Joan is a wonderful asset for elderly people with a variety of needs as they age. She is a terrific team player and I know I can always rely on her help in difficult situations.
Joan Garbow is a true leader in Geriatric Care Management, and has continuously gone above and beyond to be the strongest advocates for families.
As a financial advisor, my clients are faced on a daily basis with critical emotional and monetary decisions involving their aging parents. It gives me great peace to know when I work with Joan Garbow, that my clients will get the absolute highest standard available to them of intelligence, trust and compassion.
“When facing the most difficult situations and decisions concerning my wonderful mother, Joan was always available for guidance. Not only did she thoroughly explain all options available, as well as the possible outcomes, but she also gave me the confidence to make informed, albeit difficult decisions. She was the calm voice who was with my mother when I couldn’t be due to distance. She found loving and dedicated caregivers, helping my mother remain involved in her retirement community activities, while maintaining her dignity right to the end of her life. I will forever be grateful to Joan for the kindness and care she gave to my mother and our family.”
“Joan has proven to be an invaluable resource to my clients. Her education, background and experience place her in a league of her own in the growing field of geriatric care management. Having worked with Joan on many cases over a span of years, I can attest to her professionalism and responsiveness in a wide variety of difficult client circumstances. She is equipped to deal with virtually any situation, and dedicated to the very best interests of her clients.”
“The outstanding quality of Joan’s work has consistently exceeded my expectations. Even more importantly: her work has exceeded the expectations of the families and clients to whom I have recommended her services. As a director in an assisted living company, I come in daily contact with individuals seeking quality residential and clinical care for their parents and other family members. When these families describe a situation with a loved one that is particularly complex, Joan Garbow is the elder care manager I suggest they contact to help define, streamline and resolve their complex care issues."
“Joan Garbow’s experience and expertise have made it possible for my family to better manage the care of my very challenged and beloved brother. She has effectivelyhelped us manage very challenging decisions on sometimes a daily basis. In addition, her coordination of caregivers and medical visits for Pete has been a blessing to us all. I would highly recommend Joan to those needing care management services.”
