Sioux Falls, S.D. – What do you do when you want to honor someone’s memory and make a difference? For Rochelle and Luke Odenbrett of Brandon, S.D., the answer was making a gift to the Good Samaritan Society – Prairie Creek.
“One of our interests in giving is because Luke's dad is also suffering from memory loss,” Rochelle said. “We just felt this was a good way to support others that are going through it.”
There is no cure for memory loss, but there are ways to help people as the conditions progress. Prairie Creek, located in Sioux Falls, S.D., has assisted living suites that are uniquely designed to support people with memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias.
“My grandmother, Josephine, also spent her last few years in a nursing home suffering from dementia,” Odenbrett said. “I recognize the importance that compassionate caregivers play in helping these individuals and their family members cope with this horrible disease.”
A gift to Prairie Creek seemed like a good fit for the Odenbretts and a meaningful way to honor a loved one, Gary Odenbrett.
