Joy Lovinger

In 2000, Joy Lovinger faced a difficult dilemma: continue to take care of her Alzheimer’s-stricken mother in her own home or try to find a facility nearby that could provide the kind of care she knew her mother needed.

After much painstaking research, and some trial and error, she finally found the right care her mother needed. It was a life-changing experience that made her want to do more for others in the same position as she was – and set her on a new career path.

Joy earned her Gerontology Certification from Sonoma State University and has worked as the marketing director for a large assisted living facility in Sonoma County. She became certified in Senior Peer Counseling in 2005 and later a certified RCFE Administrator.

Joy holds a certificate from National Certification for Dementia Care Practitioners (view certificate) and has received training from the Alzheimer’s Association to facilitate support groups. In addition, she has earned a certificate for completing a course in Complementary and Integrative Health. (view certificate). She is a member of the Jewish Community Center’s Friendship Circle Advisory Council and the co-chair of the Petaluma Senior Care Connection Resource Group. In addition, she works closely with Compassionate Senior Solutions, a senior placement agency that services Los Angeles. For six years, Joy served as a member of the Sonoma County Area Aging Advisory Council. A former volunteer at Alzheimer’s Walk, Joy continues to donate to the Walk every year.

Please feel free to call her at 707-292-9998 or email her to discuss how she might be able to help you or your loved one.
