My mother, who is 90, has her full mental faculties but just needs some physical help. After just a year at Living Springs, she has grown very attached to many of the members of the staff and looks forward to seeing them.

The staff are very attentive to my mom's needs and keep me posted on a regular basis with any issues that arise or needs that she has. They make me feel like my mom is the only resident there with the attention they give.

An added benefit is that my mom is always talking about how great the food is. When they serve something she doesn't like, she lets them know and they give her something she is more interested in.

I couldn't be more satisfied with Living Springs Assisted Living.

Caregivers to Living Springs

Greetings!

Let us introduce you to our Staff. It’s important to us to have continuity of care, so we work hard to choose the right caregivers and then to keep them. They develop relationships with the residents and make it feel more like home.

  Janae

Janae joined our family at Living Springs July 2004. A CNA for the past 13 years, she has been one of the main cooks, which she loves and excels at.  She is also a quality Caregiver. However, due to her organizational, communicative, leadership skills and mental aptitude for tackling problems, dealing with staff and families she has been promoted to House Manager.  You will love working with her.
Janae has been in the caregiving field most of her life, growing up in a home that cared for disabled and elderly.  She is multi-talented so if you need it taken care of, whatever it may be, she’ll do it! She loves to cook, and the one thing she tells people when they want one of her recipes she just cooked is that she usually doesn’t use the one printed….
Janae also manages the selection and printing of the menus from our Licensed Dietician at Grove Menus.  She does the grocery shopping one day per week.  And, if you see her while she’s on this mission, please stay out of her path ~ she moves like lightning and you don’t want get hurt!!

Janae has two children and lots of “adopted” ones! She enjoys kids. And has one, very smart, good looking, well-behaved grandson, Tian. She has many “adopted” children, friends and family as well.  They are crazy, wild and wonderful.

She brings to our Family a warm, caring, insightful dimension that is unique, spiritual and comforting. During her busy day of meal prep, serving, cleaning up and passing meds you can catch her quietly comforting and dispensing hugs to everyone around her.

     
   

Carley is our Cook (the other of two!)  She started working with us in July of 2018 and we couldn’t be
happier to have her here!!  She loves to bake and is good at it too.  We are always praying for the bananas to be getting old when she comes to work so she’ll whip up a batch of delicious banana bread! 

Carley balances family, pets and her job with a calm, comforting demeanor.  She’s a real asset to our Family and we love having her here.
