Our story began over 32 years ago when Debra Levy (Debbie) founded Debra Levy Eldercare Associates (DLEA). Debbie was a pioneer and an exceptional leader in the field of geriatric care management and dedicated her career of over 30 years to serving the needs of aging adults and individuals with disabilities. In July 2012, Debbie was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of cancer. Our staff rallied to provide emotional and care management support to Debbie and her family, while they also continued to meet the care needs of our many clients. Our long time Director of Care Management, Susy Murphy, led the staff and Debbie’s family through this very challenging time and continued to do so after Debbie’s death 3 months later. Inspired by Debbie’s professional knowledge, creativity, and generous spirit, we remain determined to continue her mission of helping the aging adults of our community.
As the owner of DLEA, Susy is very proud that our team has successfully navigated this transition, and will continue DLEA’s quarter century tradition of personalized and comprehensive care management in the greater Washington, DC area. Since assuming ownership of the company, our staff has grown and we now offer additional services to our clientele, including our Debbie’s Angels and WellSenior programs.
