The CountryHouse memory care residence team

Our people are what make CountryHouse a true home. Treating people like family is at the heart of all we do, and at CountryHouse, we take that philosophy seriously—learning our residents’ stories, preferences, likes and dislikes, favorite memories and more—to create a personalized, customized care that’s as compassionate as it is comprehensive. Everyone on our staff understands the difference between caring and giving care, and every day they recommit themselves to that philosophy.

Laura Thelen

Laura brings a nursing degree, many years of memory care experience and a true servant’s heart to her position. She cares deeply about seniors and those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, and is committed to providing the best possible experiences and support for her residents, families and staff.

“It is an honor to be part of the final years of the seniors we care for,” Laura says. “We’re able to make them some of the best, leaving a lasting mark on their families.”
