Helping individuals and their families navigate through this complex maze and focusing on a positive health model.

Mary Ellen Jacobs has always had a passion for people and caring. This desire blossomed from caring for her fiery grandmother, who would live with her family during her childhood. She realized early on that her dream would be to become a nurse. With her family's support she took that dream head on and graduated from Ocean County College in 1992. Her first job was at Kimball Medical Center in Lakewood where she worked for 9 years with the elderly and their family.

Her specialty was working with families through difficult times, and focusing on the patient needs.
Mrs. Jacobs moved on to many other positions in healthcare where she worked in long term care, critical care, consulting, insurance and the.

It was clear working with these diverse organizations that the same theme would always prevail...who is helping these patients and their families navigate through these complex systems? She would often receive calls from friends and family asking her assistance during difficult times.

Realizing she had some resources, Mrs. Jacobs went out to find specialist in areas which would be able to assist seniors and their families. That was when she discovered the area of Care Management and Graceful Seniors was developed. This organization is dedicated to families and focusing on a positive health model. Mrs. Jacobs is a member of the National Professional Care Management organization, NJ State Nurses Association, and the American Nurses Association. She is currently President and CEO of Graceful Seniors, LLC.
