Judith Johansen

Position:

Organization: none

 

What role does your nominee have in senior care and senior care issues?
Judith retired after 15 years with a federally funded HMO. That began her interest of working with and assisting seniors. She went back to work as a Community Manager with various 55+ apartment complexes. She said, “I have had the pleasure of assisting others anonymously. Now I am a retired senior and I would not want anyone to know that I have been the "mystery fairy"!


Why should this person be nominated
Judith has been instrumental in identifying needy seniors in her area, and reaching out to help them. Recently she identified a woman who was struggling to financially buy food, and functionally unable to easily get out to purchase it. She has arranged a group of people who rotate and bring groceries (and social contact) to this woman on a weekly basis.
