More About Shawn
Shawn Barnes considers himself blessed when he is able to help others. Since 2011, Shawn has assisted 100’s of Alabama families discover and engage the senior care resources that best match their medical needs, social and geographic preferences and financial resources. Shawn has weathered the difficulty of working care plans and obtaining benefits for his own loved one.
A Certified Senior Advisor and experienced home health and hospice consultant; Shawn learned firsthand the difficulties of navigating the acute and post-acute healthcare system through his father’s diagnosis, battle and death from Multiple Myeloma. Consecutive sleepless nights further confused the already bewildering barrage of invoices, co-pays and orders. Bedside for his father’s death in 2013, Shawn was overcome with gratitude for the experience. This awareness serves as a template for how Shawn approaches others who are in crisis with empathy, understanding and kindness. Shawn and his wife count three beautiful, healthy children, ages 22, 20 and 15 among their many blessings. He is a past Board member for the Alabama Interfaith Coalition on Aging and past Board Vice President for Family Promise, a faith-based initiative to serve homeless families. Shawn serves his City, his Church, Scout Troop 53 and the local school and parks system as a volunteer. Shawn Barnes partnered with Seniorly in 2020.
