Polk Elder Care Guide

Jaya Koovackal

Polk Elder Care Guide

Jaya is delighted and blessed to work alongside Liz Craven of ProAd Media with the Polk ElderCare Senior Resource Guide, now available in Spanish and with enhanced features online! For 25 years, it has lead people to great resources, giving them the tools and education necessary to make quality choices about senior living and care and making that information gathering process easier and less stressful for Polk families. The Polk ElderCare Guide continues to be an invaluable tool for wading through the maze of elder care options and resources in Polk County!

Jaya is also a registered pharmacist. She received her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Florida A&M University in 2011 and continues to work as a pharmacist for Lakeland Regional Health. She enjoys being a patient advocate and resolving medication-related issues. She emphasizes lifestyle modifications like diet and exercise and then only judicious use of medications.

In her spare time, Jaya enjoys spending quality time with family and friends, playing volleyball, and loving on her fur babies!

While she may wear several hats in the community, she desires to do God’s will and her passion remains the same at all times: to serve and encourage others in Jesus Christ and spread His light and love!

Jaya is honored to serve a second term on the BLFS board as Treasurer and is excited about being a resource and serving the senior community!
