About Jean

Jean’s professional experience in the senior housing and healthcare world includes, most recently, Community Relations Advisor for A Place for Mom. She worked directly with the senior housing communities, as well as discharge planners in hospitals and skilled nursing facilities to find solutions for their patients. Previously she was a sales director for an international senior living brand on Long Island. Jean is highly regarded by her peers for her extensive knowledge and contacts within the senior services field.

What I'm passionate about:

Our family participates in Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), where we financially support Long Island farmers and receive a weekly share of locally grown produce in return. Our extended family enjoys annual reunions, “The Cousins Club,” where our family gathers in different locations coast to coast.

A Note From Jean

"Assisting my parents in dealing with their senior living needs introduced me to the overwhelmingly vast number of choices available to seniors today. If your family is in-crisis because of a change in health status and you find it challenging to take on the added responsibility of planning and decision-making for those next steps, I am here to help. Perhaps your loved one is struggling with isolation and resulting depression. I will walk you through the process with patience, compassion and the knowledge I have gained over the last 15 years. We’ll use my abundant resources. I am here to help!"

Reviews and Testimonials

Hi Jean,

After 2 months of non-stop anxiety about 24/7 aides for my Mom, we were finally able to get her moved into [name] last Tuesday. She is of course miserable there because she’s not in her own apartment but the revolving door of aides has stopped and we know that she is safe. Along the way we have met some amazing and helpful people who have guided us along and for that I am eternally grateful. We had so much to learn and had no idea where to start, so you can imagine when [name] put me in touch with you how grateful I was to have a helping hand navigate the maze of who, what, when, where and how.

We ultimately survived those 8 weeks with a combination of 2 private aides and two home care agencies. [Name] who was my contact at Home Care has a confidence about her agency and their ability to help quickly that got me through the toughest day. And for the most part she consistently delivered. We threw [name] a few curve balls and she hung in there with us in a most professional and caring way.

I would recommend both agencies and I have written reviews for both agencies on

But I cannot thank you enough for those early days and how you pointed me in all the right directions. Your compassion and knowledge in this area made ALL the difference to me at a very difficult time.

Janet M.
