Battle Creek is filled with community members who are committed to creating a city where we can all live, work, and play.
This month, we’re focusing on a woman who has combined her personal experience with Alzheimer’s disease and her expertise to provide care for seniors in our community.
meet alexandria lueth
Alexandria Lueth is the current Chief Executive and Financial Officer of Senior Care Partners, which is a private nonprofit Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). She joined PACE in 2012 after falling in love with their mission to provide comprehensive care for the elderly population in the region.
Alexandria has a personal connection with the mission. Her grandmother was placed in a nursing home because of the progression of her Alzheimer’s disease.
When asked about the experience, Alexandria said, “I now know what it meant for [my grandmother] to leave her home. It meant leaving behind her independence and the home that she shared with her husband, her cats, and her garden. So this spring, as I watch Grandma Cassie’s peony bloom, I am reminded of the opportunity we give all of our participants – the promise to help them remain in their homes for as long as possible.”
creating a culture of vitality
Senior Care Partners opened its doors in 2008 with a staff of twelve. Now, in 2019, Alexandria manages a staff of over one hundred people.
There are nearly 7,000 individuals over the age of 65 living in Battle Creek. This makes Senior Care Partners critical to the wellbeing of the community.
We asked Alexandria what she would like Battle Creek to know about her work. She said, “You can and should reach out for help sooner, rather than later.”
keeping the momentum going
After celebrating Senior Care Partners’ tenth anniversary, Alexandria expressed that the group is expanding to numerous locations throughout the region. Currently, they are working with Oaklawn Hospital to get a center in Albion. “Expansion represents PACE reaching out to the community,” Alexandria explains.
Alexandria wants it to be known that they will continue to grow. “We’ll grow in numbers, strengthen models, strengthen the capacity of our staff and continue to respond to the communities’ needs.”
