BakerRipley has a champion working for our neighbors with dementia.
Katie Scott, BakerRipley Dementia Day Center Director, is the 2019 WellCare Grand Champion of Southeast Texas! She was one of five finalists for the region.
The WellCareChampions competition recognizes the exceptional service of residents in southeast Texas on behalf of older adults.
“I consider myself fortunate to do this work—to support individuals and families affected by dementia. On a daily-basis I get to be a friend and resource to people often stigmatized or overlooked,” said Katie.
The winner was announced at Minute Maid Park before the Houston Astros vs. Los Angeles Angels game on September 20. After that, Katie received $25,000 that will go towards the BakerRipley Dementia Day Center.
At BakerRipley, we believe individuals with dementia deserve a nurturing space to engage in a purposeful and meaningful life. In conclusion, this award money will allow us to continue our work supporting our neighbors with dementia.
