We’re excited to host a special networking event, Have Your Cake and Eat It Too, right here at Park Regency Loveland on Thursday, February 22nd, from 4:30-6:00PM. In addition to enjoying some sweet treats (which everyone deserves in the middle of winter), visitors will have the chance to meet and mingle with our senior care professionals, including our Executive Director Kristen Vasquez and our Health Services Director, Tami Linder-Martinez.
We hope you’ll join us and find out more about our mission of inspired service—and what we’re doing to make an impact on our residents, their families, and the community we serve. Here’s a little bit about Tami, and what she enjoys most about our senior living community.
Tami Linder-Martinez knew Park Regency was a caring place when its executive director helped her decorate her office with Denver Bronco’s gear — even though she was a Patriots fan! In her time here, Tami has enjoyed building relationships with residents, families and staff, fostering a friendly camaraderie in a warm and caring atmosphere.
“Developing relationships that are built on a foundation of love, respect, trust, and safety are important goals I have diligently worked toward achieving,” she said. “Each resident has a unique personality that brightens my day as I visit with them.”
Tami came to Park Regency in Loveland to serve as Health Services Director after earning her Master of Science in nursing with an emphasis on servant leadership.
“Servant Leadership is based on Jesus and how He instructed us to be servants unto others. I was beyond thrilled when I discovered Bethesda Senior Living Communities is a faith-based organization,” she said.
BSLC’s leaders and staff focus on “inspired service.” For Tami, this means “considering the needs and wants of residents and their family members above my own needs and wants in order to provide stellar customer service. Considering the needs and wants of others also applies to my employees and peers.”
For those researching assisted living communities, Tami shares, “We are one of the very few assisted living communities that allow residents to stay once they spend down to Medicaid. We do not discharge for this reason. We allow residents to stay in our community as they progressively decline by offering help from outside resources such as home health agencies, PT/OT agencies, and hospice agencies.”
Come learn more from Tami at our “Have Your Cake and Eat It Too” networking event, a celebration of desserts and a chance to mingle with area senior living professionals. She’s excited, and shared that her favorite dessert is crème brulee.
“In order for crème brulee to taste good it must undergo fire,” she explained. “The fire doesn’t ruin the dessert; on the contrary, the fire enhances the dessert. Life’s challenges represent the fire that ultimately makes lessons in life sweeter.”
