Caroline Sorensen has been in the assisted living industry since 2002. The desire for her to be involved with the elderly stems back to her childhood. She remembers serving her elderly neighbors and grandparents any way she could. She enjoyed sitting with them reading stories, baking, and helping around the house. When she was eight, her grandfather was diagnosed with dementia (Alzheimer’s disease). The memories she has with him are very precious and heartbreaking at the same time. Those are the moments that drive Caroline to ensure all residents get the quality of care and love they deserve.
When she started her first job as an Assistant Administrator, she knew early on this was exactly what she needed to be doing in life. Later, she pursued her career further and became an Administrator.
When asked what her why is, Caroline’s response was, “I ponder my why often. There are so many things that come to mind. I absolutely love what I do to make a positive difference in the lives of my residents, families and staff! Being able to make a difference by showing compassion and love is exactly what drives me every single day. The different life lessons I have been taught
by my residents throughout the years are priceless. I can’t express my gratitude enough for this.”
