Throughout his early and teenage years, Benjamin was exposed to and began learning about the various issues of aging – illness, mental health, end of life, options in care and healthy aging.
Benjamin graduated from Lake Forest College in May of 2008 with a B.A. in Business. He serves as CEO for The Silver Runner and as the Director of Marketing and Director of Business Development for GCM. In 2009, Benjamin served on the Board of the New Mexico Association for the Continuity of Care. Benjamin also has done extensive work with the Alzheimer’s Association and has acted on several committees.
In 2010, Benjamin started The Silver Runner, a subsidiary of Geriatric Care Management, as a premier transportation service for seniors in New Mexico. His unique model offers each transport with “door-through-door” service, and is provided in a Silver Runner vehicle by extensively trained mobility managers. This service offers transportation not only to doctors’ appointments, prescription pick-ups and errands, but also focuses on quality of life outings and engaging seniors in their community.
