Caron brings over 10 years’ experience working with seniors in Lakeland to Merrill Gardens at Champions Gate as a Community Relations Director. She has also been involved with several area advocacy groups, including the Alzheimer’s Association, the National Association of Social Workers, VISTE (Volunteers in Service for the Elderly), and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Caron, a native of Georgia, feels a deep connection to seniors, especially those with Dementia, after seeing both the good and bad of her grandmother’s battle with the disease. The experience motivated her to earn the designation of Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP). Caron is also an Army mom, as one of her daughters proudly serves in the military.
This is Caron’s first term on the Better Living For Seniors board.
