Starr Ramella NJ Aging Care Manager
Starr Ramella is an aging care manager and a social worker in North Plainfield, NJ. “Growing up, I hadn’t thought about becoming a social worker, but I always knew that I would wind up in a “caring” career. My mom was a nurse and my role model, and she passed along to me her passion for helping others. As a teenager, I enjoyed a very close relationship with my grandparents and shared in the caregiving they needed. Caring for my grandparents helped me realize my soft spot for working with older folks. When I went to college, social work was a natural fit. I haven’t looked back since!”
Starr Ramella has worked in hospitals, long-term care facilities, physical rehabilitation facilities, and assisted living facilities. Because of this varied work experience, and her social work background, geriatric care management was a logical next step in her career. Indeed, Starr has enjoyed being a manager for over 12 years.
“What I love about being a geriatric care manager is seeing the relief on the faces of family members when I explain the different options available to them in caring for their loved one. Being able to hold a hand, give a hug, share tears, and provide reassurance to an elderly person or family member is so rewarding. At the end of the day, it makes me feel good to look back and know that I made a positive difference in someone’s life.”
