About Us

We are a compassionate, visionary, thoughtful, inspired, analytical, and knowledgeable, group of individuals who share the same passion to pursue the art and science of memory care in a day program setting.  

Momma’s Hands

How We Got Started

Founder and Executive Director, Susan Bill has personal experience with a family member’s dementia and is also a Certified Dementia Practitioner and Geriatric Care Manager. Her professional background, along with a loving nudge from God, was the catalyst to forming this faith-based care program.  In fact, it was her faith and the belief in this mission that compelled Susan to resign from her respected career in October 2018 in order to commit all of her energy to the Program’s success.  

Our Mission

To partner with caregivers of loved ones living with Alzheimer’s and other kinds of dementia by providing a holistic care model delivering vital resources, support, and services to improve their quality of life.
