The Lodge at Buffalo Hill welcomes a new Resident Care Coordinator, Tammy Miciewicz. Mrs. Miciewicz began her career as a certified nursing assistant at Immanuel Skilled Care Center 36 years ago. She spent most of that time as the recreation coordinator for the Bratsberg Memory Care Service. In 2017, she was called to develop the recreational programming for The Lodge and has been overseeing the program as the recreational coordinator since opening.
Creating moments of joy all day long is an essential part of memory care. The Lodge staff works as a close team, which is essential for residents to thrive. “They may not remember exactly what was done but they are going to remember the feeling and the mood can stay with them throughout the day,” Mrs. Miciewicz notes.
“The reason we have such a successful memory care program is because the staff provide individualized programming for each of our Lodge residents. We try our best to have group activities that everyone wants to participate in but we also provide one to one programs according to resident needs,” Mrs. Miciewicz continued. We are so glad that Mrs. Miciewicz is bringing her extensive expertise to this role.
