Local Pharmacy Offers New Resource for Seniors

As Baby Boomers reach retirement age and live longer, the need for educated professionals able to cater to the unique health, social and financial needs of seniors continues to grow as well.

Cabarrus County seniors now have a new resource to assist them in the aging process. Cannon Pharmacies’ Amanda Buck, CSA, has completed a comprehensive course through the Society of Certified Senior Advisors® (SCSA), earning the certification of Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)®. 

The CSA designation, in conjunction with 17 years’ experience in helping individuals assess their needs and find resources in the community, means seniors and their families now have a professional they can rely on to meet their needs as they are going through transitions in their lives. 

“I learned so many valuable resources while working for local government,” Buck says. “However, by taking this course and becoming certified, I am confident in my knowledge in working through all facets of the aging process, and how it impacts individuals.” 

As a Certified Senior Advisor, Buck has received the education and training to better serve senior clients. She is required to participate in continuing education to ensure she is well versed on the changes and updates that affect the needs of seniors as they relate to successfully navigating through the aging process. 

“By combining the expertise found in the pharmacists I work alongside and having the knowledge that comes as being a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)®, we are recognizing the unique needs of the growing senior population and working with the individual to find options that help them,” she explains.

For more information about CSA services, visit www.csa.us or contact Amanda Buck at 704-933-6337, ext. 3007.
