Easing the eldercare maze

About Us
Debbie Reinberg, MAcc


Debbie Reinberg started working in the geriatric field in 1987. As Vice-President at both GeriMed of America  and Cornerstone Health Management, she was responsible for implementing hospital-based geriatric outpatient primary care programs, applying geriatric-friendly furnishings and layout and overseeing a geriatric-oriented staff of nurse practitioners, social workers and physicians.

Understanding the complexities of geriatric care, she brought together a professional team of geriatric care specialists to directly address the needs of older adults and their caregivers. ElderCARE Network, a geriatric care management company, was formed in 1997 to provide assessment, advocacy, referral and coordination of services for older adults and their caregivers. She received the Outstanding Chapter Member Award from the Western Regional Chapter of the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers in 2002.   

Debbie was the Executive Director for the Colorado Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers from 2002 - 2007. She strengthened educational and networking activities across the state, successfully achieved title protection (based on degree) for all social workers in Colorado, reinstated successful biennial state-wide conferences and spearheaded collaborations with other mental health professional groups for legislative efforts.

Debbie first took mediation courses in 2005 through IADR (Institute for Advanced Dispute Resolution) and assisted in curriculum development for IADR’s Healthcare/Eldercare Mediation course.   She volunteers at Jefferson County Mediation and is active in Colorado Bar Association endeavors to increase awareness of and shape the future of elder mediation. ELDEResolutions LLC (www.elderesolutions.com), an elder mediation, facilitation and training company, was formed in 2008 with partner, John Rymers. Debbie is considered a pioneer in the elder mediation/family facilitation field. She is a frequent speaker about elder mediation and teaches courses in Conflict Management for Eldercare Professionals and Elder Mediation for trained mediators. 

Debbie re-established her geriatric care management business, renaming it ELDEResources. In addition to geriatric care management, she acts as a guardian for individuals who are no longer able to make their own decisions. 

Debbie is a frequent speaker to professional groups. Some recent audiences include the Colorado Bar Association Elder Law Committee, the Women'e Estate Planning Council, the Alzheimer's Symposium, as kickoff to the Before the Mourning series and to students at the UCCS Gerontology Certificate program..

Debbie has an undergraduate degree in Sociology with emphasis in Social Psychology from the University of Texas and she received her Business degree (with emphasis on non-profit management and management information systems) from the University of Denver, with a Fellowship from the National Institute of Mental Health. She is interested in neuroscience, studying the implications of “the brain” and mediation and aging.
