, Geriatric Care Manager
PO Box 70354
Pasadena, CA 91106

I am a Geriatric Care Manager with a background in Rehabilitation Psychology. My goal is to identify my clients' individual needs and tailor a personalized plan that will maximize their independence and autonomy while ensuring their safety and wellbeing. I specialize in working with overburdened families in need of assistance in coming to a consensus on a plan of care. I also work with people with developmental disabilities who are in need of more intensive services as they age.

I have worked in a wide variety of settings, including Huntington Hospital's Senior Care Network, and I have a broad knowledge of local resources and services.
I have worked in acute care settings, neurogeriatrics, oncology, rehabilitation and geriatric assessment and memory clinics. I am familiar with the issues facing older people with dementia, stroke, chronic illness, neurological and developmental disabilities
