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