Our Story

Located in Melbourne, Florida, Advocates for the Aging, Inc. is your trusted provider of comprehensive eldercare services. Our offerings include assessments, case management, personalized care planning, guidance for finding suitable placements, assistance with benefits and insurance, property management, personal property inventories, home cleanouts, support during living transitions, alternatives to guardianship, and, as a last resort, guardianship to ensure the well-being of the elderly. With over 200 years of combined experience, our team instills confidence in families and individuals seeking assistance. Renowned for our professionalism and attention to detail, each member of our carefully selected team possesses the personal qualities and unwavering dedication required to serve elderly and special needs clients effectively.
The vision of Advocates for the Aging, Inc. took shape several years ago with the passion and commitment of our founder, Danica Scuderi-Carluccio. From the young age of 14, Danica dedicated her time to volunteer work with various senior service agencies in the community. Her deep-rooted passion for elderly care led her to pursue a degree in social work at the esteemed University of West Florida, immersing herself further in the field. Today, Danica’s invaluable experience and unwavering dedication continue to drive our mission of providing exceptional care to the aging population.
Danica’s commitment to excellence led her to pursue advanced training, becoming a certified geriatric case manager, a Nationally Certified Dementia Practitioner, a Florida registered professional guardian, and a national certified guardian. She embarked on her journey in the field in 1994, and her remarkable passion has inspired many others to join our agency, including her husband, CJ, and her parents. Together, their collective dedication has shaped us into the esteemed institution we are today.
As a cohesive unit, we work tirelessly to meet the needs of the elderly. The devotion in our eyes and the unwavering determination expressed by our team are visible testaments to our commitment.
