Spotlight: Meet Assisted Living Community Liaison Tanace Foster

Treemont residents will see a friendly face walking around Campus. Tanace Foster has been promoted to the Community Liaison at Senior Allegiance, providing support to our Independent Living residents.  Tanace will soon have an office in the first floor main lobby across from the library, making it easier for residents and family members to stop by and ask questions instead of going to the main Senior Allegiance office in F309.  When not in the office, Tanace will be participating in community events, including scooping ice cream at the monthly Ice Cream Social.

Residents move to a senior independent living community with the desire to stay independent as long as possible.  Treemont introduced the concept of “Independence Plus.”  Seniors who need assistance with Activities of Daily Living can receive Personal Assistance Services and/or Medicare covered Home Health services in their apartment instead of moving to an assisted living facility.  Senior Allegiance is the “Plus” in Independence Plus.
