My sister and I had the very good fortune to learn of Jeri Stubblefield’s services relatively early in the
course of my sister’s chronic illness. In our occasional meetings with Jeri over the years, she has been
a trustworthy partner for helping us to address my sister’s changing needs.
With a perspective based on experience and caring, Jeri has not only been able to tell us when we’re on the right track with my sister’s care, but also to alert us of potential pitfalls to be aware of in our planning. She has also provided us with information about important community resources that we might not have learned about on our own.
The caregiver’s role is sometimes a lonely one. But during my sister’s recent health crisis, Jeri was my port in a storm. Thanks to Jeri, I had someone to help me navigate a fast-moving, confusing, and at times frightening situation. I knew I could call her at any hour—and I did. In turn, Jeri was able to lend clarity, offer reassurance, and make contacts that were instrumental in a positive outcome for my sister.
I wholeheartedly recommend Jeri Stubblefield and her services to anyone who’s seeking knowledgeable and faithful support in the care of a loved one.
Jeri was referred to us in a time of medical crisis when both my wife and I contracted the Covid-19. We were both hospitalized, then subsequently discharged to the same skilled nursing facility, with Jeri’s help. During this time, our home and lives were in complete disarray.
Jeri became our advocate in dealing with the medical system, our finances, support for our family members and helped us navigate through my recovery. She was instrumental in facilitating a way to bring my wife home when it was clear she was nearing the end of her life and offered expertise in dealing with the palliative care team at the hospital and with the hospice team at our home.
She is the consummate professional and is the most kind, knowledgeable, and compassionate person we could have possibly hoped for in the most chaotic time we ever encountered.
She "had our backs" and can do the same for you.
I am providing this summary of my family’s experience with your Senior Advisor and Geriatric Care Manager services during the past year.
As you know, our family has faced a challenge with my mother’s dementia and my father’s role as sole caregiver. Within the family we faced many questions and uncertainty regarding the best path forwards, in terms of options for living situations and additional support. There was significant disagreement between family members on these questions. The pandemic situation added more complexity to our situation.
Your comprehensive evaluation, which included several in-person visits, close attention to inhome safety, and clear communication of your findings was a tremendous help for us all, particularly for my father. Based on your guidance, my parents have been able to remain at home, living independently, with additional measures taken to ensure safety. As all of their children live at some distance from their home, knowing that you are nearby has been a comfort to us, and we have appreciated your on-going work to provide re-evaluation and support.
In summary, your expertise as a Senior Advisor has been exactly what our family was seeking, and your involvement has had many tangible, positive impacts on my parents’ quality of life. Based on my own professional experience as a primary care physician, I would enthusiastically endorse your continued career growth in this area, and provide my highest recommendation.

We liked Jeri from the moment she came into our home. She was professional and knowledgeable, and we knew she had my parents’ best interests at heart. Her comprehensive evaluation was essential to help my mother’s doctor understand the seriousness of her needs. Jeri also assisted with finding the right in-home health caregiver to provide support and respite care for mom so that I could work without feeling guilty. We couldn’t have done it without her. Thank you, Jeri.

Thank you for all of the support you have provided Sue and me. I appreciate your help through each of the steps in Sue’s stay in the rest home, as well as the effort you have put in since her passing to supervise the house preparation for sale, and then having Ruthie complete the sale of the home. Over and over you have stepped in and saved me in the fallout from Sue’s decline. You really have done a great service for me and my family. We are fortunate for having you know what needed to be done for Sue’s care, and then directing whatever needed to be done after her passing. Thank you for all you have done to smooth over this entire experience.Thank you so very much.
Having you as a resource for Margery’s care lends a whole lot of support to me personally. It’s worth its weight in gold.
Hiring you was the best decision I’ve made in a very long time. Thank you, [Jeri], for all of your support.
Jeri is very understanding, compassionate and willing to give firm suggestions without insisting on her opinion. Her ego is pretty healthy. Jeri [does] this work purely out of passion.
It has been my privilege to have known you a.s the office manager, advisor and enabler for Dr. Michael Stubblefield for many years.
You are among a select group of care givers with a sincere desire to help people with intelligence, wit and knowledge. You helped me when I was desperately in need of help and didn’t know it was available.
Many thanks for all your dedication and endless hours of hard work.

With your fundamental knowledge, keen intelligence and a sense of humor there is no way your endeavor can fail.
I was delighted when I read of your expansion into elder care management as it is a field that is presently under-served yet the need for this service is growing rapidly. You will be a perfect partner for concerned families of those needing assistance in their daily lives. Whether the families are living in another area or are having to continue their career or perhaps they are feeling too inexperienced in making well informed decisions for their loved one, you and your service can relieve them of the stress associated with the care of an elder I well remember the kindness you showed when it was time to bring my husband home from a skilled nursing facility. I had assumed I would need to arrange for rental of a hospital bed, wheel chair and medical supplies as well as arrange for medical transport. I called to let you know of my decision and the steps I was about to take to. You immediately told me to stop my planning and you made arrangements for a local hospice organization to contact me. I would not have thought to do that and will forever be grateful to you. Additionally, you took the time from your work to come to our home the day the transport took place as you wanted to be sure all had been prepared and was ready for my husband’s arrival. Once more, I thank you.

I truly want to Thank You for all your help over the past year! When my Mother’s health began to fail precipitously, Dad and I were in a really bad spot. Your advice and information concerning Home Hospice Care sources was immensely helpful – Heaven Sent, in fact!
With your help we were given access to highly experienced and compassionate health care professionals trained to assist in all home hospice assistance needs and end-of-life medical care. It allowed my Mother to pass away peacefully and with dignity in the comfort of her own house and in the company of close family.
When my Father developed mobility problems you referred him to a specialist physical therapy clinic that was able to quickly diagnose the source of the problem and prescribe immediate exercise therapies to help him back on the path to safety and continued independence.
I would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone in need of Elderly Care Management services of any kind!
Good Luck and take care for now…
Jeri Stubblefield was very helpful to my mother several years ago. Although I lived in the same town I was unable to be available to deal with all my mother’s needs. Jeri stepped in and helped my mother with many things including managing her bill paying, reminders for medication, making healthier meal choices, assisting with medical appointments as well as being a trusted confidante for a lonely person and a good resource for me. My mother was a particularly difficult case as she suffered from mental health and addiction issues. Jeri was very patient with my mother and always showed compassion and understanding. I would definitely recommend Jeri as a senior care manager.
