Dorian Maples, Professional Geriatric Care ManagerDorian Maples, Clinical Director
Dorian’s career has been devoted to caring for older adults and persons with disabilities since 1979 when she became a Registered Nurse. Her nursing career took her on a management tract, which led her to obtaining a BA in Management and Communication. In 1996 she became the first Registered Nurse in Indiana to be recognized as a full member of the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers.

In 1996 she created Home Nursing Services, a licensed certified in-home care agency, and in 1997, established First Call Medical Staffing, a provider of supplemental staffing for medical facilities. She identified a need for non-medical in-home care and started Angel Corps in 2001. In 2003, she created Dorian Maples & Associates, Professional Geriatric Care Management, due to the increasing need for older adults and their families to have an advocate in finding their way through our fragmented health care community.

Dorian is passionate about her work and finds great enjoyment in not only being a Registered Nurse, but also in assisting clients to their optimum healthy being by being their liaison, advocate and support system.
