Alzheimers Association - CT
Chapter. Fairview was proud
to nominate both! Elaines
nomination read: Elaines husband
was a resident in Fairviews Guided
Journeys program. Despite all the

her grief, Mrs. Livingston continues

Herlande Leriche has been a CNA
for two years in Fairviews Memory
Care Program. She was nominated
because, she takes the time to get

appreciated her, and the residents
love her. Herlande is a true
champion and wonderful caregiver
for Fairviews Alzheimers patients.
