Heart to heart with Jane…

What words come to mind when you think of serving your residents? Wonderment. Exuberance. Hope when there is disparity. Love when there is sadness. Joy when there is uncertainty. And family when they are needed most.

A clarifying moment at Grand Brook?
One time I introduced a resident as a “former” nurse. She quickly corrected me saying, “Once a nurse, always a nurse.” Pride in our lives stays with us and should never be removed. As a nurse myself, I could not agree more. Always remember to make someone feel what they’ve accomplished matters.

Have you had a loved one with dementia?
Yes, my mother. She developed cardio-vascular dementia. It was very challenging. In many ways, it is how Grand Brook came into being.

Advice to family members?
Let the small things go. Life is so very short and love is what remains.

What makes Grand Brook a “family”?
Just as family does life together, Grand Brook does work together – we trust, depend, and pick each other up when days get tough. I’ve been with Constant Care/Grand Brook for 24 years and I have celebrated my marriage at a Grand Brook, my MBA graduation at a Grand Brook, and the birth of all three of my children at a Grand Brook. That is “doing life together” for me with our Grand Brook family.

Name your superpower
Mine is helping people understand how valuable they are in our organization. I believe in servant leadership. Making sure my team has everything they need to be successful is my priority.

What advice do you have for family members?
Do your homework. There are lots of options out there and understand what will work best for your loved one. I believe tenured staff is one of the most important questions someone can ask.

Heart to heart with Jamie…

When you think of Grand Brook what images do you see?
The first image that comes to mind is the gathering of people. Images of sweet morning gatherings that join our staff and residents together singing hymns, praying the Lord’s Prayer, and reading the Bible. Images of a spouse sitting with the love of their life holding hands, talking about the day, or looking at photos. Images of some of the most genuine, brave, and loving caregivers and nurses sitting together with no words, just being together hand-in-hand, finding strength and peace in each other.

What makes your day?
My interactions with our residents remind me how powerful a hug and a smile can be! One day, a resident asked me how my day was and I replied with, “Well, it’s not been my day today.” His eyes softened as he looked straight at me and put his hand on my shoulder saying, “No, it’s sure not your day, this is the day God made, so make it a good day.” I mean, where else can you be surrounded by the wisest, most honest, and experienced people that can turn your day around with one statement. It’s a blessing to serve seniors.

What advice do you have for family dealing with dementia?
Allow yourself to feel of all the feelings that come with this journey, talk about them, and know it is okay to feel that way. This journey is a ride with ups and downs. Remember to enjoy the time together with your loved one. It’s okay to laugh and smile, it’s okay to do absolutely nothing and just be together, and it’s okay to take a break!

How is Grand Brook like a family?
Family looks after each other’s hearts and share a unique bond. Being a part of the
Grand Brook family, we share these same traits with one another.

What do you feel when you walk through the door?
Warmth, joy, and connection.

Share a special moment with a Grand Brook resident.
There was a gentleman in one of our communities that stole my heart from day one– he was a man of very few words. I would walk the community each morning and always made a stop in our game room where I would find him watching TV or cat napping. I would give him a kiss on the forehead and tell him I loved him. He would give me a big smile and nod–this was our routine for quite some time. One day, out the blue, after the ‘I love you,’ he opened his eyes and said enthusiastically, “You know, I LOVE you TOO, LuLu!” I was shocked and baffled. I had to know who Lulu was. I spoke with his son who could not believe it. He kept asking me “Are you SURE he said Lulu?” Yes, I remembered very clearly. His son told me the story–Lulu was his grandmother. They were extremely close. He often said she was like a mother to him. His son said he could not believe it but I must have reminded him of her. This is one story of many when I have been “someone else” a resident had a deep connection with-–what an honor (as our founder Jane Anderson says) to be known as LOVE.

What do you love about Grand Brook?
The images I see are all the residents’ faces. I love seeing their smiles, but sometimes it is their tears. Their eyes and faces are the insight to their lives and souls.

Is this a job or a calling?
For me personally I knew that God was calling me into Senior Living. I have a heart for the elderly and Grand Brook became my family.

What do you feel when you walk into a Grand Brook community?
It feels like HOME. The communities are designed to feel like HOME. But it is not just the building itself, it is the warmth and caring of the management and staff.

What is your superpower?
I enjoy lifting people up and recognizing them for what they do each day. It takes a
special kind of human being to serve selflessly in our communities, and I want our Grand Brook teams to feel valued and know how much we truly appreciate and love them.

What makes your day?
Celebrating the good. I honestly love the excitement when our teams celebrate the victories; whether that is a staff member winning the employee monthly raffle or the joy in someone’s heart after they’ve spent the afternoon at a baseball game with a resident. God’s goodness is all around us!

What do you feel when you enter a Grand Brook community?
Each community has a special place in my heart, and they all represent a unique part of our Grand Brook family. What really stands out to me is the beautiful heart/compassion and dedication that is alive in each community. We have amazing team members, and incredible families. There is a genuine sense of family, faith, connection, and love in each home. It’s really neat to see that culture, the same culture our family helped create 20+ years ago, carried throughout every Grand Brook community today.

What advice do you have for families dealing with this decision?
Do your homework. There are so many options today. I tell families all day long we can build beautiful buildings, and we do, but that is not what truly matters. It is about the people inside the community; our teams loving and caring for residents, treating them like their own family. Family makes a difference!
