About this Episode

The Geneva Suites is a residential senior home model run by Marlena Hemenway and her husband Scott. The core values of The Geneva Suites are:

  • Safety of residents and staff
  • Improve service continually through education
  • We are acountable for our actions and decisions
  • We face challenges with optimism

The Geneva Suites has six residential homes for seniors (each home can house six seniors) and the renovations are being completed for a seventh home set to open in early 2019.

Marlena encourages family with elderly loved ones to start having the necessary conversations about end-of-life care. She notes it is best to consider the options and make decisions before a crisis happens, and it is often best to transition a senior out of their home and into an alternative living facility sooner rather then later.
