Apex Care was proud to participate at the Seniors Against Financial Exploitation (S.A.F.E.) Seminar on
Friday, September 22, 2017. This wonderful seminar was hosted and presented by the Stanislaus Elder Abuse Prevention Alliance (SEAPA). The focus of the seminar was about teaching the essentials on how to protect yourself and those for whom you care against elder abuse and exploitation.

 

 

The Keynote presentation was from Bill DeHart, Vice Mayor City of Turlock.

The seminar also included a wonderful presentation from Dr. Stuart Tomlin, who talked about the risk of physicians over-prescribing medications and the negative impact of this practice. The DA’s Victim Services representative talked about Identity theft and how to get assistance with the DA’s office. He also discussed telemarketer abuse, including the simple rule to not answer any phone call from a number that you are not familiar with. Yee Vue from the Valley Caregiver Resource Center provided information regarding respite caregiver services for Stanislaus County.

Overall, this was a wonderfully helpful and insightful event. All of the tables were full and the seniors were very involved and interactive!

 

Jason Wu, President

President at ApexCare
I first became aware of the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease ten years ago when my grandmother was diagnosed with this disease.I saw firsthand how critical it was to have a loving family or caregiver to ensure my grandmother’s safety and daily well-being.My grandmother was fortunate enough to have close family members who cared for her as her Alzheimer’s disease progressed.

Since then, I have had a strong interest in helping and supporting our senior community as they age and are unable to care for themselves.Coming from a family of physicians, I am excited to be involved in the medical community by providing the highest levels of non-clinical in-home care to our clients and their families.With my work experience, I firmly believe that ApexCare can touch many lives and have a great impact on our local senior community.

Prior to joining ApexCare, I worked in a wide variety of industries and have owned multiple businesses ranging from construction to mortgage banking.Outside of work, I am an active youth soccer and basketball coach, having coached recreational soccer for over 8 years and elementary school basketball for over 4 years.I graduated with a BS in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and received a Masters of Management degree from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.My career has been focused on building great organizations that deliver the highest absolute levels of service to our clients.I look forward to continuing this passion with ApexCare.
