In addition, Special Care Services is a state licensed homemaker companion agency, offering affordable services to seniors who wish to age in place. I am partnered with the Alzheimer’s Foundation of American to provide memory screenings as part of the National Memory Screening initiative. I have over twenty-four years’ experience in the healthcare field; my knowledge and understanding of disease and illness has enabled me to development training programs tailored to the special needs of seniors.
As a Gerontologist I assist individuals and families with age related issues. I carefully assess an individual's needs, develop a comprehensive plan of care and assist with implimenting the care plan to enable seniors to age in place in their own homes and community. I also assist with facility placement when and if the time comes, as well as advocacy on behalf of the individual and family. I have a personal connection with every client, giving “Special Care to Special People”.
I have an Associate’s Degree from SUNY Empire State College, in Child Development and Counseling Studies, a Bachelor’s Degree also from SUNY Empire State College in Human Development with a minor in Developmental Neuropsychology, and I am currently completing a Master of Arts Degree in Gerontology at Nova Southeastern University.
