Home Care Director
Sigrid VanDemark, RN is the Home Care Director for Dellwood Gardens Assisted Living. With more than 10 years of experience in the health care field, she began her career as a CNA. Since then her drive to give time and attention to seniors has kept her in the field of senior care.
Sigrid entered nursing with the intention of working in the labor and delivery field, only to take her first job caring for a senior with Dementia. Sigrid quickly started to realize that society placed so much focus on the beginning of life and not as much on the end. So, it was with a passion and a mission to place focus and attention on seniors entering later stages of life, that Sigrid entered the field of long term care.
Sigrid is a certified wound nurse and has started education in Healing Touch.
When she’s not at work, Sigrid spends time with her family and friends.
