Clara Maass Medical Center Provides Mobile Wellness Care for Seniors

As the founder and managing director of Epic Wealth Management in Tinton Falls, New Jersey, Robert Gill advises clients on how to grow their assets with minimal risk. Robert Gill also gives back to the community by serving on the board of trustees of the foundation for Clara Maass Medical Center in Belleville, New Jersey.

The hospital offers an innovative service for senior citizens: the Wellness Assessment Van for Elders (WAVE). WAVE performs free annual wellness checks to organizations that serve seniors, such as community centers and governmental facilities. Persons with Medicare or Medicare Advantage can receive visits annually. No referrals from doctors or insurance pre-approvals are necessary.

Intended to prolong seniors’ quality of life, WAVE emphasizes preventive care. A typical visit includes a check of vital signs and an interview regarding various health factors, plus other activities, such as screening for sound memory, respiratory capacity, circulation, depression, and more.

Robert Gill’s Views on Leadership and Motivation

Robert Gill, the managing director of Epic Wealth Management in Tinton Falls, New Jersey, believes in having a strong team to serve the firm’s clients. In a recent panel discussion, Robert Gill described his process for motivating financial professionals.

Gill cited as inspirational leaders the family of Bob Hurley, Sr., a legendary high school basketball coach in New Jersey, whose sons Bobby Jr. and Danny were great basketball players in high school and then went on to successful careers playing and coaching in the NBA and the NCAA, respectively. The family’s experience demonstrated the value of teamwork and effort, values reflected in Gill’s training philosophy.

He makes certain that each person he works with understands the necessity of hard work and a passion for professionalism and that success does not arrive overnight. Gill looks for the kind of people who dream of great success. Not every person has this desire, nor can they be made to have it. But some people do find their way to it, and they succeed.
