About Ripple Life Care Planning

Ripple Life Care Planning was founded in 2014 by Shanna Huber. In a career spanning decades of work in skilled nursing, Shanna encountered a deep need for support care for aging patients and support systems for their families. Her heart went out to her older patients who couldn’t return home from the hospital due to lack of such support. And she empathized with the difficult struggle faced by families who had moved away, or were working full time, and just didn’t feel safe caring for aging parents. The dilemmas of navigating health care systems sometimes left the older adult at high risk, and sometimes resulted in their premature placement in a facility. It often led to “boomerang” repeated hospitalizations, due to the lack of understanding of home instructions or ongoing support. Shanna launched Ripple Life Care Planning to offer case management services that skillfully address all these needs. She assembled a team of other health professionals with a passion for helping seniors, and Ripple Life Care Planning began delivering compassionate life care management for aging adults.
