Attorney-CPA Joe Cordell and co-host Jill Enders are joined by Friendship Village President and CEO Terry Walsh and Friendship Village Chesterfield’s Executive Director and Chief Strategy Officer Carmen Fronczak to discuss the trend of seniors in the St. Louis area moving into assisted living and memory care facilities amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The group discusses the grand openings of state-of-the-art assisted living and memory care campuses in Chesterfield and Sunset Hills, as well as how to pay for long-term care, in general.
They highlight how many of the design choices of the Chesterfield campus was based on input from staff and residence of a previous Friendship Village location, as well as the preparedness of their staff in handling the magnitude of new residents at both locations.
The group talks about the community atmosphere that helps seniors in combating loneliness, depression, and other mental health-related issues that may come with going through the aging process alone.
