Leslie Pedtke, LHNA, Author
Consultant. Speaker. Collaborator.
“In my work with the Alzheimer’s Poetry Project, I have had the opportunity to observe how hundreds of skilled nursing homes, assisted living, and adult day care centers (in 28 states and internationally in 7 countries) take care of people. With Leslie Pedtke’s innovative leadership, Aviston Countryside Manor ranks among the best-run communities I have had the honor of working with. When I participated in Through the Looking Glass, I learned so much about empathy and myself. While this book is not a magical key—it takes daily hard work to achieve what Aviston Countryside Manor has achieved—I can say if you follow Leslie’s steps, it will lead you to a magical place; a truly person-centered, respectful, and loving community.”
