Elsie’s Place is a family care home in memory of Elsie McDonald, grandmother of Gina Stavredes. She was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease and lived with it for nearly ten years before passing away in 1996. Following the diagnosis and passing of her grandmother, Gina was inspired to enrich the lives of the elderly and to help make the best of their golden years.
With her past experiences, both personal and work related, this home is her way of also helping family members to cope, understand, and enjoy their elderly loved ones during this time in their lives.
