About Mary J. Hughes, BSW

Mary Hughes has lived, studied, and worked primarily in the Scottsdale, Tempe, and Phoenix area since 1970, and through the years has been an active participant in several Valley charities and nonprofits.

With a Bachelor of Social Work degree from the Arizona State University School of Social Work, a Care Management certificate from the Boston University School of Social Work, and 7 years prior professional experience as a long-term care case manager and rehabilitation discharge planner, Mary is committed to providing high-quality service to the senior community and their adult children.   

As principal of Arizona Senior Transitions LLC for the past 6 years, her individual practice includes geriatric care management, assisted living and memory care referrals, and caregiver support group facilitation.

In her work Mary frequently relies on and refers clients to select colleagues in the community - professionals who comprise a collaborative team of physicians, elder law attorneys, licensed fiduciaries, home care, home health, hospice, and mental health practitioners.  

Her reputation as an effective, compassionate social worker is built on a deep understanding of the needs of older people and the challenges facing their adult children, along with an awareness that, for all of us, our well-being often takes the combined effort of many caring, compassionate people. 

Mary Hughes is a member of the National Association of Social Workers, the American Case Management Association, and the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers, now known as Aging Life Care Association. 

"I have known Ms. Hughes for over thirty years, from the time she was a student in several classes I taught in the School of Social Work at Arizona State University, to the present time. During the years, I have followed her impressive career in both social services and the communications field. For Mary, working with the aged has not just been a job, it's been a vocation, a calling that she takes very seriously.
If I were still her professor and grading her for her work with elders at different levels of service, I would give her an A+."
