Tracie Flores is the administrator at Country Side Living of Redmond opening on October 16. It is part of a new intergenerational community developed by Erik & Kristen Berkey that includes Thelma’s Place Day Respite opening November 2015 and Whoopsy Daisy Child Center set to open January 2016. This is the first intergenerational program in Deschutes County.
Thelma’s Place gives the person with memory loss a safe, fun environment to be in for a few hours a week while their caregiver has a break to take care of personal errands or just go home and take a nap. With this break, or respite, they can continue in their caregiving role at home as long as possible.
There may come a time, though, when a loved one needs more care than can be provided at home and the caregiver needs to consider Country Sided Living, a memory care community for 35 residents. The professional, kind staff at Country Side specialize in the care of those with memory loss including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or related dementias.
As administrator Tracie Flores has experience in the health care industry since 1991. She has worked in home health, was administrator for an assisted living facility and most recently worked for over ten years for a residential care facility. She attended Valley Medical College in Modesto, California earning her license in health care administration.
Flores, along with Erik & Kristen Berkey, and all the other staff invite you to the Grand Opening of Country Side on October 16 from 12-7pm at 1350 NW Canal Blvd. in Redmond. There will be delicious hors d’oeuvres, raffle drawings, refreshments, free pumpkins and ice cream for the kids, local art displays and live music including the Redmond Jazz Band and Stronghold jazz/rock band.
