Management Team

Julie Talcoff, MSW, LICSW

Director of Social Services
The Commons employee

After a start in the nursing program, Julie Talcoff earned a bachelor’s degree in human services from Fitchburg State University. After graduation, she worked at Minuteman Senior Services as a case manager and started graduate school to earn a master’s degree in social work at Salem State University. After completing her MSAW, she spent 17 years in both long-term care and a hospital setting. When a social worker at The Commons left, Julie stepped in to help out and found a welcoming team and environment. She happily accepted the permanent position in 2020.

Julie says there are many parts of her job that she finds enjoyable. “I love working with people, especially the elderly population, and I find it rewarding to be able to rehab them and get them back home safely,” she says.

Having been very close to her grandmother growing up, Julie says she “wanted to help her as much as I could.” Now, she says, “I enjoy working with The Commons' team, the residents, and their families. I love working with the senior population.”
