Keisha Griffin, LPN – Nurse Manager
Joined team in 2016
I grew up in the South County area and graduated from Bayless High School in 2006. I was lucky enough to be an only child, my mother is the second youngest of 14 and she had no intentions of following my beloved grandmother’s footsteps. Myself, on the other hand, I’m a mother of two cutie pie girls, Kailey and Jaida. Being a mother is one of the joys in my life.
Shortly after high school, I received my certification as nurse assistant. Working as a nurse assistant taught me the basics and fundamentals of nursing, and I will forever be grateful. I continued to climb up the ladder and received my certification as a medication tech. Then, I received my LPN license a few years later.
As a LPN, I have had the opportunity to experience different areas of nursing such as: long term care, skilled care, and pediatric nursing. This has broaden my horizon as a nurse and opened my eyes to my calling….geriatric care. I was first introduced to memory care 10 years ago and fell in love. It’s a joy knowing that I can get that one moment of joy with a resident.
In my time a Dolan Memory Care Homes, I know that I found my place. It was very evident to me that they absolutely get memory care. I am proud to be a part of the team. I enjoy the person centered care and home feel. The residents here at the house can absolutely have a snack at 3am, they surely can sleep in until 9am and then have breakfast. If a resident is adamant that the walls are purple, they are absolutely purple for the day. This is their world, their safe place and we are here to ensure that. Each day is different and each day is a joy.
In 2018 Keisha was 1 of the 10 nurses selected by a panel from 300 nominations to the St. Louis Post Dispatch Nurses – Heart of Health Care.
