Mind and Memory Care Director Jamie Harvey is a third-generation nurse.
She has been in senior care for over ten years, beginning as a Home Health Aide and working up to an LPN. She has also been a nursing supervisor, manager and educator and plans to pursue a certification as a registered nurse.
“I feel like it’s in my blood,” Jamie explains. “I grew up in the nursing homes my mother worked at, and I’ve always loved being around this population.”
Jamie has been trained in dementia care and has worked extensively with people who have Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. In Mind and Memory Care, Jamie will oversee the neighborhood, connect with families and enrich residents’ lives.
Her favorite part of the job is the people. “I feel fulfilled when I can help people, so it’s an honor for me to help not only my residents but their families too,” she says.
When she’s not working, she enjoys spending time with her spouse Billy, her “best friend,” and the couple’s four-year-old daughter, Charlie.
