“I never imagined how helping someone make a difficult decision to move into a community could also change my life. This community feels like home. Knowing that we are serving a generation that contributed so much to the world is really special. It is so important to be fully present in my role. My door is always open and I love having visitors in my office, or stopping by a group of card players to say hello. I want to be there to celebrate successes and address concerns, fully immersed in our community. We want our residents and families to have the comfort of knowing their every need will be met.” Meghan lives in Sylvania, OH with her three children, her pride and joy: Avery recently graduated from Kent State University, Peyton just started with Douglas J. Aveda Institute in Ann Arbor, and Finley is a sophomore at Sylvania Northview.

"It's that moment when we match the perfect level of comfort and care to each new resident that is the best. It comes after a lot of listening and empathy, and I love the process. My mother was a polio survivor who went into a wheelchair my senior year in high school. She also had Parkinson's and her life and struggles encouraged me to be a nurturing caregiver."

It was always one of my favorite days when I would come to teach. So when a position for Move-in Coordinator was proposed, I was thrilled and feel blessed for the opportunity. I just love the social aspect of the job, talking, learning and giving to each person." Dawn and her husband, Mike, have been married for 21 years. They have one daughter, Brooke, who is a freshman at Miami of Ohio in Oxford, and three cats, Asia, Miles and Oliver.

I make it a habit of recognizing special days and love to see the joy in our residents’ eyes.” Carol has been married to her husband, Mike, since 1987 and they live just a mile from West Park Place with their dog, Lucy.

“To be able to help somebody in a way that comes naturally for me is a dream come true. I recently showed a resident how to use a webcam to stay in touch with her family and her gratitude was overwhelming. It meant the world to her, the link to her family she had been missing. I never leave a resident’s home without making sure I’ve done all I can for them, and I don’t leave until I have done all I can to satisfy their needs. We all truly love our residents and I am so proud to be a part of this team!” Jon and his significant other have a son who’s 13 and twin, 10-year-old daughters.

I was nervous and he was so kind and reminded me of my husband and the way he would reassure me. To this day, when Don sees me, he breaks out in song with ‘Hello, Debbie, well hello, Debbie!’ I love seeing the residents smile and love to get to know them and their stories. Our residents need to know that we are here for them no matter what and I assure them I will be.” Debbie grew up with the old-fashioned values of honesty and respect and likes to share a lot of time with her mother and brother.
