What I'm passionate about:
My family and my faith, tennis, gardening, sports and helping professionals and the families they serve to find the appropriate senior care.
Mexican, Italian, Chinese, Steak, Macaroni and Cheese - It is hard to find something I do not like!

A Note From Glenda
"Finding the best care for seniors can be overwhelming and intimidating to families. Having worked in senior healthcare over 20 years, and now with A Place for Mom for over eight years, I have the privilege of knowing many dedicated professionals in the “senior provider” field. One thing we all have in common is a passion to serve seniors and assist them in having the highest quality of life possible. We are rewarded from knowing our work is meaningful to so many people. I love working with the social workers, discharge planners, case managers, physicians, elder law attorneys, senior financial advisors and the many other service people who help the elderly. There is an energy, drive, and compassion that is unmatched in other professions. Helping families to find the best care and needed resources while offering patience, understanding and knowledge is extremely rewarding to my team at A Place for Mom."
