Originally from the Nashville TN area, I have lived in South Florida for over twenty-five years. I enjoy the amenities, weather and lifestyle in this beautiful state. I have been a life-long advocate for seniors and quality geriatric care that enables loved ones to make the best decisions regarding the care and aging in place as an alternative to nursing home care. This allows the individual as much independence as possible until such time as Hospice care may be desired.
25+yrs Senior Health Care Management | Geriatric Nurse | Elder Care Advocate | Entrepreneur | Aging in Place Specialist
Faced with the responsibilities of taking care of elderly parents requires an understanding of what kind of elder care is needed, where to find it, how to provide it, monitor it and maintain it. Geriatric Care Associates enables loved ones to receive the best at-home care possible.
As Geriatric Care Manager, my focus includes:
• Providing patient advocacy for maintaining client independence
• Providing guidance thru a progression of evaluations to maximize the client's functional abilities
• Monitoring the quality of healthcare and home care that the client receives
• Coordination of the discharge plan from hospital / skilled nursing facility/ home
My passion for senior care stems from the outlook that each day I work in this field I receive the same joy that I would receive from caring for my own grandparents. My work enables me to continue my quest to be an advocate for seniors.
