Charlie Martino

Advocacy is at the heart of everything Charlie Martino does. His career in the health care field began as an architect specializing in hospitals and nursing homes. He then decided to make his work more personal, and began a second career as a gerontological specialist.

"Planning ahead in our industry, we call that successful aging," Martino said. "Riverside's ChooseHome offers the ability for families to create that plan and creates opportunities for folks to have those conversations."

Prior to joining Riverside's ChooseHome team as a Personal Services Coordinator, Martino operated his own firm, helping families caring for an elderly adult at home access resources in the community to reduce stress and improve the quality of life for everyone involved.
