Erik GansErik Gans: Co-President

I am a Finance and Operations executive with 20 years of experience working in the United States and internationally. I earned my BA from Bowdoin College and MBA from Harvard Business School. My interest in senior care dates back to memories of my elderly grandmother who aged with a zest for life thanks in large part to the devotion of her caregiver. My grandmother was a model for healthy aging at home. I started Home Care Assistance of Fairfield to make a positive difference in the lives of seniors and the families who care for the them.
