A Crucible Moment: Carol Silver Elliott Meets COVID-19
Susan Ryan is joined by Carol Silver Elliott, president and CEO of Jewish Home Family (JHF), a nonprofit aging services organization located in northern New Jersey.
In this first episode of Elevate Eldercare, Carol’s tenacity and acumen as a leader is evident as she describes how she took a chaotic crisis and applied strategic systems to create real solutions.
She recounts poignant stories and the unique challenges presented by JHF’s close proximity to New York City, the epicenter of the virus at that time.
While her fierce love of elders is obvious, Carol is also transparent about her organization’s harrowing experiences. She describes creative approaches to remaining calm amid a crisis, which were accomplished, in part, by fostering among her staff ingenuity in the face of adversity.
