Start Date with AutumnGrove: February 2014
Favorite Part About Working for AutumnGrove: Being able to do what I love to do and have interaction with the residents.
Favorite Activity For Residents: Bingo
What Got You Into Caring for Alzheimer’s Seniors: I had cared for both my parents before they passed, but I didn’t have any formal work experience in the industry. Before I applied for Nursing School I decided to get some experience as a CNA first. I did this and began working in an AL/MC unit. I fell in love with my residents. I felt I had found my nitch and continued in geriatrics after getting my nursing license.
Favorite Moment of Joy with a Resident: I love it when any resident makes that smooth transition and you see them starting to relax and trust you and understand that you care for them.
How Long Have You Worked in the Assisted Living Industry: 5 years
