Locally Owned and Operated
Our Gable House is designed for those who have mild cognitive impairment, dementia or are in the early stages of Alzheimer's Disease. Our Hepburn House features care for those who need additional assisted living support. The Tracy House supports men and women who are in the advanced stages of dementia and Alzheimer's Disease.
A Brand New Day is locally owned and operated by Mary and Arlen Burger. Why is that important? We are actively involved in the operations and are readily accessable to meet the needs of our residents and staff. We listen to your concerns and make things right, unlike remote corporate operators who put the profit motive above all else. We understand that our Personal Care Assistants make a big difference in the quality of care your loved one receives. We invest in training to teach our Personal Care Assistants the skills to deliver world class care.
