Meet our New Memory Care Coordinator, Heather Gray!

August 1, 2023

Highlands Nursing and Rehabilitation is excited to introduce our new Memory Care Coordinator, Heather Gray! Learn more about Heather:

“I graduated from Sullivan University with my LPN in 2015 then went on to pursue my RN a couple of years later. I graduated with an associate degree in nursing in 2019. I started my healthcare career when I was in my early 20’s as a housekeeper and I climbed my way up the ladder. I then moved to activities assistant, CNA, LPN, RN, then took on a management role here at the Highlands. I chose to pursue a career in nursing after my grandmother got sick and I was left to take care of her. I knew right away that taking care of the elderly was more than a job, it was my calling. My passion to work with the memory care population came from also being a caretaker to my great aunt who had a diagnosis of dementia. Memory care residents have a story too, and it is my role as the memory care coordinator to help them to reminisce on their life story and hope to bring a smile to their day. Healthcare can be challenging and sometimes has new challenges daily, but at the end of the day knowing that I was able to make a difference in someone’s life keeps me motivated. The most rewarding part of my career is being able to see them happy and give them a home or a family outside of the one they have built. “
