Alzheimer’s Caregiver Resource Group Announces the Appointment of a New Board Member: Ignacio Quinones
Alzheimer’s & Dementia Resource Center (ADRC) announced today the appointment of Ignacio Quinones to the organization’s board of directors, effective May 27, 2021. The Orlando-area non-profit group supports and educates families and caregivers of those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
Quiñones is President and Co-Founder of North Star Senior Advisors and North Star Cares. Ignacio has over a decade of experience as an executive in healthcare sales and operations executive. He has spent the past 15 years working in the geriatrics field. As a U.S. Army Veteran, he also worked as a Licensed Practical Nurse in caring for our soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. An advocate for seniors, Quiñones is committed to helping them identify their specific care needs as they age. He holds a BS in Business Management from the University of Phoenix and an MBA from Nova Southeastern University.
ADRC was founded in 1984 by the late Pat Jimison in her Winter Park living room. When Pat’s husband, Jack, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease she and her daughter, Shellie Brassler, looked around for information and support and found none. Over the past 37 years, ADRC has helped more than 100,000 Central Florida caregivers through workshops, support groups, and one-on-one care coaching sessions.
“I am honored to be a part of this wonderful organization and to help serve those in need. I have been incredibly impressed by the work, resources, and education provided by ADRC to caregivers and families when they have needed it most here in Central Florida,” says Quiñones. “We are so pleased to welcome Ignacio to ADRC’s board. We look forward to the amazing contribution his experience and passion for helping caregivers of those living with dementia will bring to our organization,” says Kerrin Kuhn, Executive Director, ADRC.
