If I could choose a second career I would be a gardener. I am passionate about the nurturing benefit nature provides for all of us, at any age. When choosing a name for our business, I wanted to encourage others with themes of sustenance, strength, and growth. An Orchard, to me, symbolizes abundance and prosperity.
Some say if you dream of an orchard it is a sign your productivity has paid off in life and is a reminder to be fruitful in all we do. It was my grandmother’s diagnosis of dementia that inspired my family to open our first personal care home over 10 years ago. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to learn about my business from the true experts including my grandmother, the many residents, families, and staff with whom I have worked. Sincerely, they sustain, strengthen, and grow my desire to learn more. I have a hand in every part of the operations of our buildings including environmental design, regulatory requirements, administration, operations, staff development, and even hands on care. My favorite part of the job is encouraging and spending time with the staff, residents and families we serve. I hope you will choose to be a part of our Orchard F-A-M-I-L-Y mission and vision.
