Crossroads at Lakewood Memory Care is pleased to welcome Cory Strauch as our new Executive Director. Cory grew up in healthcare. His mom was a nurse and his grandmother ran a home health company. His first personal encounter with healthcare was in high school. Cory, as a member of a championship ROTC unit, learned discipline and responsibility. He was also introduced to seniors with and without cognitive deficits while participating in community outreach programs.
His is a true “work your way” up story when it comes to his experience in assisted living and memory care. He began as a dishwasher at 15 and then moved to caregiving when he turned 16. By 18, Cory worked in various facilities as a QMAP and other roles. At Crossroads, Cory first worked overnights as a QMAP and soon transitioned into daytime work, eventually becoming a Resident Care Coordinator and most recently the Resident’s Services Director at Crossroads at Northglenn.
Cory received his Executive Director license in January 2020 and has been in Crossroad’s Administrator In Training program since. Cory is an active member of CALA, the Colorado Assisted Living Association, where he received various training and certifications including his Dementia Certification from the Colorado Gerontological Society.
Satisfaction of the resident, staff, family and care provider has always been Cory’s utmost priority and one he plans to continue as he leads the team at Lakewood. Expect a revamping of the dietary program and resident services immediately. Cory’s long range goal: Elevate Crossroads at Lakewood Memory Care to the next level, as the premiere memory care facility that it is, for the residents in our community, their families, and our staff and care providers.
