Care Planning Institute was founded by Mark and Kristy Dunning. Mark and Kristy each have a Bachelor Degree of Science in Public Health from Brigham Young University (BYU) with minors in Gerontology and Sociology. Mark also has a Master’s of Public Administration (MPA) from BYU’s Marriott Business School. Both Mark and Kristy are Certified Senior Care Managers and are members of the American Geriatrics Society and Gerontology Society of America.

In 2005, after working in the Fortune 500 Corporate Healthcare world in various sales and operations management roles, Mark and Kristy decided they would like to own their own business in the growing senior care industry. Mark and Kristy created and launched their own successful home care agency dedicated to helping seniors stay at home (or chosen place of residence) in their local community of Irvine, Southern California.

In August 2013, Mark and Kristy founded Care Planning Institute with a sole purpose of providing education and consulting to seniors about their senior care options and finding the funds to pay for them. The mission of Care Planning Institute is to give seniors (and their family members) the knowledge they need to make informed choices about their care that will allow them to live as independently as possible for as long as possible – within their budget.

“Thanks for stopping by and visiting our website. At 41 years old, I have seen the need for senior care services with my own grandparents and know that my parents have already told me that when the time comes, they want to remain at home rather than going to a nursing home.

I have seen first-hand how quality care services can allow seniors to remain independent for as long as possible and we are committed to providing non-medical care services to seniors across all of North America. Feel free to call us anytime to discuss your family member’s care needs!”
