Memory Care Shakopee, MN
At Shakopee Emerald Crest by Augustana Care, seniors will find thoughtful memory care in an assisted living setting where each individual’s personal preferences are valued. Our assisted living services help residents with tasks like dressing or showering and are tailored to their needs. Through specialized training and individual senior care plans, we partner with residents to maximize their abilities and encourage independence, enjoyment and opportunities for success.
A structured daily program includes exercise, music, crafts and more. In addition, on-site visits by professionals who provide medical and therapy services offer convenient support for physical concerns. As with all Augustana Care programs, memory care also includes spiritual support for residents and families.
Meet the Shakopee Staff
I’m an occupational therapist who has worked for 11 years providing direct care to residents at Emerald Crest by Augustana Care. Currently, I’m working as the occupational therapist at the Shakopee community and the director of cognitive care.
As people with dementia-related conditions are often overlooked, being able to make a difference in their lives and how the community perceives them continues to drive my work.
I was introduced to the medical field at an early age through family members working at the Mayo Clinic and St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, Minnesota. I began my career as a licensed practical nurse (LPN) and became a registered nurse (RN) twelve years later. I eventually received my certification in Gerontology. My background in acute and skilled care and interest in memory care brings me to my new position as campus nurse at Emerald Crest. I believe in focusing on ability, not disability, and in the memory care model here. I look forward to forming connections with families, residents and staff.
I have worked in a variety of healthcare settings including long-term care, hospitals, home care and assisted living as a registered nurse. My passion is working with older adults in memory care and I have been at Emerald Crest by Augustana Care for 13 years. I love what I do and think it is an honor to serve residents, families, and staff. I feel blessed to have found a career and a setting to practice nursing where I can truly grow and give back.
I spent the majority of my life with my grandparents. Though I never had any inclination to study nursing, when my grandfather had a stroke I helped care for him. Once he was better, I returned to school for my certified nursing associate degree and worked in care communities and assisted living settings. After a back injury, I studied accounting, staff development and management so I could continue working with older adults. I love visiting with residents. Seeing them makes me think of my grandparents. I hope they would be proud of what I am doing now.
