Gilberg and staff provide unmatched care, special touch It’s 9 a.m. on Labor Day, a day off for many, but Loren Gilberg is exactly where she wants to be - at the bedside of one of her clients, an 84-year-old gentleman with serious medical issues, who lives in an assisted living facility in Westchester County. It’s not uncommon for Gilberg and her staff to spend time with their patients on other holidays such as Christmas and New Year’s Day. Call it the Gilberg touch. That’s who she is, caring, experienced, knowledgeable, innovative. Her firm delivers extraordinary care on a daily basis. As the founder of Elder Care Consulting Inc. and Elder Care Homecare Inc., Gilberg, together with her renowned staff, helps her senior clients receive outstanding care and maintain their quality of life. “People are living to ripe old ages,” Gilberg said. “We do everything like a daughter would do for her mom, dad or loved ones. We oversee and coordinate home visits, medication management, doctors visits, emergency room and hospital visits, and other needs our clients have on a daily basis. The commitment we make to all of them is extremely significant.” As for Gilberg’s credentials: Where do we start? Gilberg, a registered nurse with more than 20 years of experience in geriatric care, has a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work, a Master’s Degree in Business Administration and is a certified care manager. Her unique and impressive credentials allow her to help clients of Elder Care Consulting and their families navigate the complex world of managed care, medical benefits, homecare services, social service organizations and legal issues. Elder Care Consulting is a professional Geriatric Care Management firm offering seniors and their families a comprehensive range of GCM services with a personal touch. The mission is simple: to help older adults maintain quality of life, independence and dignity.
To complement her vision at Elder Care Consulting, Gilberg founded Elder Care Homecare. There has been a perfect synergy between the two firms, which has led to unmatched attention and care in the Tri-State area. The firm also provides care for clients in Florida, including their snowbird set. Elder Care Homecare provides quality home care services that are individualized to meet clients’ needs and allow them to reside with dignity and comfort in their own home. Elder Care Consulting and Elder Care Homecare also help clients in need find the perfect assisted living facility for them. “To maintain the proper quality of life for seniors, you have to make sure nothing falls through the cracks,” Gilberg said. “You have to be on top of everything and make sure your client has an advocate. Whether our client is at home, or residing in an assisted living facility or short-term rehab, we assist them with all of their needs – from doctor’s visits and all other areas of daily care.” Gilberg is an expert in the field of eldercare. She has been interviewed on Cablevision’s News 12 Westchester and Bloomberg Cable News, and has had articles published in numerous journals, including The Journal News, Senior News, Inside Westchester County, Advance for Nurses, and Town Report. The firm’s clients and their families are what matter most to Gilberg and her staff. Take, for example, an 84-year-old gentleman under their care. He was recently relocated from Florida in poor health, suffering from kidney issues, diabetes, vascular problems and bed sores. His family contacted Elder Care Consulting for help and advice in a desperate situation. The 84-year-old’s health improves daily thanks to Elder Care Consulting extraordinary care. Before the firm intervened, the family felt helpless. Not anymore. That’s the Gilberg touch, special in so many ways, a leader in the field.

Client Testimonials I reached out to you during the most stressful time of life for both my loved ones and myself - horror had occurred to my dear loving mother. My mom had fractured her hip and due to her frail health and advanced age required risky hip replacement surgery. Many issues legal and otherwise arose which I could not personally resolve. You not only resolved each and every one, but you continue to do so now, over 4 years later. You always display extreme sincerity, compassion and friendship, using your vast experience and confidence in your ability, to continually bring satisfaction, positive results and a tremendous sense of relief and comfort to my loved ones and myself. You have gone out of your way to visit Mom on multiple occasions in her Nursing house and we love you for it. As an attorney, friend, and a great man, I could not possibly hope to know anyone more phenomenal. The three greatest men I have ever known are my dear departed father, my dear departed father-in-law and Ely Rosenzveig. – Jeff D. I hired Ely to assist with my parents estate planning and it was a wise decision. He is a true expert in navigating through complex elder care law and procedures. His guidance was invaluable and his communication excellent. I would strongly recommend his services.

Seniors Halloween Children look forward to costume parties, trick-or-treating, and visiting haunted houses. Ah, Halloween is right around the corner. Seniors, however, can celebrate Halloween, too. Here’s how: Pumpkin carving: If you volunteer at a nursing home, working with the Activities department to coordinate an afternoon of pumpkin carving would be a great way to get into the Halloween spirit in the nursing home or assisted living facilities. You could award small prizes to the person who created the most creative and scariest pumpkins. Afterwards, you can decorate the nurses’ stations, the front porch, and the dining room with the carved pumpkins. Decorate: Help your favorite senior decorate their home for Halloween. You can buy Halloween posters and put them on residents’ doors. Write scary stories or draw pictures that can be put up all over the home, showcasing their talents, as well as celebrating the holiday. Dress up: If you work in a nursing home, designate a day in which residents and facility staff can dress up in Halloween costumes. Awards may be given to the worker and resident with the scariest, funniest, and most creative costumes. At home, seniors can dress up and greet trick or treaters. Read a scary story or watch a scary movie: Sometimes nursing homes will have book groups for the residents who live there. Having someone read a horror novel for the month of October is a perfect way to get residents into the Halloween spirit. Watching a scary movie in the activities room is another great way to celebrate the holiday. At home, the grandkids can come over and watch a good Halloween movie.
