Growing up in a small town, I was fortunate to be very near to my grandparents. My grandmother lived with our family, so I spent lots of time with her and her friends regularly. Through the years, I developed a real fondness of the elderly and an appreciation for the challenges of aging. I am proud of the extraordinary care and support we provide our participants.
