How do you create outstanding care for the elderly? “By listening, feeling their pain, and empathizing with one person at a time.” That has been the philosophy of Dr. Veena Alfred for more than 30 years. After earning her Ph.D. from the University of Rajasthan in Jaipur, India, Alfred immigrated to the United States with an inherent desire to help people. Starting with nothing, she founded and continues to manage an Eldercare Program that includes 10 boutique homes and currently serves more than 130 families in Montgomery County. She accomplished this by adhering to her deeply held values of love and respect for elders. Her version of care is rooted in childhood memories of her grandparents and the lifelong family bonds she forged with them.
