Our staff of professionals is trained in everything from the latest medical care and therapies to healthy and delicious meal preparation. Yet we make room for compassionate connections with residents to take precedence over the necessities of our job descriptions.
We are skilled professionals, yes. And we are here to connect with you in the spontaneous moments that make your life (and ours) more meaningful.
Executive Director: Carrie Velliquette
Carrie holds a Bachelor's in Communication from The Ohio State University, is a Certified Dementia Practitioner and Trainer and a Level 2 ServSafe Manager. She has served as an Executive Director for 14 years, including traveling management of multiple communities, company-wide Certified Dementia Practitioner training and has opened three new construction communities.
Carrie believes in being fully present and available for her residents, families and team members. "I love being a true support in the good times and hard times that come in everyone's lives. I once had a gentleman who was struggling with his wife's dementia. There were some family dynamics that had him struggling to communicate the help he needed. I worked with him to ensure he was getting the personal support, respect and compassion he needed, while his wife was getting the best care possible. We built a bond I will never forget. This is the kind of role I believe we are here to serve in making seniors' lives, and their families' lives, better."
Community Relations Director: Tess Muhlberg
Tess holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology and is a Certified Dementia Practitioner. She began her career working with children and families and has always wanted to focus her energy on helping people.
"One of my most memorable experiences working with seniors and families included two adult daughters who were concerned about their parents' safety at home. They finally convinced their parents to tour our community, but that morning called crying, frustrated and worried. By the end of the tour, their parents called this their home and were ready to move in. There were a lot of happy tears this time, and the couple became some of our most engaged, happy residents. I get to meet some amazing people and share in their interesting, heartwarming stories." Tess has an 18-month old daughter, an eight-year old rescue pup and has been married for 10 years.
