Owner - Scott Bolthouse, MBA, CSA

"If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?" For Scott, the answer to this question was, "to own an in-home assisted care service for the elderly". Although this is not your typical answer, it is certainly one that is from the heart. A service of this nature would leverage his compassion for the elderly and high personal expectations, as well as build upon his 17 years in the business world. Through much prayer, counsel and research, this inspiration became a the form of Lakeshore Senior Care.

Scott has earned the designation as a Certified Senior Advisor, which gives him a comprehensive background on the issues facing mature adults. As a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA), Scott understands the concerns, health changes, and physical needs that accompany the aging process. Scott received his Bachelor of Science from Ferris State University, and a Master of Business Administration from Indiana Wesleyan University.
