Phyllis DeLaricheliere is the Project Manager at Fairing Way, the South Weymouth site where the William B. Rice Eventide Home has selected Rogerson Communities to assist with the development and management of a new master planned community of Southfield that will include 216 apartments, a clubhouse and a new 46-bed "village-style" nursing home. Phyllis joined Rogerson Communities with tremendous professional experience in the areas of elder housing and elder care.
"I first became interested in elder care while working on a grant for Alzheimer's care and have explored my interest in a diversit of elder and Alzheimer's support services, housing, and care models. I've worked a great deal both in the direct service and administration of housing and services for elders, and at every level I've felt I was achieving my goal of servicing a population of elders I care a great deal for," says Phyllis of her inspired past.
Phyllis has not only worked in a variety of assisted living and independent living environments, she is a renowned expert on issues facing caregivers of elders and indviduals with Alzheimer's. With a Masters in Psychology specializing in holistic approaches to Alzheimer's care, Phyllis is a published author on the topic and an often sought after speaker and conference presenter. Phyllis is currently working on a book about compassionate care for caregivers.
"I've met the most incredible people. Not just the heroes who are the caregivers and the tireless professionals and the advocates bringing awareness and change to the status quo - but the aging people living their lives one day at a time wth dignity and grace and hope. There is a quality in the elders I've been priviledged to be exposed to in the past few decades, I've come to call them the "gracious generation" because that best describes the way in which they inspire me and compel me to secure as much as possible for the next generation," adds Phyllis about her passion for her work.
Fairing Way is the newest member of the Rogerson Communities family and Phyllis' commitment to the Rogerson Communities mission to provide lives enriched with dignity, longevity, and vitality to all elders makes her an inspiratin close to the heart of all her colleagues.
