Alameda, CA –Elder Care Alliance, a trusted name in senior living and memory care in California, has announced Heather Geller as the organization’s director of communications. In her new position, Geller will be responsible for sharing the stories of residents, team members, and the network of professionals and private citizens who care for older adults in the areas Elder Care Alliance serves.
Elder Care Alliance has been serving seniors for more than 20 years and currently oversees five communities in California with more than 600 total residents. Their mission is to serve their residents in a way that allows them to live at the highest level of independence, with dignity and enjoyment.
Geller looks forward to sharing Elder Care Alliance’s mission with a greater audience.
Prior to joining the team, she spent nearly a decade working in television news in the Amarillo, Fayetteville, and Tulsa markets. Most recently, she served as a sports reporter at Fox 23 News in Tulsa where she covered everything from high school sports to the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder. To Geller, it was more than just covering the X’s and O’s of sports, it was finding and telling out of the box stories that would capture audiences.
“I am excited to join Elder Care Alliance and be a part of a company that is bigger than myself while continuing my passion for creative storytelling,” said Geller. “These communities have such interesting residents and programs that I look forward to sharing with the greater California media outlets.”
Geller enhances Elder Care Alliance’s mission to serve as she will help bring awareness to many of the initiatives the organization has undertaken, including creating dementia-inclusive communities and providing groceries to older adults in need through the Mercy Brown Bag Program.
Originally from Visalia, CA, Geller attended Oklahoma State University, receiving her Bachelor of Arts in sports media broadcast journalism, and California State University in Sacramento. She is excited to return to the Golden State and Bay Area.
Elder Care Alliance, based in Alameda, has been serving seniors and families in California for over 20 years. The organization formed in 1997 and now has grown to a network of five communities: Mercy Retirement & Care Center, AlmaVia of San Francisco, AlmaVia of San Rafael, AlmaVia of Camarillo and The Villa at San Mateo.
