Keith Roberts

Community Relations Director
The Cottages of Lacey

When someone asks, “Why do you do this kind of work?” I honestly couldn’t picture myself doing anything else. I have always been very passionate about healthcare my whole life and I have always known that I would be working in an industry that is in the business of helping people. Coming from the geriatric psychiatric world, I have fallen in love with people who are living with dementia. After watching my grandfather decline rapidly to end of life, I have made it my life goal to work with seniors and to come from a place of love, compassion, integrity, and empathy while doing so… (Read More)

Community Relations Director
Snohomish County

I have worked in the Healthcare industry for the past 24 years. Originally from Idaho, I moved to Washington State in 1990 and have remained in this area because I enjoy the Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer outdoors with the 4 seasons. I began my career as a Certified Recreational Therapist in both Rehab and Psychiatric settings but soon discovered that my niche is actually working with the Senior population. In 2002 accepted my first position in Sales and Marketing, where I gained a lot of experience working in Skilled Nursing, Assisted Living, and Adult Family home settings. I have remained in the Sales role ever since, as I enjoy offering the support and guidance needed as people make life-changing decisions… (Read More)

I meet some of the most amazing individuals and their families who are just looking for the best solution to their problems. I can help them… (Read More)

Community Relations Director
Maplewood Gardens

So often I have been told by resident’s families: “I could never do your job!” but I can’t see myself doing anything else! I moved to Idaho from Montana in 1993 and my first job was working at a nursing facility as a NAC. Many times, I would go to the social worker when our residents or their families had needs or questions that I could not help with. During my time working there I decided I wanted to have the knowledge and help others the way he was able to. I enrolled in the local college, got my Associates then my bachelors and then my masters in 2001. I have worked in a variety of settings from schools to mental health to community advocacy and made full circle back to working with the elderly…. (Read More)

Tracy Helling

Community Relations Director

I started my career fresh out of college, working with troubled and abused children. After seven very fulfilling years in that field, I resigned and spent the next years raising our three sons. In 2007, I began a seven year friendship with an elderly neighbor, George. He and his wife had been our neighbors, and when she died, he was bereft. I decided I wanted to be an encouragement to him. On a weekly basis for seven years, we spent time together. During the course of this extraordinary friendship, I realized his lack of knowledge of community resources had caused him to leave his home of 35 years prematurely, and move into assisted living. I thought I would like to find a job working with other seniors and give them companionship and help so that they could stay in their homes longer, preserving both their independence and their nest eggs…. (Read More)

April J. Berube

Community Relations Director
Edgewood and Renton

Ever since I was a child, I remember growing up in a loving, caring, and compassionate senior care environment. My mother owned an adult family home, where I grew up to learn to respect, help, and love our residents while making sure they were able to keep their dignity. Our residents became like a family to me which has translated into me being very passionate to help people and to make a difference in this world. My passion with senior care comes from the way I raised and the importance on advocating for people who have no voice…. (Read More)

Beyond receiving the rewarding feeling that comes with working with the elderly, there is also a great sense of joy and encouragement. Every encounter is an adventure and a glimpse into the past! I adore listening to the love stories, all the accomplishments and sometimes tragedy but there is always perseverance. Each family brings something unique and I consider it a privilege to be able to serve the ones I meet at such a time in their lives.

Working with seniors is my life’s passion. It started when I was a student and would go with my school to the local nursing homes and sing for the residents. That introduction to the world of senior care made me want to learn more about our greatest teachers: our seniors.

At 14, I earned my first job in the world of senior care as a certified nursing assistant at a local nursing home. I continued my education, adding certifications as an activity director and dementia practitioner.(Read More)
