Our Care Team
We focus on attracting and retaining a strong team of experienced, skilled, and compassionate caregivers who share our passion and mission. Understanding that consistency in care is what builds familiarity with each resident’s needs and wants. This familiarity and personal touch ultimately help to build a true sense of community and deliver a higher overall quality of life for our residents.
We are blessed to have a leading medical practice team serving as our Medical Director, with a dedicated nurse practitioner who consults with our team and spends regular time to become familiar with our residents’ care plans. We also partner with a team of highly respected social workers and Aging Life Care Professionals who can provide additional support as needed. Our licensed nutritionist works with the team to develop customized, healthy and delicious menus for our residents. Finally, through our sister-company, Paragon Home Care, we benefit from having access to high-quality, emergency staffing services; while providing our residents direct discounted access to the personalized care, concierge, transportation and social engagement services they offer.
