Overlook CARE Team

Kimberly Ollerhead

"I chose Care Management because since I was a little girl, I was exposed to being around elders. My Grandfather worked was an Executive Chef at a skilled nursing facility and used to take my younger sister and me to visit the residents on a regular basis. I loved speaking with them and hearing their stories. The resident’s with Alzheimer’s Disease/dementia intrigued me the most. I’d always gravitate towards these residents, and knew from a young age that I wanted to make a difference in their lives and in the lives of their loved ones. It only made sense that when it came time to pick a career, I became a nurse and got into care management. Today, I’m just as passionate about eldercare as I was years ago, and still look forward to going to work every day.”

I chose Care Management because having grown up with parents who were a parole officer and a nurse, working in the human services field was a natural career choice for me. I chose nursing determined to make a difference in people’s lives. Geriatric Care Management allows me to combine the human services and nursing passions to help others navigate through challenging times. I find it to be fascinating and enjoyable to work in the geriatric field to develop and implement individual client care plans.

“I chose Care Management because I was raised in a family culture where my grandmother was (and continues to be) matriarch. She was always willing to solve a dilemma, showed me what it meant to follow through on commitments and has always been and will always be an incredible source of comfort, support and comic relief. As the years passed our roles began to change, as she had previously guided me I am now watching over her. She taught me the importance of being a support system when others are in need and the virtue of being patient when ideas, beliefs and conversations clash. Because of my grandmother, Sylvia, I am driven to work in the field of eldercare; not only to help but to continue to learn and grow."
