Hometown: Fairfax, Virginia, now Amissville VA
Title: Executive Director LPN, LALA
What community/communities do you serve: Fox Trail Senior Living at Stephens City, VA. Additionally, I provide support to the teams in our Front Royal, Manassas and Orange communities with nursing oversight.
Favorite part about working for Fox Trail Senior Living: I enjoy being able to care for our residents each day, and care for their families and our teams that provide care. Fox Trail Senior Living allows us to live and breathe while “making a difference.” As a team, we do that each and every day. Every moment is memorable, and we work to make every moment count for our residents.
Favorite memory while working at Fox Trail Senior Living: I love watching each community become more than a structure, but become a living, breathing home for us those that we are privileged enough to care for. Fox Trail Senior Living has provided the tools and the environment to allow for our residents to flourish. Our team recognizes each resident as their own relevant and unique individual. We are all about providing personal care and this creates an environment in which we can create favorite memories everyday!
Favorite dessert: Carrot cake, but chocolate ice cream is a very close second.
What’s a fun fact about you: I am ambidextrous and have a photographic memory. I also write poems, and have even had one published!
When we met with the personnel at Memory Care in Paramus, we couldn't believe how homey and clean it was. We were so excited that my father was going to go and be a resident there. They have home cooked meals, they do activities with the residents, they involve the family in activities also. Plus, the cost per month is substantially lower than other facilities in the area almost by half. In the end, however, my father couldn't stay there as he needed more advanced care in a more traditional secured nursing home as his dementia has become more advanced. We were very disappointed that he had to leave Memory Care. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a place for their loved one. However, if your loved one needs more care, an aid costs extra to go with them to Memory Care. Memory Care is a good place for residents that aren't considered a "security threat" and are pretty docile, which my father wasn't. It wasn't enough to cover my father's care and needs.
