  • Trenton-Ewing, NJ (1888PressRelease) October 28, 2011 - Mary Ann Barbato, B.S.N., L.N.H.A., C.A.L.A., has been named vice president of assisted living for Care Strategies, LLC, a Bordentown-based provider of geriatric and adult health services. The Long Branch, N.J., resident will oversee the administration, staff and operations of the company's assistive services offered on-site at affordable and market-rate senior housing communities.

    Barbato will spearhead the expansion of Care Strategies' on-site services throughout New Jersey, including Monmouth, Burlington and Union counties. Care Strategies is an affiliate of Community Investment Strategies (CIS), Inc., a fully integrated real estate company specializing in the development, construction and management of multi-family housing. CIS' communities include 55+, senior housing and mixed-use redevelopments as well as market-rate and affordable housing.

    "The addition of Mary Ann to the CIS family of services will help us expand upon our mission to address the public housing and health issues impacting seniors and adults with flexible, need-based, quality medical and personal assistance services, in collaboration with family members and personal physicians," said Christiana Foglio, CIS founder and CEO.

    Care Strategies provides a team of competent staff including administrative oversight, certified aides and certified medication technicians who will be on-site to ensure quality care and service delivery to all participants on the program. Designed to meet the physical, psychological and personal needs of seniors and adults, these include health monitoring by a registered nurse; nutrition monitoring and counseling; assistance with tasks of daily living, including personal care; housekeeping and laundry; shopping escorts; activities; coordination of medical appointments; and scheduled transportation.

    "I am so pleased to be a part of Care Strategies' innovative approach to at-home senior care," said Barbato. "The goal here is so simple, yet so novel - to help people, who do not have the financial means to reside in an assisted living facility, remain in their own apartment homes instead of a long-term skilled nursing care facility."

    An industry veteran with more than 25 years in the senior care and assisted living field, Barbato formerly served as administrator of CareOne at Wall, in Wall Township, N.J., and held the positions of director of nursing and regional director of assisted living facilities with the company. She also was a partner and principal consultant with Professional Assisted Living Services LLC; corporate director of quality for Presbyterian Homes of New Jersey Foundation; and administrator/assistant administrator of The Grove Health Care Center.

    A graduate of Monmouth University with a bachelor's of science in nursing, Barbato earned her associate's degree in nursing from Fairleigh Dickinson University. She is a registered nurse, certified assisted living administrator and licensed nursing home administrator.
