Our Founder, Debbie, Had the Gift of Poetry

Debra Levy (1953-2012) served the elderly and disabled for over 30 years, founding Debra Levy Eldercare Associates in 1988 as one of the area’s longest-practicing Geriatric Care Managers. Her journey began as a solo practitioner, gradually building her practice with “head and heart,” blending expertise with compassion. 

She held degrees in Psychology (Magna Cum Laude), Social Work, and Aging from the University of Maryland and was certified by the National Academy of Geriatric Care Managers. In 2011, she received the Adele Elkind Award for her extraordinary contributions to geriatric care management.

She had a passion for painting and poetry and every holiday season she would write a poem which was shared with our clients, their families and the staff. Debbie’s legacy lives on through her poems and the work of Aging Well Eldercare. We are pleased to present them to you.
