Joy Siegel, EdD, MBA, created Joy Siegel Senior Solutions, Inc. to provide solution-oriented services to seniors and their families by assessing and addressing social determinants of health. Direct services are designed to improve quality of life and address such issues as crisis intervention, aging in place, identifying financial resources, home health, housing, and social services. Joy has also worked with healthcare providers and most recently consulted with AgeWell Global, leading a grant-funded pilot designed to reduce Medicare readmissions at Holy Cross Hospital in Ft. Lauderdale.
Joy’s unique approach is based on a combination of her own experience as a caregiver for her mother who had Parkinsons Disease, her academic background and professional work. Her insight, compassion, business acumen, and connectedness in the community provide Joy with the ability to clearly address the overwhelming issues that may arise in the life of an elderly person. Her belief is that with acceptance comes solutions.
Other services provided by Joy Siegel Senior Solutions, Inc. include research and education. Joy has participated in research projects that include exploring quality of life and healthcare systems, loneliness, civic-reengagement, and cultural competency. Her clients include Nova Southeastern University, Case Western Reserve, Jewish Community Services, and Chrysalis Health. Joy has developed an extensive catalogue of continuing education courses for healthcare providers. Her latest courses focus on social determinants of health and partnerships between healthcare systems and community-based organizations.
