Hi! I'm Ellan, a Registered Social Worker and the Founder of Senior Transitions Made Simple. It is my vision to help seniors master later life challenges and maximize elderhood.

Since a very young age I have had a love for seniors. It is hard to put into words, but when it comes to me and seniors, something has always clicked.

I believe seniors deserve a better aging experience - one with a focus on person centred values - striving to put the person first, being inclusive and honouring the individuality, abilities and dignity of each person.

Elderhood isn’t about “treading water”. If you want a third act that allows you to remain in control AND feel good, you can have it. If you want to feel confident, competent and empowered, you can. If you want to feel calm about the later life changes and challenges you are experiencing, you can.

If you want something different, you need to do something different.

We are here to help you learn how.

“Ellan, has been a real driving force behind the Age-Friendly City committee’s success.  If it was not for her perseverance, wide knowledge base about how community organizations and the City operate, and her willingness and ability to share that information with her AFCC colleagues so we could get ahead, we would have been derailed a few times. Her love of seniors is truly, truly remarkable!!!”
Committee Member

“Ellan is consistently pleasant and takes on all assignments with enthusiasm and dedication. She is extremely flexible and has the knowledge and common sense to take on any tasks that are asked of her and complete these tasks successfully. Regardless of deadlines or other pressure, Ellan always delivers. Her superior organizational skills make her the consummate multi-tasker.”


“Ellan’s merging of perspectives, training, knowledge and skill sets allows her to approach her work with a holistic approach to assess the needs of the individuals with whom she works. She has the ability to understand the vast barriers that people face. It is the understanding of these complexities and her ability to help clients develop realistic action plans to meet their goals that serve her well in her work.”
