MEET OUR STAFF
Here are some of our stellar staffers
Barb - Executive Director
As an eldercare advocate, I explore the individuality in each person I serve. I enjoy delving into each person’s needs and function levels to adapt my care and make everyone’s life as fulfilling as possible. I know that families are very busy, so it makes me feel good that I can be there in a time of need. As a new grandma, I have plenty to share with my residents, and they have offered me lots of tips too!
Janine - Marketing Director
I’m so happy that we enjoy a great reputation with our current and former resident families and the entire community. The highlight of my day is helping families like yours find answers to the toughest questions. Your visit here is the beginning of our long-term relationship. We know this is a tough decision, and it warms my heart when families share that they made the right choice when they chose Addington Place.
Jude - Wellness Coordinator Nurse
I work with the most interesting and wonderful people. There is so much variety here at Addington Place, that it’s impossible to get bored. I really love seniors and find them extremely fascinating. Memory care can be challenging but I enjoy finding solutions. Once we overcome the challenges together, we are best friends.
Scott - Maintenance Director
I worked in senior communities in Missouri before a career change into the construction field. I have returned to Memory Care because of the satisfaction I feel from helping our residents and their families. From a freshly painted room to repairs in the neighborhood, my goal is to help provide the best quality of life. I know I am making a difference in their lives when I see the smiles on our residents’ faces.
Shelly - Life Enrichment Specialist
I, along with our three other Life Enrichment Specialists, make this a very special place to live, by keeping everyone happy and engaged in fulfilling, meaningful activities. I like the personal relationships I build with families and residents. I feel like I’ve become part of their family too. That’s why I’ve been here almost 19 years. You can really tell the difference when you walk into Addington Place.
Nikki - Staffing Coordinator/Caregiver
I enjoy caring for all our residents and hearing their wonderful stories. It can be a challenge to move into a new place, or for your memory to fade. But, for the past ten years here at Addington Place, I faced each resident’s challenge head-on. This enables me and my fellow caregivers to provide loving care that keeps them happy, active and safe. We are all like one big happy family, residents and staff, alike.
Melissa - Administrative Assistant
Hello - I am the first happy face you see when visiting Addington Place! I will help take care of any of your needs, direct you to your loved one or get you in touch with any of our staff. I am happy to help in any way I can. Addington Place has become my second family and I know it will become yours as well. I am sure you will enjoy experiencing the love and care we offer you and your family.
Robbin - Weekend Receptionist
If you come by on a weekend, I’m happy to show you around. My mom lived here for almost two years and I also volunteered with activities before working here. So, I know Addington Place from both sides. I’ve been in your shoes. I can assure you that Addington Place was the best decision I could have made for my mom. I’m a testimony to the great care that all our residents receive. The interaction with the residents and family members is what I enjoy most. Come visit and see for yourself.
Lovie - therapy dog
What makes a house a home? It’s more than the furnishings and framed-pictures. It’s the friends, a loving staff and other reminders of home. Lovie, our furry friend, shares her love freely with those who need comfort, affection and help to make the transition to a new home easier for residents and their families.
