Resident of the Month

Meet Dotte

Dotte (as she spells it) was born in 1922 and moved from Chicago to NM and then to Denver where she met her husband, Jim. They settled in New Jersey where she was a “stay at home mom” to their three children. Upon retirement, they moved to Arkansas. She was able to have up to eight horses, her lifetime dream, along with many cats and dogs that happened to wander onto their ranch. Upon Jim’s passing in 2014, Dotte moved to New York State with one of her sons. In the Winter they would travel to their Southern home in Greer, SC.

A few years ago, she requested to stay in SC at an assisted living home where she could get the care and assistance she required in her senior years. After two years in another assisted living location, she moved to Spring Park after finding out one of her old caretakers, Sandra, was now working there. Having worked with her in the past, her family had confidence that this is where they wanted Dotte and her cat, Felix. Sandra specifically is one of the most caring people they know who wants nothing but the best for the residents. Dotte just loves her and has made it easy to move to Spring Park knowing Sandra was there.
