Mike Nickel

Mike Nickel has worked his entire adult life in the field of programs and services for older adults. He worked for the Missouri State Unit on Aging from its creation in 1979 until his retirement in January 2006. He spent several years responding to protective service calls from the Elderly Abuse hotline. He then went on into supervision and management and was the Regional Manager for the State’s Division of Senior and Disability Services when he retired.

After leaving the State, Mike did consulting work with Washington University’s Center for Mental Health Services Research on projects dealing with the elderly. While there, he co-authored four articles published in peer reviewed journals.
From there, for several years, he was the Chief Operating Officer for a small
non-profit that provides service for the elderly immigrant/refugee population.

He was most recently employed by the St. Louis County Older Resident Programs (CORP). His initial role with CORP was spearheading the creation of the Access and Functional Needs Registry. He continues to supervise this program and other support services. Mike co-taught a master’s level Gerontology practice class at Washington University’s Brown School over the course of 11 years.
