My education is in long-term care and senior housing but
it wasn’t until my grandmother was diagnosed with dementia that I knew I wanted to work with residents in a Memory Care setting.
Grandma introduced me to butterflies in her flower gardens when I was a child and they immediately became my favorite. Six months before she passed away, I decided to bring her a live monarch butterfly in a mason jar that I had caught in the backyard. I went over to visit her at her home and what I thought was going to be the usual visit became one of the greatest memories of my life. I placed the butterfly in the jar on the table in front of her.
She stared at it for a moment and then looked up at me and said, “You’re Allison”. She hadn’t remembered who I was for over 5 years until this very moment.
I work in Memory Care because I want to help families and residents reconnect in ways they may have thought weren’t possible, just like the butterfly who helped me reconnect with my grandmother once more.
Providing understanding and support to families as they are navigating the important decision of placement into a memory care is a great honor. My desire each day is to simplify this process and offer solutions.
The stories our residents share always amaze me and remind me of what fantastic lives they’ve lived. At the end of the day this is what makes my heart smile.
