Joy comes to Senior Home Transitions with 25 years’ experience providing and planning care for the aging population. As a Nurse Navigator, Joy opens doors and helps individuals and their families make informed choices for care. Joy made the decision to work in the field of gerontology as a result of being a caregiver for her daughter with a neuromuscular disorder.
Many times over the years, Joy had to be assertive and research what options were available to help keep her daughter integrated in the community. Along with finding options, Joy had to determine if funding sources existed that could make these options available. Joy has worked in hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living and in-home care providing her with an in-depth knowledge of the senior industry.
