John Rios is a care transition coach with the West Central Florida Area Agency on Aging. He joined the organization in February.

In his new position, Rios helps patients transition from unassisted to assisted care. Through various activities and goal-setting, he empowers patients and improves their life outlook and level of accomplishment.

“I enjoy it [this type of work] because it was something I did with my dad,” said Rios.  “Helping someone I don’t know makes me happy and encourages me to continue to change people’s lives.”

Mr. John Rios earned a bachelor of science in public health from the University of South Florida.
