Since entering the senior care field, Lorry discovered her true passion in life….making a difference in the lives of the elderly. Caring for those with Alzheimer’s and memory loss is also a very personal part of Lorry’s life – she cared for her father who had the disease. She is honored to continue to make a difference in the lives of her residents and we are proud to have Lorry a part of the Preston Senior Living team.
