Beatles or Elvis?

Elvis, I watched his movies as a kid growing up and wanted to be just like him!

How did you wind up at Inspired Living?

My Mother battled Alzheimer’s for years and my wife and I were her caregivers. I wanted to be involved with an Innovative Company that is willing to try fresh new ideas and not afraid to think outside the box to help our Residents. Inspired Living is that Company.

What do you want your legacy to be?

I would like to be remembered as a generous, fun, caring person who helped the people in my life and left them better than when I found them.
