Care Home Manager in Grants Pass:
"Rewarding."
Pros: Ensuring the quality of life for dementia residents is very rewarding. It can be extremely challenging with behavior and health concerns. Having a small group setting, makes it personal in knowing each individual resident. It feels more like an extension of family than larger facilities.
