Role: Geriatric Care Manager

Ileane Stone, MA

A native Detroiter, Ileane attended Wayne State University and received her BS degree in Education. During this time, she met the love of her life and married him.

Ileane taught 2nd grade at Key School in Oak Park, Michigan until she took time off to raise her family. She continued using her educational talents, tutoring students in her home and substitute teaching. When her children were teenagers, she enrolled in the Gerontology program at the University of Michigan. It was there that she received her Masters degree in Education, 22 years after she earned her Bachelors degree. In addition, she earned her Certification in Gerontology from the Institute of Gerontology at the University of Michigan.

She started working with Adult Well-Being Services, with ex-institutionalized elderly who were living in adult foster care homes. Working at the Butzel Family Center in downtown Detroit, her clients would come to the Center for meals, socialization, counseling and social skills. At this location, Ileane also worked with Detroit East Mental Health.

Ileane and her family relocated to San Diego, California, where they lived for 21 years. While there, she worked as the Director of Social Services in several retirement communities. During this time, she started an Adult Day Care program, directed a volunteer program for the Rancho Bernardo Community and became the Administrator of one of the Hebrew Homes sites. She helped found the Council on Aging, comprised of professionals from various disciplines. Ileane has been recognized for her many years in the field of Gerontology and has spoken about her experiences and work with older adults at conferences around the country.

Getting to Know Ileane:

Ileane’s love for older people grew out of her love for her mother and grandmother. She also enjoys learning about history, listening to stories about the Depression, WWI and WWII. She has learned so much from her clients and continues to “evolve” every day from her experiences.
