As a Social Worker, I've been to several Assisted Living Facilities to visit hospice patients and it's not often I find one I would feel comfortable placing my own family member. The staff had several activities for the residents and I was impressed that all the residents seemed to participate, as much as they were able. The facility was clean and felt very much like a home. I was impressed also by the compassion, even by the volunteers.

The way memory care structure is intended, smaller is better. You will not find a better staff to resident ratio anywhere in this county . The facility is warm and inviting throughout building. The smell is clean it’s upkeep speaks for itself. I was taken back observing families and staff interacting in activity programs on weekends with residents, It truly warmed my heart . This is a constant, a thriving loving community.

The facility design concept is outstanding and limits patient census to about 20. This gives the place a small homey feeling rather than that of a big overbearing institution. Physical condition and cleanliness are maintained at the highest standard. The staff are meticulous with patient handling and dispensing of medications, and patient medical care is overseen by an experienced physician that comes in once a week. The residents have a well planned set of activities to keep them busy, with seasonal changes and decorations for holidays. Family members are encouraged to participate in activities and are always welcomed as visitors. Perhaps the most important thing is the genuine caring attitude of everybody … they have kept my wife heathy and happy, and have become like a second family to me. Thank you all.

"I am so happy to have found this place. We moved our mother here from an assisted living when her memory got too bad. What a difference and in a good way. The staff is so friendly and spend their day interacting with the residents by engaging them in games and activities for hours. The place is new and kept very clean. I really like that it is a smaller facility. Everybody gets personal attention. My mother is more alert and has adjusted extremely well. She has quit talking about going home. Maybe because she feels more at home in this facility."

Kelly started her journey into senior living as an Activities Director. She worked her way up to Business Office Manager, and eventually in Administration. During her career, she has served as a Compliance Manger, Employee Trainer, and Marketing Director, and has opened three memory care communities. You may even see her carrying a paintbrush around Memory Lane Cottage, as she truly immerses herself in all parts of community management. However, the one position that has remained constant, is acting as a bridge between the resident and the family. Kelly states: “So many people are scared about talking about their loved one’s disease. Family members can be embarrassed to talk about the behaviors associated with Alzheimer’s and the family dynamics unique to their situation. They can be reluctant to ask for help, feeling guilty they can no longer provide the care their loved one needs. Over the years, both of my grandmothers lived in communities I managed, and I feel that gives me a unique perspective of ‘sitting on both sides of the desk’. Each resident has a very unique set of challenges associated with their disease progression. I think the wonderful part of Memory Lane Cottage is that with a smaller population, we can truly create a very unique care plan for each individual, which is nearly impossible to do in a larger setting.” Nowadays, you can catch Kelly with one of her therapy dogs or even her parrot, spreading awareness of Alzheimer’s and related disorders. Her favorite quote is: “Alzheimer's Sucks, but Memory Care Doesn’t Have To”
Taylor started volunteering in activities at a Memory Care Community back in 1997. When she graduated in 1999, with a degree in Aging Studies, she was offered a job in Marketing and then opened one of the first Memory Care Communities in the Tampa Bay area. Taylor went on to work a successful career as a Regional Marketing Manager. Her favorite part of her work was training and supporting marketing teams and the connections she made with the FAMILY Caregivers – holding their hands and helping them make some of the biggest decisions they would make as a Caregiver. Taylor has worked on many projects over the years- such as FACES of Alzheimer’s, Co-Chairing The Walk to End Alzheimer’s, and has held many fundraisers to support Alzheimer’s research. She loves to present on Aging Related Issues so that we can all help Caregiver’s better understand the Aging process. Taylor is dedicated to working with individual Caregivers to find out what is going on in their “Caregiver Journey,” and help connect them, so they know they are not alone. Her favorite quote is “Enjoy the Journey.”
I am originally from upstate NY and have spent my entire career in the Executive Director role. My major responsibilities are first and foremost the health and well-being of the residents. I always encourage open, professional communication among family members and staff members. It is my sole responsibility to respond to the needs of the residents, families, and visitors by providing immediate assistance. My number one motto in life is: "LIFE isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...It's learning to DANCE IN THE RAIN!!! ENJOY LIFE
