Elizabeth Davis has dedicated her professional career to developing services for older adults in NY and NJ. As the Executive Director of Geriatric Services, Inc. (GSI), Elizabeth took over the management of Bright Side Manor (residential healthcare with 50 beds) in Teaneck. She was able to secure funding and will soon open another 62 unit subsidized senior apartment building at 60 Bergen Ave., Teaneck. A just announced grant of $100,000 from TD Bank will complete a commercial kitchen in the facility.
Elizabeth is also overseeing the operation of Portable Assistant Living Services (PALS) bringing personal care, medication management, housekeeping and other services to seniors living in their own apartments. Finally, in 2016 GSI initiated through funding from the Taub Foundation the “Teaneck as a Livable Community” project which will plan for overall livability to meet the needs of an aging population.
Elizabeth Davis is one of the dynamic, nonprofit leaders in Bergen County. She is doing extraordinarily creative and positive programs making hundreds of lives better and modeling programs beneficial to all.
