From the outset, you took the time to evaluate my mother’s physical and emotional status, and to recommend that support which met her specific needs. As time progressed, you continually reevaluated her situation, and ensured you understood the full spectrum of challenges that she and our family were facing. Together, we successfully worked out a package for increased care and support, when that became warranted.
Samantha joined the Armistead Senior Care team in 2006 working part time as a caregiver. While her full-time job was in the medical field, she realized that her passion was working directly in the community, and serving the senior population. It was during this time that she realized Senior Care was the field in which she would like to grow and Armistead Senior Care offered her that opportunity. Samantha’s commitment to Armistead and her ability to continue her education allowed her to transition through many roles. Samantha began her transition in 2010 as a Client Services Coordinator. Soon after, she began her role as Armistead’s Care Manager for Washington, Lamoille and parts of Chittenden County which then led to a promotion to Director of Care Management. She has been recognized as an Aging Life Care Professional™ having previously attained her Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) and Care Manager Certified (CMC). She became a Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP) in 2016. She received her BA from UVM in 2003 and is a member of the South Burlington Rotary. Samantha was promoted to Vice President in January 2017 and became President in July 2017.
