Lynne came to Autumn View Gardens with 36 years’ experience working with senior adults in skilled rehabilitation facilities, assisted living communities and adult day programs. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy from Washington University School of Medicine and then a Masters in Gerontology from Webster University. Lynne’s most valuable learning experience came from caring for her aging parents and their placement in an assisted living community and skilled nursing facility. She gained insight into what families go through when they have to place loved ones in such facilities. Being part of a faith based community provides the foundation for seeing that residents are treated with the care and respect they deserve.
To me, serving seniors is a remarkable blessing! Assisting elders as they transition into a new season of life, patience and understanding are essential. I love our faith-based, grace-based philosophy of dealing with each individual. Providing each family with information for educated decision-making helps them make good choices for their loved ones. As a former private caregiver, activities program coordinator, and senior travel tour guide, I placed an emphasis on making life more joyous for those around me. I am doubly blessed bringing smiles, hugs, kisses (and prayers) to the seniors we help along the path to becoming part of our amazing community.
