feel so blessed to be part of this work. And I don’t plan to stop my work anytime soon.

This August, I accepted a promotion with Memory Care America, and I am now the organization’s Chief Operating Officer. I can feel the growth in our communities, and I’m excited to continue helping this company stay ahead of the game when it comes to working with those who are fighting memory loss. This is done by offering community education programs, providing a safe place for caregivers to seek support, and inviting the community to meet with and even dine with our dementia patients and their families. It takes a village to care for someone with memory loss, and at Memory Care America, we can offer that village — and then some.
