After 20 years of caring for families at Pueblo Community Health Center, Dr. Rona Knudsen embraces her role as InnovAge PACE’s Center Medical Director, helping vulnerable older adults in the community. <br />
I spent a lot time interacting with my grandparents and as they got older I found myself caring for them. I was able to take them to doctor’s appointments, administer medications, and met other personal needs. This helped me realize my passion and led to my wonderful career at InnovAge. I enjoy making a positive difference in the lives of the seniors we serve by responding through the lens of my grandparents and my 87-year-old dad.

I saw my mother care for her mother for more than 15 years after a traumatic brain injury, and I watched my father care for his mother as she declined from dementia. They were clearly labors of love – and Herculean labors in their own right. Spending my career at a place that tries to help seniors and families get the help they need is a tremendous honor.

I love the PACE program because not only does it provide comprehensive care but it also addresses the issue of loneliness, allowing our patients to come together, establish relationships, and enjoy each other’s company.

My life’s work is to ease suffering in any form. Being a nurse practitioner helps me do that in a significant way. I enjoy working with older adults.
