ABOUT YOUR ADVISORS IN FREDERICK

Kriste KiddKriste Kidd
MA, CT, CSA

I am a native of Frederick, MD, and was primarily raised by my grandparents. As a child, I was my grandfather’s shadow. And through him, I learned the value of hard work, being trustworthy and dependable, and giving back to the community. As an adult, my role shifted, and I became the caregiver for my grandparents for over eleven years. My grandmother had Alzheimer’s disease and my grandfather had his own chronic conditions, which made caregiving challenging. My grandparents were my world, and this personal experience led me to my educational path of obtaining a master’s degree in thanatology (the study of aging, death, dying, grief and bereavement), and eventually to entering the geriatric healthcare field in 2012.

During my tenure with hospice and as an executive director of an assisted living community, I saw first-hand the difficulties seniors and their families faced when making healthcare decisions. I understood their concerns on a personal level. Professionally, I found that lending an ear, providing resources for support and helping them navigate through tough choices was more than just a job; it was my calling.

As an Oasis Senior Advisor, I continue my passion for supporting older adults and their families in the following areas: Frederick, Myersville, Washington County, Carroll County, Loudoun County and more. If you or a loved one are looking for the right senior housing community and may not know where to start or have questions, I can help. I will work with you to help meet your goals, reduce time and stress, and provide extensive information for you to make a well-informed decision about senior living options. Life transitions can be difficult, but with the right support, they can be a positive time by maintaining dignity and promoting quality of life.

Cathy BakerCathy Baker
Senior Living Advisor

I am a native of Waynesboro, PA. I moved to a small community in the mountains at the age of 16 and have loved the mountain life ever since. Over 33 years ago, within this community, I was fortunate enough to meet my partner, my best friend and husband, David. We have two amazing adult sons who we are very proud of and love dearly.

I have over 27 years of experience working in the field of Geriatrics. For the last seven years, I served as an Admissions and Marketing Director for a small personal care community in Pennsylvania. My experience has shown me that there are so many families and seniors that need support in finding the right assisted living option. During my tenure, I have guided hundreds of families through the process of finding a community that will become their loved one’s forever home. It’s not always an easy decision or transition to make, but I am passionate about helping seniors and their families make a well-informed decision about finding the right senior living option.

I am excited to bring my knowledge, compassion and dedication to supporting the efforts and mission of Oasis Senior Advisors. I feel this is a natural transition in my professional journey that will bring an abundance of opportunities to support seniors and their families in finding the right senior living option as well as additional elder care resources for support.
