Whether it’s an engaging conversation or having a good laugh, our caregivers bring their unique personalities to the Three Rivers community, offering residents an all-around charming experience. Because our caregivers take the time to learn meaningful details about each resident, trusted relationships are formed, creating a foundation for a better understanding of residents’ daily and long-term wants and needs. This philosophy of personalized care makes it easier, and more enjoyable, for our residents to reach the goals they set for themselves.
Dana Butler, RN, our Administrator at Three Rivers, spends her time ensuring each and every one of our residents experience the highest quality of care possible. She “truly cares about our residents – and it shows,” is a common compliment paid to her.
When Dana isn’t making residents smile, she works on striking the perfect balance between her passion for health and fitness and her chocolate addiction.
Dana’s passion for long-term care was clear to her as early as the age of 18. From CNA to LPN and RN to Director of Nursing and now Administrator, Dana’s journey in long-term care has provided her with 21 years of professional experience. She also holds a CPR Certification and is a licensed Nursing Home Administrator.
At Three Rivers, Director of Nursing Misty Stevens continues to make a positive impact in the lives of our residents daily. Her friendly nature, nursing expertise, and ability to promote understanding and acceptance among residents and their families in long-term care, make her a valued asset in the Three Rivers community.
With a team-player mentality, Misty always helps in any way possible and consistently puts residents’ needs and comfort first. When Misty is caring for our residents, their families feel comfortable knowing that their loved ones are also comfortable.
Misty brings two decades of nursing experience and nearly seven years of long-term care experience to Three Rivers. As a former CNA and RN, she also has experience working in hospitals, Labor and Delivery, and for a cardiologist. Misty is an active member of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Brittney Smallwood Ward, LPN, has a knack for building trusted relationships with residents, their families and other staff, helping to establish a family-oriented environment at Three Rivers. She’s often told, “Everything she does, she does with passion and purpose, giving 100 percent.”
From personal experience with her grandmother and her time in nursing school to today, long-term care has always held a special place in Brittney’s heart. As the co-chair for the 2017 Walk to End Alzheimer’s, she is also passionate about actively helping to find a cure for the disease.
Brittney brings nearly a decade of long-term care experience to our Three Rivers community, including being a Charge Nurse for several years. She’s served as an Alzheimer’s Support Group Facilitator, Rotary Secretary, and a cheerleader and softball coach.
