Armgard was trained in Germany as a nurse and throughout her career has worked with seniors in hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living communities. In the last 15 years, she found her true passion in being an advocate for people living with the condition of dementia and in educating staff to provide the best care to keep residents as independent as possible while maintaining their dignity. Her last stop before coming to the USA nine years ago was Switzerland where she worked in an amazing setting for those with dementia. In America, she had to reinvent herself and found her calling as the Director of Memory Care. She continued her education and received many certifications including: NJ CALA, CNA, CDP, CADDCT, CDCM and Dawn Dementia Care certified. Her goal every day is to make our residents happy in the moment and have families feel they can relax and enjoy special times with their loved ones. Armgard met her husband while on a ski vacation in Switzerland and they make their home in Trenton, NJ.
