Our staff of professionals is trained in everything from the latest medical care and therapies to healthy and delicious meal preparation. Yet we make room for compassionate connection with residents to take precedence over the necessities of our job descriptions.
We are skilled professionals, yes. And we are here to connect with you in the spontaneous moments that make your life (and ours) more meaningful.
THE APPLE BLOSSOM EXECUTIVE TEAM
Executive Director: Doreen Bufalini
Community Relations Director: Wendy Jack
Wendy Jack was born and raised in Pittsburgh and attended both the Community College of Allegheny County and the University of Pittsburgh. She holds an Associate’s degree in Marketing Management.
Both Wendy’s mother and aunt were diagnosed with Dementia and Alzheimer’s, a personal history that helps her empathize with residents and families and enables her to act as a resource. Her path to senior living communities started there and was reinforced when she began providing weekly floral arrangements at a Senior Living Community. She owned her own floral business at the time, and the interaction with residents and professionals at the community moved her to explore a new passion.
“We promote positivity and sincere care for all. I absolutely love what I do. And everyone has stories to share! I have met artists, well-known coaches, successful business professionals, mothers who raised children under extraordinary circumstances, and so many wonderful people. And we encourage these individuals to be community ambassadors, giving resident presentations on their travels, culinary experiences, musical talents, etc. We are here to maximize seniors’ quality of life. This is not just a mission, but a way of life.”
