New Jersey Aging Care Manager Wendy Sabin
Wendy Sabin is a licensed social worker and an aging care manager. She received her Master’s Degree in Social Work from New York University in 1989. Wendy spent the first years of her career working as a clinical social worker in NYC in the Employee Assistance Program field. There, she began to do short term, solution-focused therapy, working with mental health, substance abuse, family crisis, care giver and other clinical issues. In more recent years, Wendy worked for Jewish Family Services in NJ as a Synagogue Social Worker.
Wendy’s work is focused on crisis intervention, geriatric and care giver issues, parenting/family matters, employment and other personal issues. Wendy developed and ran multiple groups and programs. But one of the main functions of her role over the years was to plan “care giver support groups”. The groups were very effective and necessary when dealing with “sandwich generation adults”. While working at the synagogues, Wendy also worked within two local senior centers in Verona and Caldwell, NJ.
While working in these two NORC (Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities) which were funded by a state grant, Wendy recognized the serious need for professional support services for seniors and their family members who are aging in place. During much of her time with JFS, the focus of her eldercare work was to act as a guide/ advocate for older adults and their families who were struggling with significant, personal issues. Wendy is also a Certified dementia practitioner. She has worked over recent years as a Geriatric Care Manager and at a private home care agency.
In 2013 Wendy Sabin launched Sabin Elder Care Solutions, a private geriatric care management practice based out of Montclair, NJ.
