Our Leadership Team
Throughout my 16 year career in Independent Senior Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care, I have discovered the greatest passion and compassion for our country’s richest history. It is such a pleasure to be surrounded by individuals who show such a zest for life and who live each moment to the fullest.
It is our desire here at Platinum Living Services to be inspirational and dedicated to each of our residents and encourage them to live life to the fullest. We pride ourselves on excellent resident care and our compassionate team members.
I see firsthand how quickly our new residents realize that our communities environments allow for families to feel at ease and residents to feel secure while having the ability to thrive. Our residents find that their lives change significantly when their activities of daily living needs are met. It is an exciting time when our residents start meeting new friends, building new relationships, discovering new hobbies and attending new social functions that they didn’t realize they would enjoy.
It is so fulfilling to know that every day I have the opportunity to touch someone’s life. There is nothing better than being in an environment where I am surrounded by our amazing residents and dedicated team members. You can feel it in the air from the minute you walk into our communities, they feel like home.
We are so thankful for the opportunity to touch those lives that need us the most. We will continue to do our best and create environments that allow our residents to live life to the fullest.
