Aging Info Radio host Sue Billings Zawacki has worked in the aging and elder care industry for 15 years.
Her direct contact with seniors and families through her work in the insurance industry focusing on long term care and Medicare policies made her aware of the issues that adult children of aging parents face when trying to find the right resources to assist their aging loved ones.
Sue’s passion to help family caregivers moved her to connect with an organization that published a resource guide for seniors. Her initiative launched and managed the Chicagoland publication providing over 1 million copies to a six county area.
Sue’s work on the board of several senior service provider associations assisted her in understanding the need for resources to help families caring for an aging loved one or who may be concerned about their own aging journey.
She has felt for over a decade there is a growing need for education and resources in the aging and elder care industry. As Sue says, demographically we are on the forefront of a silver tsunami. Sue is passionate about keeping others moving forward while connecting them to help one another with resources and education.
Her entrepreneur spirit brought Aging Info Radio to WJJG – AM1530 in Elmhurst, Illinois for just over a year. Sue is the founder and show host. With the growing cohort of seniors and baby boomers she felt the need to expand Aging Info Radio to a much larger broadcasting venue. As of January 2012 Aging Info Radio started broadcasting Sunday 9am on AM560 The Answer-WINDs. Aging Info Radio streams live at http://www.AgingInfRadio.com
