Felice is a Gerontologist, Occupational Therapist, and Certified Aging in Place Specialist. She has received her Masters degree in Gerontology from Northeastern Illinois University and her Bachelors degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of Illinois. The National Association of Home Builders granted her the Certified Aging in Place Specialist.

I am often asked, “How can I keep Mom and Dad safe in their home?” or “What can I do to help my husband or wife keep from getting hurt in our house?”

I’ve worked with older adults in the Chicago-area for more than 30 years and have helped countless seniors improve the safety and comfort of their own homes so they can live there longer. As a registered Occupational Therapist with a Master’s degree in Gerontology and a Certified Aging in Place Specialist with the National Home Builders Association, I am uniquely qualified to address your family member’s needs from every perspective.

In addition to my professional qualifications, I am also a wife, a mother, a mother -in-law, a daughter, a daughter-in-law and a compassionate listener with a wealth of resources to help address your unique situation. I am so happy when I can make an older adult’s living space the safest, most accessible and as barrier-free as possible! This is often a difficult time for many families, but I hope you will reach out so we can talk today about what I can do to help you or your loved one live a safer, more comfortable life at home.
