With more than a decade of experience working under the Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders and as a geriatric social services professional, Cesar Silverio has found happiness advocating to help elders age in place and in-community. He has collaborated with many local agencies and the Department of Social Services to help more than 500 elders remain where they want to live.
When the pandemic began, Cesar helped seniors access food and other goods during one of the most challenging times. In his previous role as a Director of Business Development, he helped his organization by going out into the field to help grieving seniors. Using protective equipment, he conducted assessments and went to patients’ homes when many social workers could not go out due to state regulations during the pandemic. His passion for elder care has allowed him to continue to provide wellness in the community and beyond.
Here at The Towers, Cesar is a powerful force and uses positive attitudes, empathy, and tireless energy to encourage people around him to succeed. Cesar has a Master of Business and Public Policy and a Bachelor’s in Social Work and Sociology. He specializes in Geriatric Social Services and is responsible for working alongside the Social Services professionals and Resident Services Coordinators at The Towers.
Cesar is inspired daily by his faith. He is a youth pastor with his wife at the Church of the Nazarene in Bridgeport, where they serve with Tip of the Spear Ministry, a youth group of over 60 youngsters.
