Santino had this to say about working at Waterstone on Augusta: “I’ve had the pleasure to work with amazing leadership and learn a lot about holistic wellness. I feel it’s most important to have balance in one’s life, no matter the age. Focusing on the physical, mental, and spiritual dimensions of our residents’ well-being. I specialize in holistic wellness and create many opportunities to engage and promote the full wellness umbrella. What’s most important to me is being creative and engaging. My passion to serve seniors comes from the relationship I have with my grandmother, whose journey with Alzheimer’s has just begun. Learning about Alzheimer’s has given me more understanding and opened my eyes. I want to give that knowledge and attention to our community.”
