Director of the Middle School
Hilltop Montessori School
In my capacity as director of the Hilltop Montessori Middle School, we have collaborated on our “elderly companion” program that allows our eighth grade students the opportunity to build a relationship with a willing resident. Both the staff and the residents at Holton Home have supported and nurtured this program and many enduring and moving relationships have ensued. When it was time for my father-in-law to move from Colorado and be in assisted living, Holton Home helped make this transitory time of his life safe and embracing. Recently my mother also became a resident. Holton Home not only does a wonderful job caring for our elderly, but more importantly, it respects and celebrates who these people are now in this part of their journey.
