Esther C. Kane graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Therapy from Florida International University, Miami.
With a fervent passion for assisting others, Esther has dedicated many years to the role of an Occupational Therapist, specializing in adults with neurological impairments, including stroke, head injury, dementia, and Alzheimer’s.
Her extensive training and experience in Occupational Therapy have equipped her with profound expertise in home safety assessments.
She possesses a deep understanding of the necessary home modifications to ensure the safety of older adults in their residences.
In 1997, Esther authored a CEU (Continuing Education) course titled “Understanding And Treating The Geriatric Patient: An Overview for Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapists.”
This course, published by the National Academy For Continuing Education, received valuable consultations from esteemed Physical Therapy and Speech Language Pathologists.
Over the subsequent years, she penned, published, and sold 12 CEU courses for Occupational Therapists through her own enterprise.
However, as the medical care landscape in the USA underwent significant changes in 2000, Esther pivoted her career towards website design and SEO (search engine optimization).
She founded Eckweb Designs, Inc., specializing in Internet Marketing for small businesses.
Under her guidance, hundreds of small business owners have flourished, optimizing their websites and overall business success.
While she continues to helm Eckweb Designs, Inc., Esther’s zest for life and continuous learning led her to explore new avenues even as she embraced her senior years.
In 2018, she collaborated with her long-time friend, Robin, to launch SeniorSafetyAdvice.com.
This venture aims to equip seniors and caregivers with the essential information and tools for aging gracefully and securely.
Esther’s commitment to senior safety is further evidenced by her certifications.
By 2022, she added another feather to her cap by becoming a certified CARES® Dementia Specialist (C.D.S.).
Always on the lookout for new knowledge, Esther remains excited about leveraging her expertise to benefit seniors and their caregivers, ensuring they receive the best care and guidance possible.
