Summer is in full swing! We are excited to celebrate another sunny season together. We’ve got you covered if you’re looking for some great ways to get involved this summer.
It’s for the birds – Families can contribute to our birdseed bin outside the front door. Feel free to use it anytime and join our community members in some bird feeding and watching.
Tend your garden – Also, if you and your loved one ever want to help water or deadhead plants in the courtyard/garden beds, join us. It’s wonderful for everyone to engage with our community in this productive way.
The more, the merrier! – It’s fun to help each other be successful!
We’d love to introduce you to one of the wonderful members of our Arbor Springs family – Lisa Odland. Lisa is the Assistant Director of Nursing and Quality Assurance Registered Nurse here at Arbor Springs.
Lisa, in her own words: “I learned early in life that I was here to contribute to other people’s lives, whether that be through teaching, care giving, or something as simple as listening.
This mission has played out in many different ways, starting with a degree in Mathematics Education. While working as a teacher for ages ranging from infants to high school, I discovered that I had more of a desire for hands-on care giving. I’m so excited to bring my experience with all ages to Arbor Springs as the Assistant Director of Nursing and Quality Assurance Registered Nurse.
I have several hobbies and can often be found tackling some sort of project. I also love learning anything and am currently familiarizing myself with the Montessori principles and teachings as they apply to caring for dementia residents. My personal interests include reading, music, creative writing, and spending time with family and friends.
At Arbor Springs, my day encompasses auditing residents’ charts to ensure quality care, leadership, and, my favorite – interacting with the residents.”
Thank you for everything you do, Lisa!
