About Us

Dr. Rosalyn Roker founded Commanding Your Care, LLC to help seniors, individuals with disabilities, and family caregivers identify quality and affordable needed supports and services to improve their quality of life.

She became passionate about helping seniors and people with disabilities when she was a teenager working in the dining department at a skilled nursing home in South Florida. Her concerns about the well-being of the residents and communication with the health care providers sparked her interest in a career caring for seniors.

But “life happened”, and Dr. Roker’s career plans took a detour and she landed in a law enforcement career that spanned over 24 years. Even while working in law enforcement, Dr. Roker found herself helping seniors and family caregivers in the community navigate non-law enforcement social service issues.

After retiring from her law enforcement career, Dr. Roker returned to graduate school to pursue advanced training in gerontology. She feels that her life’s calling is advocating for seniors and people with disabilities to help them optimize their health and quality of life.

Dr. Roker’s goals are to make caregiving easier and reduce stress for families by being an advocate for their loved ones while helping them navigate the complex healthcare and social services systems.
