Winfield Rest Haven began a partnership on July 1 for additional operational support with Grace Team Services, a management and development company based in Topeka.
Grace Team is a Kansas-based senior care management and development company based in Topeka with a passion and focus of keeping person-centered, long-term care services flourishing in rural Kansas communities.
Grace Team provides operational support, clinical support, census building and fundraising support, as well as accounting and payroll services.
“As a board of directors, we felt strongly that we needed industry experts to come alongside our local leadership,” Terry Lawrence said, chairman of the board. “We want the seniors of Winfield and surrounding communities to be able to stay close to home when they are in need of long-term care. We are confident that the approach and style of support that Grace Team provides will help us achieve those goals.”
The board also announced the hiring of a permanent administrator, Madison Parker. Parker has a master’s degree in gerontology from Kansas State University and has worked in multiple roles in long term care settings.
“Madison comes highly recommended for her leadership skills, and we are excited to have her as our leader at Winfield Rest Haven,” Lawrence said. “Madison has family who lives nearby, and she and her husband look forward to their move from Topeka. We are excited for them to become involved in our community.”
Madison can be reached at (620) 221-9290. Due to the rise in positive COVID cases throughout the county, a community meet and great will be scheduled in the future.
