My name is Melanie Bess, my husband Jonathan and I started Aspen Quality Care, an Adult Family Home in Aug of 2009. Just prior to that, I had Oasis Quality Care in Coeurd'Alene, ID for 3 years. My love for this work started while I worked at an Assisted Living Facility in Idaho and was a manager of one of their Homes with 10 residents. My husband is a BLS/CPR/1st Aid/AED Instructor and previously worked on Ambulance and Fire Department in California. I love working with the elderly and helping them to reach their highest potential. "If you don't use it, you lose it!" Our residents become our family, and we love them like our Grandparents.
