At the age of 32, she has found that her passion and advocacy has led to phenomenal entrepreneurial success.
In the last 2 years Valerie has been asked to speak all over the country on issues related to long-term care, long-term care insurance, and caregiving. When the federal government decided to offer their own long-term care insurance plan to all federal employees, military, and retirees, Valerie was selected as one of 16 presenters to travel the nation. In the last year alone, she has done over 200 presentations to well over 10,000 consumers nationwide. (www.theltcexpert.com)
She has been a featured guest on many radio programs, and is the Long-Term Care Expert for Assistguide.com. Valerie also authored a monthly column titled, “Your Elder Care Resource”, and has authored three books.
Her latest publication is due out in early October of this year. Her new book is: “AGING ANSWERS: Secrets to Successful Long-Term Care Planning, Caregiving, and Crisis Senior Leisure Links Management”.
VanBooven states, “I wrote the book based on all of the questions and concerns I hear on a daily basis from consumers across the country. People want real-life, down to earth advice on planning ahead for their own long-term care needs. They also want to know the REAL scoop on caring for an aging parent. There needs to be a resource for those AGING ANSWERS!”
You see, Leisure for Senior we’re more like a resort than a retirement community. A resort that you have to be 62 to join, of course. You will have your own private apartment home. You will live as you always have, but you won’t have to deal with stuff like, oh, mowing the lawn, fixing a leaky pipe, or even vacuuming. And here’s the good part—that will free up your time so you can have as much fun as possible. Wildomar Senior Leisure Community is a gated community for seniors of age 55 and better. Located within a beautiful garden setting, Wildomar Senior offers both Independent Living as well as Assisted Living apartments.
There are 140 one-bedroom and 36 two-bedroom units in the Independent Living Community.These independent apartments are 525 sq. ft. for the one-bedroom units and 650 sq. ft for the two bedroom units.

Most units are positioned to enjoy the views of the surrounding valley, night-lights and mountains. Each unit has its own covered carport. Each building cluster has its own laundry room for the residents to use. Extensive walkways connect buildings with parking and garden areas.
