Advocacy Delivered with Heart
This award is for the professional individual who advocates for seniors in our community through social work, case management or patient advocacy. Congratulations to Elder Care Coordinator Gloria Centonze for winning this award at the "2020 Delivered with Heart Award" ceremony on February 20, 2020.
These are the award nominations from her boss Rep DeLoach and fellow DHC colleagues:
D. "Rep" DeLoach III, Estate Planning and Board Certified Elder Law Attorney
I nominate our elder care coordinator, Gloria Centonze, for this award. As a life care planning attorney, our law firm employs Gloria Centonze to assist our elderly clients and their families with healthcare advocacy. With her 35+ years of experience, Gloria is a tireless advocate for her many clients. She always goes above and beyond with her care advocacy and determination to help our families in difficult times. Her phone is always on, day and night, and she follows our clients through the end, providing hospice advocacy at end of life, social advocacy for placement in the right long-term care facility and more. You can read more about what Gloria has done in some of our great reviews on Google. As an elder law attorney, we want you to know we are making a difference with our clients, and we know that Gloria does that on a daily basis for our elders.
Simone DeLoach, Director of Marketing
Gloria Centonze is passionate, caring and frequently goes above and beyond for our clients. As an experienced social worker, she always keeps the best interests of our clients in mind. She serves as a health care advocate and provides oversight to help ensure the elder receives the care and quality of life they deserve. The clients and their family's love her and often say how lost they would be without her. It is not just a job for her, she sincerely loves helping people and getting them the help, they need. She is truly a jewel in our DeLoach, Hofstra & Cavonis crown. (Simone and Gloria are pictured on "Red Nose Day," a campaign to end child poverty--one of Gloria's favorite charities.)
Monica Case, Injury Law Paralegal
Gloria is always going above and beyond in all aspects of her life. Her heart to help is so big and she never stops serving. She is a tireless advocate for the patients she assists. Her smile lights up the room when she arrives, and her hugs leave them warm when she has to depart.
Tammy Dina, Estate Planning and Elder Law Paralegal
Gloria goes above and beyond to advocate for elders in this community and has been doing so for more than 20 years. We are so lucky to have her on our team and if you read our Google reviews for the firm you will see how many happy clients she has. She has literally saved lives by advocating for good care for our seniors and every day puts 110% into her work. She deserves this award more than anyone I know.
Lorry Feldmeyer, Probate Paralegal
Gloria goes above and beyond anyone I've ever known to help the Elders in our community often assisting during what is supposed to be her vacation, after work hours, on weekends, etc. She is available rain or shine always putting others needs above her own. Gloria has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I've ever met and truly is deserving of this award to recognize her for all she does.
Ashleigh Fisichella, Marketing Coordinator
I have so many wonderful things to say about Gloria so where to start? Gloria has been a tremendous help with our clients whether it be going to care plans, talking them through difficult situations or just being a listening ear when they have no one else. Listening to her on the phone guiding a family member who doesn’t know where to turn for help is remarkable you can hear the concern in her voice as she guides them on what they can do to help their loved one. She is always going the extra mile for our clients which have become her friends and in some cases like family. Gloria is kind and compassionate and we couldn’t ask for a better person to work with every day and to be there for our clients.
Jeri Harig, Litigation Paralegal
Gloria Centonze deserves the Advocacy Delivered with Heart award because the compassion she has for her clients is like no other. She is just a wonderful person inside and out. She goes above and beyond for all her clients.
Best King, Estate Planning and Elder Law Paralegal
Gloria is the Elder Care Coordinator at the Law Offices of DeLoach, Hofstra & Cavonis, P.A., but she does so much more than that. Gloria is there for our clients whenever they need her, and she always makes them feel heard. I am in awe of Gloria's work ethic and how much she cares. Please award Gloria Centonze for the Advocacy Delivered with Heart award, as there is no one more deserving of it.
Judy Matthews, Probate Paralegal
I have had the honor of working with Gloria for more than 10 years. There is no one more deserving of this award. Gloria is all HEART with all of her clients. She does not treat them as “clients” they are family to her. She is available to all of them 24/7, no matter what the problem or concern may be. In the event I would ever need help, whether for myself or a family member, the first call would be to Rep DeLoach, requesting Gloria. She is all heart.
