Emerald Crest Memory Care Shakopee, MN

Memory Care Shakopee, MN

At Shakopee Emerald Crest by Augustana Care, seniors will find thoughtful memory care in an assisted living setting where each individual’s personal preferences are valued. Our assisted living services help residents with tasks like dressing or showering and are tailored to their needs. Through specialized training and individual senior care plans, we partner with residents to maximize their abilities and encourage independence, enjoyment and opportunities for success.

A structured daily program includes exercise, music, crafts and more. In addition, on-site visits by professionals who provide medical and therapy services offer convenient support for physical concerns. As with all Augustana Care programs, memory care also includes spiritual support for residents and families.

Meet the Shakopee Staff

Residence Director Denise Beck, RN

Denise-Beck_DSC_7246.jpgI have been working in the healthcare field for 24 years, beginning as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) in a long term care center in 1989. I worked as a CNA for 7 years while studying to be a licensed practical nurse (LPN) and then worked as an LPN for more than 11 years. In 2010 I obtained a registered nursing (RN) degree and became a director of nursing in an assisted living community until June, 2013. I then accepted a position as resident director/RN at Emerald Crest of Burnsville. I accepted the position because I wanted to work in a community that emphasizes capabilities instead of losses. I am proud to be working for a company that truly encompasses every aspect of what it means to care for older adults.

Director of Cognitive Care Jenny LaVoi

Jenny-Lavoi_DSC_470872A184.jpgI’m an occupational therapist who has worked for 11 years providing direct care to residents at Emerald Crest by Augustana Care. Currently, I’m working as the occupational therapist at the Shakopee community and the director of cognitive care.

As people with dementia-related conditions are often overlooked, being able to make a difference in their lives and how the community perceives them continues to drive my work.

Administrative Assistant Nickie Matlick

Nickie-Matlick-web.jpgI spent the majority of my life with my grandparents. Though I never had any inclination to study nursing, when my grandfather had a stroke I helped care for him. Once he was better, I returned to school for my certified nursing associate degree and worked in care communities and assisted living settings. After a back injury, I studied accounting, staff development and management so I could continue working with older adults. I love visiting with residents. Seeing them makes me think of my grandparents. I hope they would be proud of what I am doing now.
