Soul of Respect Inspiration in Eldercare with Fee Stubblefield
Does your mom or dad realize they need help but you don't know what is available let alone what's important in considering their care? Do you watch your elders age and hope (and pray) that when you get to that age you'll live with dignity? In this show Cheryl welcomes Fee Stubblefield, Founder of The Springs Living, which provides retirement, assisted living and memory care in Oregon & Montana. What started as a real concern about caring for his own grandmother Fee evolved into a mission to provide seniors with a community where they can live life to it's fullest rather. Fee believes that respecting each person's past, present and hopes for the future provides a foundation for optimal eldercare. With understanding that while our bodies change as we age we don't change as people. It's about respect. If you or someone you love is aging tune in and learn how a few simple steps can change a life even as it's nearing the end of life.
Fee Stubblefield is the President and Founder of The Springs Living with its home office in McMinnville, Oregon. Fee started The Springs Living in 1996, with an idea to build an Assisted Living community that would be acceptable to his grandmother. Today, there are 10 communities in Oregon and two in Montana offering options for Independent Retirement Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care. The focus, for Fee, has never been to be the biggest, but simply to be the best. Fee embraces the “magic” in this business that happens in the daily interactions between residents and staff. Fee attended Clemson University; is married with three children; serves on the boards of Oregon Health Care Association and Providence Milwaukee Foundation.

About Cheryl Maloney:
Cheryl first started writing a blog in 2009 when she was an out-of-work, out-of-shape, over-fifty corporate executive, collecting unemployment, questioning her own worth, dealing with her husband Jack’s scary health diagnoses and beating herself up for the stupid financial mistakes she had made.
After months of writing daily, she started posting her thoughts on Facebook in March 2009. Believing she was not alone in her challenges … she came to realize was that there are more people dealing with some major issue in their lives than expected.
