A Note from Heather:
Each one of us has a story that becomes no less important as we get older. For me, getting to know that story is a gift. Caring for an elderly loved one can be overwhelming and confusing. I like being part of the conversation with families in an era where society as a whole is becoming more aware of what it means to age well. Providing kindness and comfort to people as they age and their families is important work and I feel privileged to have a role in it.
Heather is a Master’s Level Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Certified Care Manager. She’s been a member of the Aging Life Care Association since 2015 and currently serves on the Board for the Mid Atlantic Chapter. As a social worker, she worked primarily with families and children. She has also done extensive volunteering with the elderly. She joined GrayCare in the fall of 2014 and is thrilled to have made the transition to geriatric care and become a member of the GrayCare team. As part of the team, Heather provides clients facing health and other life challenges with assessment, planning, communication, and support services. Integral to GrayCare’s services is tailoring them to clients and their families.
