“We do this work because we love it. Because we can see the difference true memory care makes in the lives of our residents and families.”

MEET THE STAFF

Elizabeth Garton Masic Executive Director

“Alzheimer’s and dementia take an extraordinary toll on families. I’ve seen it first hand with my own family—and our families here at Barton House. That’s why our philosophy is to deliver the best life possible, for our residents and their families. We believe in the dignity of each moment: kind words and a hand to hold, a clean shirt and neatly combed hair, an invitation to sing along, even when words don’t come easily. We believe in answering questions and keeping families informed, but always focusing on the positive. We believe in transparency, and access, patience and good humor. We believe that the body and spirit absorb everything—regardless of what the mind remembers. And we make every moment count.”

Kelsey Tibbs Activities Director

“I come from a small town in southwest Virginia, where I worked at Virginia Mental Health Institute before moving to Nashville. I love my work at Barton House, because it feels like a family. There’s a real sense of community here. I get to share my gift of singing with our residents, leading them in old hymns and other familiar songs. And no matter what activity we’re doing, our residents bring me so much joy. I love knowing that at the end of the day, I too have brought moments of joy to someone else’s day.”
