With more than 25 years of experience in the field of Geriatrics, Marlene spent 12 years as the Director of the Center for Aging, Research and Evaluation at Granada Hills Community Hospital. In addition to the evaluation and treatment of chronic conditions of aging, the center offered education and support groups and formed the basis for “The Memory Club,” a very successful program that continues today.
Marlene participates on many of the ongoing committees that enhance the elder community and support the caregivers. Among these, with Marlene’s special brand of leadership firmly plastered on them, she served as co-chairperson for several consecutive years for the annual Caregiver Wellness Day, which is part of the Greater San Fernando Valley Office of the Alzheimer’s Association and has managed the exhibitor tables at the yearly Los Angeles Alzheimer’s Association “Memory Walk” since 1998. In June of ’06, she was honored for her outstanding community service by the Alzheimer’s Association at their annual volunteer luncheon.
For the past five years, Marlene has been a Senior Housing Consultant with Concepts for Living, LLC, a residential placement service for seniors. With her RN and a Certification in Geriatrics, she lends her clinical expertise, her mild manner and her ingratiating sense of humor to dealing with the seniors and their families who they serve, to making their journey easier because of her keen ear and helping hand.
Since the inception of M.A.P.S. Charities, Inc., Marlene has proudly been a member of the Board of Directors. As with everything she does, she is committed to the population of seniors this organization tirelessly serves.
