Serving as a Licensed Practical Nurse is Sonja Gunter, who began her career working with the senior community in various capacities in Kansas City in 2002.

While working with the senior community and gaining much experience, particularly with senior care and dementia, Sonja has developed a passion for helping the most vulnerable population through her work.
Sonja holds a degree in Healthcare Management from Excelsior College in Albany, NY, and a Certificate of Gerontology from the University of Georgia in Atlanta. Sonja has also proudly authored and published a book titled “The Professional Traits of a Healthcare Leader; A Guide for Women Who Want to Level Up in Healthcare.”
With her combined experience, education, and passion, Senior 911 has become the model home care provider to which other companies want to model themselves.

After 25 years of being a member of teams, leading teams, and often assembling teams, the words above hit extremely close to home for me.
Therefore, when I met Sonja Gunter, I knew something greater than either of us was at work. Our country has a socio-economic tsunami coming in the next 20 years. Families will need resources, guidance, and expertise to navigate the stages of caring for our elderly loved ones. Often children dodge the subject, and then life happens, and families are in reactive mode. Where to go for guidance? “How can we have our mother assessed? What if dad has another stumble?” It happens often; and that, my friends, is how Senior 911 came to be. Your emergency truly is our urgency.
I asked myself, “Honestly, what does a sales leader know about the care of seniors?” Well, one, it takes a selfless leader who has worn the shoes of those who represent our team daily. Two, it takes a strong commitment to invest in the very best people we can attract. Three, and above all, the well-being of your loved one supersedes all.
The commitment starts at the top. Therefore, becoming a partner with Sonja Gunter in Senior 911 was a true blessing. While franchises may offer many resources, what many cannot offer is the experience of having worn all hats across multiple stages of the senior care industry. Her life’s work is her resume. The time is now.
We are about the mission. As many as 80 million seniors are progressing beyond the age of 65 by the year 2040. Provide us the opportunity to earn your trust. May God bless you and your family always.
