Meet The Team
Landa Clay Gamble, CNA, BBA, M.Div
Founder & Executive Director
Landa's days of working with the elderly began when she was a teenager in high school. Raised by her grandmother, who only had a third grade education, Landa remembers coming home from school and spending her evenings teaching her grandma how to write complete sentences. "Grandma was as excited about learning as I was about the opportunity to teach her." Also serving as one of her grandmother's caregivers, Landa recalls the frequent trips to the emergency room and doctor's office. Such early life experiences created a passion and love for making a difference in the lives of senior adults. Landa's passion for working with person's who have Alzheimer's is driven by her mother's struggle with this devastating disease.
