Marcia Mittelman Meer Apartments

Marcia Mittelman, MA
LNHA Administrator

mmittelman@jslmi.org

I have been an administrator in senior communities for the past 30 years. During my career, I served as Director of Education for the Alzheimer’s Association – Greater Michigan Chapter and lectured at conferences and universities.  My passion for older adults began at the young age of 16 and that love for older adults continues to this day.  My team and I take great pride in providing a warm and caring home-like environment for our residents.

Nancy Kaufman, COS, TCS
Assistant Administrator

nkaufman@jslmi.org

After teaching Special Education in inner-city Baltimore and San Diego, I returned home to Michigan to raise my children before joining the JSL team in 2012.  My position as Assistant Administrator is rewarding and gratifying.  The highlight of my day is meeting with residents and learning about them.  I love the family atmosphere at Meer and feel privileged to be a part of their home.

Jackie Rosender Meer Apartments

Jackie Rosender
Independent Senior Living Consultant

jrosender@jslmi.org

I have enjoyed working at JSL as an Independent Senior Living Consultant for a few years. I have always had a special bond with older adults, and have always liked to help others. Being able to help older adults is a win win for me. Whether I am helping a future resident or current resident, they are both equally important to me. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, watching movies, going on walks, and hanging out with my husband, our twin daughters, and our new puppy.

Leslie Richardson Meer Apartments

Leslie Richardson, LBSW
Resident Service Coordinator

lrichardson@jslmi.org

I received a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Central Michigan University. It was while I was working as the Director of Social Work in a skilled nursing facility that I realized how much I loved working with older adults. My work experience also includes hospice care, home care and community mental health. I volunteered as a support group facilitator and speaker’s bureau member for the Alzheimer’s Association. I joined the JSL family in 2015.

Karen Gales Meer Apartments

Karen Gales
Resident Service Coordinator

kgales@jslmi.org

I am a Master’s level Social Worker with over 10 years of experience specializing in the care of older adults.  In my role as a Resident Services Coordinator at Jewish Senior Life, I work closely with residents and their families to maximize independence and to support those who need a higher level of care.  I facilitate support groups for residents, including a grief and loss support group, and I co-run the weekly Meer radio show.  I help residents and their families navigate the healthcare system and cope with new or worsening diagnoses. I am passionate about working with a geriatric population and have a strong knowledge of community resources to assist them. In my spare time, I love to cook, make dinner parties, walk, watch tv, and spend time with my family.  

Myriam Cohen Meer Apartments

Myriam Cohen
Program Coordinator

mcohen@jslmi.org

Prior to working with older adults, I was an elementary school teacher. Volunteering at Meer was the spark that ignited my interest in pursuing a career working with older adults. I worked part-time as an Activity Assistant at Fleischman Residence and then accepted the full-time Program Coordinator position at Meer. I love working with the residents and providing programs that enhance their quality of life.

I joined Jewish Senior Life in 2014 as the Food Service Manager for Hechtman, transferring to Prentis/Teitel in 2015 and then Meer in 2019.   I have been in Dining Management for more than 30 Years. Growing up on a farm in Hillsdale County, I learned firsthand how using fresh ingredients and having great people to share your day with enhances the dining experience to another level. I feel so honored to be working at Jewish Senior Life and take a lot of pride in delivering great food and training our team to enhance the overall residents’ meals.  Resident satisfaction is my top priority.
