Settling in as a New Resident

Being the new resident can be daunting.

 

Bob Drummond, from Creve Coeur Assisted Living & Memory Care, had a difficult time settling in because his wife was still living in their home — he missed her desperately. To help Bob transition into his new home, his wife shared some personal information with the Creve Coeur team. 

Bob is a Veteran Army Sergeant who served in Korea, during WWII. He retired as a Sales Manager for International Paper Company where he often led meetings. 

Today Bob serves as proctor for the morning sessions reading the meeting notes and devotional, which he does with aplomb! 

He is a grand master storyteller who shares stories of his experiences during WWII and various adventures he has had throughout his life. 

He used to seem defeated, but now he is energetic, eager and involved every day!
