About Sylvia

Sylvia comes to A Place for Mom from an administrative and customer service background in the corporate world. After several years of helping to care for a mother with Alzheimer’s, her father, who was her mother’s primary caretaker, suffered a spinal cord injury that left him partially paralyzed. Both parents required immediate and appropriate settings with unique services for their disabilities, one in an assisted living facility and the other in an equipped home setting with an aide. This personal matter required that Sylvia explore a large variety of services available to families facing such on-going care needs and crisis situations. Sylvia returned to school to transition into a career to become a resource to families who are suffering through the same issues her family faced.

What I'm passionate about:

Volunteer work includes: Sean Casey’s Animal Rescue (SCAR) Brooklyn, NY, Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s, Reaching Out Community Services (a food pantry in Brooklyn, NY). Hobbies include: domestic and foreign travel, enjoying theatre – both off and on Broadway and spending time with animals in the shelter in addition to my own three cats.

A Note From Sylvia

"After struggling through my own personal trials with aging parents’ health and wellbeing, I made it my personal mission to be a resource both to the older person needing a comfortable and appropriate setting to enjoy their remaining years, but also be a guide to families searching for a path to help their loved ones."
