Shalene Chascha Rycroft
I was born and raised in Grande Prairie, spending much of my time on the family farm near Woking, AB. My story begins as an only child, raised by two very hard working parents, who instilled in me that reaching for the stars is never the limit, and that nothing is impossible without a lot of hard work and determination. This is something that I have worked very hard on to pass on to my children. In 1999, starting out as a health care aide, and with a lot of determination, hard work and support of my husband & family I finally followed my dream in becoming a Registered Nurse. I graduated in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, working in a rural acute care setting, on a surgical unit, a Home Care Discharge Coordinator and Emergency Dept. to Home RN/Case Manager however, most of my years have been spent being a Home Care Nurse/Case Manager.
My true passion is simply to be an advocate for individuals and their families. Working in a field where I witnessed many of the challenges and hardships that people are faced with has inspired me to embark on a new goal. This is why and how Seniors Best Life Inc. was created. I am a very goal oriented person and through personal and professional experiences my belief that providing person centered care is truly the only way. Individuals deserve respect and assistance when facing lifetime changes and challenges - none of us are exempt from facing many of these changes and challenges throughout this journey we call life.
