About Victoria Jones

Victoria Jones has worked in the medical and long-term care field for over twenty years. While earning her BA in economics and political science, she began her career in a hospital as a part-time admitting clerk. After graduation, she became a hospital department head, where she developed an affinity for the senior community. Five years later she started a home-care business, which she and her partner operated until she ventured into long-term care for a national senior living provider. While there, she managed a dementia "neighborhood." Jones also has experience as an eldercare adviser for A Place for Mom, which aids families in finding long-term care solutions. Today Jones and her husband operate MyTime, an adult day-care program, in Osage Beach, Missouri.show more
