Mary Weeks Named Memory Care Director for The Lodge at Greeley Senior Living
October 15, 2020
Mary Weeks has been named the Memory Care Director for The Lodge at Greeley Senior Living, a new 55+ community in west Greeley offering independent living, assisted living, and memory care apartments.
Mary began her senior living career in 2011 as a caregiver and quickly identified a passion for seniors with memory loss conditions. Since then, she became a medical assistant and worked at several senior communities throughout Northern Colorado.
At The Lodge at Greeley, Mary will oversee day-to-day memory care operations. As a Certified Montessori Dementia Trainer with certification from the Center for Applied Research in Dementia, she will also be training team members on the principles of the Montessori Method for Dementia Care.
“Through the person-centered Montessori approach, our team members can ensure residents have as many choices throughout the day as possible — residents decide when they want to wake up, go to bed, what and when they want to eat, what they want to do for the day,” Weeks said. “Our team is here for our residents’ safety and to provide hands-on care as needed.”
In the years ahead, Mary said she is looking forward to doing the kind of memory care work she finds fulfilling — helping The Lodge at Greeley residents be independent. “We want to encourage our residents to do all the things they have always done,” she said. “Our team will be here to assist them if they need it and to motivate and encourage them.”
