Robin and Jeff Dubrow, Owners
Robin and Jeff Dubrow purchased Solutions For Seniors® from its founder (Gayle Horton) when she retired in 2018. Jeff is a native of Atlanta and Robin is from Moline, IL. They live in Cumming and have two boys that keep them busy when they are not focused on running SFS. The Dubrows were driven to get into care management after several experiences with elderly members of their own respective families. “We saw how difficult it is for families to keep up with their own lives while still trying to navigate the complexities of aging parents and grandparents. Families need help and we want to help as many as we can. We want people in our community to be able to age with dignity”.
After working with Gayle for months leading up to her retirement, the company transferred hands to the Dubrows. We still have the same staff of Registered Nurses and a Physician Assistant, and we’ve added three RNs since 2018. The company still provides all of the same services it did in the past under Gayle’s leadership. The Dubrows intend to keep the scope as it is, and continue helping as many families as they can across the metro-Atlanta area.
