About Us
 
Our experience speaks for itself...

Piper Allen MSW, LMSW

Piper was born and raised in Eureka Springs, went to college at the University of Arkansas- Fayetteville, and graduate school in Columbia, Missouri. She attributes her decision to go into social work to her mother. She has been married since 2001 and has two children, ages 7 ½ and 5.

She became interested in working with the aging population when she was in graduate school after noting that no one in her class was focusing on this population. While completing an internship at an adult day health center, she came to love working with this group. The clients that she worked with were welcoming, encouraging and eager to share their stories and needs. Realizing that this was a rapidly growing segment of society whose needs would need to be met, she made this her focus.

She is excited to be joining this venture with her mother, Susan Hopkins, offering her services and experience to the Carroll County community.

Susan Hopkins MSW, LCSW

Susan lives in a rural community in the Ozarks with her spouse, 3 cats, and dog. She raised 2 children there and now has 5 grandchildren. Her mother lives there in an assisted living facility and Susan spends much time with her. She loves the outdoors and her garden. Growing her salad greens and seeing her grandchildren, gives her much joy.

She has loved working and volunteering as a social worker for over 40 years.
