the needs of aging parents with a career and family
responsibilities. You know … life. I created this company because I knew
I couldn't be the only one needing direction and support as I navigate
these challenges. I often thought:
"If only there was someone near my parents I could call to check on
them, take them to the doctor, whatever - I just need help."
Among my friends, caring for family members is a big topic of
conversation, and when I started this company, it was with the idea that
no one should have to do this alone. Read more about what we do.
I hold a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Iowa and an undergraduate degree in family services from the University of Missouri.
I am licensed to practice independently in the state of Iowa, and I've worked as a clinical social worker in the Des Moines area since 1992.
I am experienced in providing mental health and dementia evaluations, mediating family conferences, advocating, and navigating hospice and palliative care issues. I am passionate about individuals having advance directives and getting everyone to have the difficult family conversations we all need to have.
I’m married with three grown daughters and four darling little grandchildren. I like to travel the world, and I like to stay home. I golf,
read and stay active in the community. I served on the Urbandale School board, the Urbandale Girls Recreation Association, state and local boards and committees of the Iowa chapter of the National Association of Social Workers, and the Urbandale Parks and Recreation Board. Until recently
I served as a Volunteer Ombudsman with the Iowa Department of Aging.
Call me today - you don't have to do this on your own.
I’m looking forward to meeting you and learning your family story. I hope we can help. We will do everything we can to earn your trust and confidence. Thank you for your interest in Senior Concierge Services of Iowa.
