Brenda brings key strengths to 2Sisters Senior Living Advisors: her tremendous expertise and genuine desire to help families. She joined 2Sisters after most recently working as Director of Community Relations at a Massachusetts-based Assisted Living and Memory Care community. She has also served as the Associate Executive Director for a large Independent and Supportive Care Community as well as in a small Memory Care Assisted Living. These varying experiences have enabled Brenda to thoroughly understand clients with different needs and preferences. She has worked with seniors of all ages, from active “seventy-something” couples, to young at heart 95-year-olds, as well as those with mild cognitive impairment and advanced dementia.
Brenda prides herself on finding what is unique for each family and truly listening to their concerns and wishes. After spending time getting to know her clients, Brenda patiently helps families navigate toward the best solution among the broad choices of independent living, assisted living, memory care, home care and skilled nursing facilities.
Brenda brings a passion to advising seniors and their families based on her own journey with her mother. When her mother was 85, Brenda managed the sale of her mother’s home and her move across the country into a senior living community. Her mother thrived, despite such a far move and her struggles with memory loss. Brenda managed her mother’s care until her passing at age 94. Because of her personal experience, Brenda believes strongly that all seniors deserve to be safe, remain engaged, have fun and live life to the fullest. She understands how painfully difficult it can be to leave one’s home, so considers it an honor to advise seniors and their families in their search for the “next best place to live.”
Brenda’s “happy place” is skiing (especially out West), and curling up with a good book (especially on the beach). She and her husband have lived in the greater Boston area for 25 years. They enjoy travelling, trying new restaurants and visiting their two adult sons, who live out of state, as often as they can.
Her genuine passion for helping and her optimistic approach make Brenda an invaluable asset to those seeking guidance in making the critical choice regarding senior care. Feel free to contact Brenda at (617) 701-7007 ext. 706, or by email at Brenda@2Sisters-sla.com.
