Senior Care Consultant - Angel Freudenreich, BS
Angeline lost all her grandparents, except one cherished grandmother at a young age. This grandmother has now also passed away, but not before inspiring her granddaughter’s work. “My grandma, Helen, is both the reason and the inspiration for my career in senior housing. When she moved into Independent Living she was happier and had friends to socialize with on a daily basis, instead of experiencing loneliness and isolation like so many other seniors.”
