My Story

Marcie Dimenstein, a licensed Clinical Social Worker has provided clinical, management and fund development activities for not-for-profit organizations for over forty years. Her commitment to meeting needs through the service development and administration has brought her into contact with the varied and changing aspects of organizational planning and program development in health, substance abuse, mental health, housing, and vocational and recreational therapies. This has included assisting disenfranchised groups to access housing and jobs, including the development of a consumer run janitorial service, and the development of a Home Health Agency specializing in services for persons with behavioral health disabilities. She has been employed by a local hospice and the Agency on Aging.
Her fund development experience has included successful grant writing, special events, direct mail, and individual solicitation. Public speaking and outreach include television, radio, legislative lobbying and large and small group speaking. She has extensive experience working with nonprofit Boards both in a staff role as Executive Director of two health services organizations and as a board member and officer for community and association boards. She managed statewide and national quality improvement projects for a CMS funded agency.
Her life changed dramatically when her husband was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's and Vascular Dementia. After his death it became her mission to assist Elders and their families to find the joy in their lives when they have become frozen while looking for resources and trying to manage and coordinate care. She started Elder Pathways a Geriatric Care Management and psychotherapy service.
Ms. Dimenstein received her Master’s Degree in Social Work in 1982 from Fordham University. She is licensed as a Clinical Social Worker by the State of Connecticut. She is a trained Support Group leader for the Alzheimer's Association of CT. She has served on the Board of Directors of Interfaith Volunteer Caregiver’s since 2019 and currently the Chair of their board. She was on the Masonicare Advisory Board for Home Health and Hospice.
Personal hopes for IVCG:
I am coming in a long line of chairs who with the Board of Directors, volunteers and staff have made it into the agency that it is; successful, flexible, responsive, and community based. This time “post pandemic” will be a time of assessment for us. We have made it through the crisis (and I think provided wonderful services!), and now we need to see what is needed and how to make everyone whole again.
We know that this past year has been a time of isolation and loneliness for many, but mostly the elderly. For many they lost capacity. With our partners, we need to revisit our roots and look to our future and to provide the lifesaving visits, rides, and community that we have.


Thank you for your interest in IVCG. I look forward to connecting with those who hold a passion for our community and invite you to reach out with your story.
