Director of Admissions/Social Services at Lakeview Commons.
Susie Brailsford, our remarkably versatile Director of Admissions/Social Services at Lakeview Commons in Loveland, takes on many roles to ensure our residents' well-being. Her primary focus is guiding families through the transition process of moving their loved ones into Lakeview Commons. She educates families about the services offered, conducts informative tours, coordinates medical orders with doctor's offices, and facilitates the logistical aspects of the moving-in process. After residents have settled into the facility, Susie continues to be invaluable, connecting residents with essential resources as needed, organizing Care Conferences, and serving as the go-to person whenever residents require assistance.
With nearly a decade of dedication to Lakeview Commons, Susie has become an integral part of our community. Before her role at Lakeview Commons, she worked at our Management office as an Office Manager, showcasing her versatility and commitment to Columbine Health Systems (CHS).
What Susie values most about working at CHS is the incredible team she has the privilege of collaborating with each day. One advantage of being in a smaller facility is that it allows her to create genuine connections with each resident and their families to understand their unique life stories.
