Team Vesta raises over $5,500 for the Alzheimer's Association "The Longest Day" Fundraising Campaign
As Senior Care Consultants with Vesta Senior Network, we are first hand witnesses to the stress that caring for someone with Alzheimer's creates.
On The Longest Day, June 21, 2017, we wanted to recognize not only those suffering with this horrible disease, but we wanted to let those caregivers know that we honor and respect their roles. We took this day to bring awareness to their struggles and raise funds that will not only help the Alzheimer's Association #ENDALZ, but also provide support and services for caregivers until we realize a world without Alzheimer's.
We participated in a day of Strength and Endurance in recognition of the strength and endurance caregivers muster on the longest day of the year, as well as every day of the year.
Our Longest Day Activities included:
7:10 am: Insane Cardio Class at Legacy Gym MKE, Thank You Legacy Gym for your support again this year! http://www.legacygymmke.com/
8:30 am: Team Vesta completed a 50 Mile (round trip) bike ride on the Oak Leaf and Glacial Drumlin Trails
5:00 pm: The day ended at Leff's Lucky Town (http://www.leffs.com/) for camaraderie and amazing raffle prizes from Leff's Lucky Town, Revere's Wells Street Tavern, Black Shoe Hospitality, Paulina's Aesthetic Boutique, Ray's Growler Gallery and Wine Bar, Jose's Blue Sombrero, Yo Mama's, Oro di Olivia, Bunzels and Rocket Baby Bakery! Thank you to these local businesses for their generous donations.
Team Vesta is humbled and thankful to all of our friends and family who supported our Longest Day fundraiser to help #ENDALZ. Your individual donations, the generosity of local businesses, and the patrons at Leff's Lucky Town who participated in our raffle and 50/50 helped us to raise over $5500 for the Alzheimer's Association!
Thank you, thank you! #thelongestday #endalz

This morning, Vesta owners, Pam Foti and Jenny Wagner presented at the ABLE (Active Business Leads Exchange) meeting at Dave & Busters in Wauwatosa. ABLE is a networking group sponsored by the Wauwatosa Chamber of Commerce that promotes alliances and interaction with committed professionals.
This morning's presentation was "The Elder Care Crisis: The Impact on your Employees and your Bottom Line". As many people can relate, finding the best care for a loved one can be difficult and stressful. That is why it is best to refer to experts like Vesta that specialize in Assisted Living care options. This way, the employee can focus on their career and Vesta can provide the best options for their loved one, eliminating wasted time and energy during an emotionally charged time.
Vesta owners, Pam Foti & Jenny Wagner had the pleasure of presenting this week at the North Shore Senior Networking Group. Pam and Jenny discussed industry trends and how senior living options have changed over the last 20 years.
Vesta takes pride in their role as educators and advocates in the senior care industry. We enjoy working together with our industry partners helping seniors find the best care.
Pam Foti, co-owner of Vesta Senior Network, was recently interviewed by Jim Kendall from Kendall Communications for his blog, Senior Surge. This blog is dedicated for Senior Citizens and their families.
In the blog attachment below (see below), Pam discusses 6 tips to help seniors choose the best options for senior housing.
Vesta Senior Network was pleased to attend the Wisconsin Parkinson Association Holiday Party at Westmoor Country Cub. This is a remarkable organization. Please see the link to read the full article in the Waukesha Freeman newspaper.
Vesta Senior Network was featured on the "All Business Show" with Dr. David Borst WTMJ Radio 620 in Milwaukee on Saturday, December 3, 2016. Listen in as Pam & Jenny explain how Vesta Senior Network can help you and your loved ones navigate the complex world of Senior Living.
Pam Foti and Jenny Wagner are pleased to announce that Derek Nelson has joined Vesta Senior Network as a Senior Care Consultant effective December 1, 2016. In Derek’s new role, he will be responsible for guiding families through the complex maze of senior living, identifying solutions that will provide the best care and quality of life for their loved ones.
Derek has had an impressive career in the healthcare industry. Derek earned his master’s degree in Healthcare Administration at Des Moines University Osteopathic Medical Center. He is a licensed EMT, has work experience in healthcare centers, and for the last 6 years has worked in sales and operations in the homecare industry.
Derek’s record of success, as well as his reputation for always thinking of the individual and family needs first, have made him a natural addition to the Vesta Senior Network team.
Vesta Senior Network was proud to sponsor the meeting at the Catholic Professionals Forum with speaker, Marquette University Men's Lacrosse Head Coach, Joe Amplo. This event was held at Westmoor Country Club on October 20th. Joe spoke about the importance of relationships with his players on and off the field. He considers himself an educator, and he sees it as his job to teach his players how to love - love the sport, love each other, love themselves. This love will give ...someone the faith to fight through the fear, the failures, and also be able to enjoy the success.
We appreciate Joe's reminders of the power in relationships. We believe this is one of the reasons why Vesta has been successful. We build relationships with each of our clients and their families. We understand the importance of understanding fully what each client's unique needs are, and it is our goal to do this through building strong relationships.
During this forum, we also encouraged business owners and executives to in attendance to invite Vesta do a "Brown Bag lunch" or "Lunch and Learn" to serve as an educational resource to their SandwichGeneration employees, those who are trying to manage their professional lives, the lives of their families, as well as the care of an older adult. Vesta can help relieve some of the pressure that a person who is trying to balance so much personally and professionally because Vesta has the expertise and knowledge help navigate the complex world of long term care.
It was a great morning at the Catholic Professional Forum. If you are interested in learning more about this networking organization, please visit their website below.
