Candice Flowers feels she was drawn to serve as Administrator for Reflections Garden Place because of its family atmosphere. Working with and caring for the comfort of the elderly has been Candice’s career privilege. Candice came to us with over 20 years of healthcare experience working in long-term care as an Activities Director, Social Services Director and as the Regional Marketing and social media Director for various long term care homes. Her passion for working with residents with Dementia and Alzheimer’s was formed by her almost 10 years with Hospice of Southern Illinois as a Community Education Supervisor, where she says she learned to teach by example and to be humble and kind. Her favorite part of her day is listening to and learning someone’s life story and making sure that their care is tailored individualistically. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Psychology at SIUE and in 2012 her Master’s degree in Healthcare Administration. She is excited to join our team and our family.
Fun facts: Candice was born in Spain, lived and traveled all over the world as a member of the Air Force, before coming to Illinois for college. Candice and her husband, Elvis live in Granite City, Illinois with her two children and two large dogs. Her favorite color is blue, and she loves vintage glass and driving fast cars.
