Charles de Vilmorin
CEO & Founder
Linked Senior

While at Georgetown University, Charles wrote his thesis on retirement communities: The nursing home institution, a Foucauldian paradigm (2006). Around the same time, his grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer ’s disease and moved to a nursing home. These two experiences helped Charles realize how lonely, bored and secluded many residents of nursing homes and retirement communities were. Linked Senior was created to enhance the quality of the lives of these seniors.

He serves on the board of:
• The Validation Training Institute: The Validation Method is proven method of communication developed by Naomi Feil that helps improve the connection between caregivers and older adults experiencing dementia.
• AMDA: The Society for Post Acute and Long Term Care Medecine.
