I am the owner of a Private Duty Home Care Agency in Chicago and I have had the pleasure of working with Julie Fohrman for the past 25 years. In my experience, Julie has personified the terms sincerity and professionalism. Julie has a deeply rooted love of Seniors and the utmost in patience while working for them and their families. She has a way of calming volatile situations and dealing with with the most difficult of situations with a serene confidence that I have seldom seen duplicated. In addition, as a business owner, I am amazed at the strong business relationships that she has maintained with previous employers and co-workers and the extensive network of contacts she maintains. In my mind, this speaks volumes about her both as a professional and as a person. I wish that I could bottle what she has and pass it out to all of my employees! Julie is an incredible Gerontologist and would be an excellent representative of your organization and the professionalism which it represents.

I have known Julie Fohrman for over twenty years; her career exemplifies professionalism and class! She is dedicated to her clients and is truly an advocate for Seniors. Julie has over twenty years experience working with the elderly and has assisted clients and family members in finding appropriate housing, finding the right caregiver, escorting clients to physicians or helping clients find new doctors and specialists. I have firsthand experience of her abundance or resources for housing, physician referrals, home health care providers, durable medical equipment, and more. Julie understands the demands of a Geriatric Care Manager and has the compassion to thrive as one. I am honored to know her and am equally confident that she will make a fantastic Care Manager.

I often recommend Julie Fohrman to our Senior Helpers clients and client's families, and I personally hired Julie to consult with my family about my mother. Julie is a trusted advisor.
Jonathan Wishnick, Owner, Senior Helpers of Chicago
Julie was highly recommended to me and to a client of mine as someone who could help a family with organizing the care of elderly parents, the household demands, doctor's appointments, caregivers, etc. She "hit the ground running," and in spite of having other clients with their on-going demands, she was able to find the time to devote to organizing schedules that took everyone's needs into account and create a plan that now works like clock-work. I recommend Julie highly! Not only is she extremely efficient, she has a tremendous passion for her work and genuinely cares about the people she is assisting.

Julie Fohrman was a life saver. My mom and dad were reluctant to hire help and were living on the edge of crisis for a long time. Julie quickly got them the help that they needed, made their home safe and secure, and in the meantime, gave all of our family the peace of mind that we needed. She is extremely professional, was always accessible and was wonderful with our mom and dad. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone who needs any kind of help with a loved one.
In my life I have yet to meet anyone that is so talented at their profession. Many smart people can be trained, but innate personality has to come into play. Your combination is as close to perfect as anyone I know. It seems my Dad's case was out of control from the very first days you were involved with us. Your soft but very tough and direct way and resources were all that made the difference. You really are an Angel!
North Shore Geriatric helped my mom get into a wonderful assisted living community and changed her life! She was isolated, living alone, not socializing and or eating good meals and was resistant to moving for years. Julie Fohrman stepped in and made it all happen! She helped my mom and our family and our relationship... She hand held us each step of the way and made the entire process smooth, comfortable and manageable for all of us. Julie was responsive to our needs, always listened and helped us each step of the way - she was incredible. Our mom calls Julie her angel!
Working with Julie Fohrman of North Shore Geriatric Care Management over the past ten years has been an absolute pleasure! Her dedication and compassion to her clients is clearly exemplified from her thorough follow-ups and responsiveness with her clients. As a private duty home care agency, we have referred our clients to Julie on many occasions and have consistently been impressed with her attention to detail as well as her knowledge of the vast array of health care options available to meet the particular needs of her clients. Anyone who needs the services of a care manager or Gerontologist should meet Julie! We continue to work with Julie and would highly recommend her services to any senior or family member along the North Shore!
