Gina MacDonald

Board Member

Gina knew she wanted to do something that had meaning at the end of the day and wanted to be involved with something that could make the world a better place, even if only a little tiny bit at a time. Working with seniors and their families gives her the privilege to do just that. She finds that she is uniquely suited to be an advocate for them. The need for senior care often comes in a moment of crisis. This can be quite overwhelming. Add in navigating the process of making the right decision and you have a daunting task, to say the least. Gina helps make it easier. A warm and empathetic presence in their lives at this time makes all the difference. Helping a family through a struggle that you have not yet faced helps you realize what is actually important in life. Watching seniors work through the aging process has helped her reprioritize her own life and become a better, more patient and gracious person. Seniors have diverse interests, experiences and philosophies on life. Gina feels blessed to share them at Jenners Pond.
