Karen Amber, LMSW, ACSW

Role: Geriatric Care Manager

Karen began her career as a social worker with the elderly in 1970 at Borman Hall, a continuum of care facility in Detroit. She received her MSW in 1975 from Wayne State University. As a student, her training took place at Jewish Family Service, Northville State Hospital and an interdisciplinary medical center in Pontiac, Michigan. She has always had a focus on geriatrics.

Karen took 11 years off from working with the elderly to raise her family, and then returned to work as a social worker at the Teitel Jewish Apartments in Oak Park for 9 years.

In 2003, Karen began doing private, in-home counseling and she currently works with ElderCare Solutions of Michigan as a Geriatric Care Manager.
