Before I was invited to become a Board Member on the North Shore Elder Services, I was not aware of this great organization that plays such an enormous and necessary part in the lives of so many seniors and disabled persons in our community.
If I had known about the services that are available through this organization my mother could have remained in her home and not been in a nursing home.
the best advice that I could give to families that face caring for a loved one is call the North Shore Elders Service and get professional options and advice.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to let everyone know about this service as most will have need of it in the future

I work as a Client Service Manager for a Private Home Care Agency, but I also volunteer as an Ombudsman (Patient Advocate for Nursing Homes) through NSES. I have found all the staff to be the most professional, caring and truly helpful and respectful people in the area. They all seem to have the passion and compassion, like myself to help the elderly live fulfilling lives in the community. I would recommend them to anyone who needs some assistance with navigating the home care system of today.

Where would my mom be without the services North Shore Elders provides ? Although she lives with us I still work full time and my husband can help with a lot but there still is a void in her needs . NSE provides her with a wonderful care taker three times a week . She showers her ,makes her lunch and helps her with light house hold things she can no longer do . However most importantly she is her friend and shares her ability to provide company for my mom . NSE has a group of compassionate ,caring and selfless workers in all levels of care . The social workers ,nurses ,evaluators and care takers are all there for the client ,not for themselves . I feel they have a calling to there career ,it is not just a job! My mom would not be as functional and happy as she is without this wonderful group and I am very grateful we have such services for our elerly community . Thanks

I am an elder law attorney and I also volunteer in the North Shore Elder Services' Money Management program. I see first-hand how this organization positively impacts the community overall and provides tremendous services to seniors.

I support elders with money management services. Doing this was new to me, and I found the NSES staff to be very helpful in getting me started.

The elders I work with really seem to value the service.

NSES provides exceptional services for seniors and their families on the North Shore. Speaking as the LGBT Community Liaison for the City of Salem, I am so proud of the work NSES does in supporting the senior LGBT community on the North Shore through their monthly 'Over the Rainbow Dinner Club Coalition' at the House of the Seven Gables. This segment of the North Shore's senior population often faces increased discrimination among their generation which is far less excepting when compared to subsequent generations, thus enhancing the importance of NSES' work in this respect.

I have been involved with a support group at the NSES for almost 2 years now, and it has helped me so much in coming to terms with my husband's disability. I have learned how to navigate through the medical system by sharing experiences of others with the same challenges. The group facilitator is a wealth of knowledge, is caring and compassionate, and does a great job of making sure everyone gets heard. I don't know how I would otherwise get the support that is so important to me in this difficult time.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

No changes necessary.

As a social work educator and advocate for elder services, I have come to place a high value on the professional services offered by NSES. In particular, NSES (as demonstrated by their user-friendly web site) is a leader providing our region with much needed resource information that is up-to-date and comprehensive. Caregivers shoulder complex and stressful burdens, but with the guidance of the specialists at NSES, caregivers are able to find much needed reassurance and professional support.

Truly outstanding organization serving the needs of both elders and caregivers. A passionate dedicated staff inspiring scores of spirited volunteers in a humbling effort to provide a vast array of senior care and support. The kind of leadership that thinks 'out of the box' with programs like 'The Longevity Connection' and an architecture that encourages innovative partners. No aging issue too big or too small for NSES to address. A fearless approach to the well being of seniors. The kind of non profit all should aspire to.
