As a Navy wife, Sandee Sterling s professional career as a nurse has spanned cities across the country. I ve experienced multiple areas of health care, but I always tend to gravitate back to geriatrics, says Sterling. For the past four years, Sterling has worked in the field of continuing care. She helped open assisted living at The Solana, in Katy. Recently, Sterling was named the director of nursing for the new continuing care neighborhood at Eagle s Trace, the Erickson Living community in West Houston. I ve heard very good things about Erickson Living over the years, and now I see why, she says. Eagle s Trace has such a feeling of community. It s all about the personal connections. As she anticipates the opening of the new continuing care neighborhood, Sterling says it won t be business as usual. We re taking a more holistic approach, she says. The care will be tailored to each individual, not just to address their medical needs but also their social and emotional needs. The new 112-unit continuing care neighborhood, scheduled to open in early 2013, will offer short-term rehabilitation, skilled nursing, assisted living, memory care, and long-term care.
