Brandon Eldershaw, healthy aging wellness coach at CentraState Healthcare System, has been appointed to the New Jersey Caregiver Task Force by Governor Philip D. Murphy.
The Task Force was established in 2018 to identify the characteristics of caregivers and caregiver support services offered in New Jersey while providing recommendations for growth and improvement in these services.
“We are so proud to have Brandon represent CentraState as a member of the New Jersey Caregiver Task Force,” said Kim Simers, assistant vice president of integrative health at CentraState. “Brandon will not only contribute vital education and knowledge, but he will bring a fresh perspective that is necessary to innovate.”
Eldershaw has been an integral part of CentraState since graduating from Rowan University in 2018. Through his role, Eldershaw creates specialized programming and works with local community organizations to help educate and equip seniors with the skills and opportunities to age healthily. He is currently pursuing a graduate degree in wellness and lifestyle management at his alma mater.
“It is truly an honor to represent CentraState and LeadingAge New Jersey/Delaware on the New Jersey Caregiver Task Force,” says Brandon. “There are over 1.06 million caregivers in New Jersey alone, and this Task Force will allow us to better determine what we need to do to support caregivers in our state.”
CentraState offers comprehensive care for seniors, including specialized medical and nursing care, wellness initiatives and three award-winning senior living communities.
