CarDon & Associates is pleased to announce the hiring of Andrew Buzzard as the new Executive Director of Arbor Trace in Richmond, Indiana. Andrew comes to the CarDon family with over 10 years of experience in the administration and care of seniors. Andrew is a lifelong resident of Indiana. He has been married to his wife, Angie, for 8 years and they have three children ages 7, 5, and 7 months. Andrew grew up on a farm in Warren, Indiana, and attended Ball State University with an eye on a nursing degree. “My mom is a nurse, my aunt is a nurse, and my wife’s a nurse.” Andrew finished with a degree in Exercise Science.
While working on a graduate degree in Biomechanics, Andrew took a class in Gerontology. “That’s when I fell in love with the idea of working with the elder community,” he said. “My business is to serve, I love to serve, and it is a privilege to serve older adults.”
Andrew is a hands-on administrator. “How do you know how to manage unless you’re out of your office?” he asked. “I will know everyone’s name. I firmly believe that if you take care of the residents everything else will take care of itself.” Andrew said good open communication, an excellent support system, and the focus of CarDon on the well-being and happiness of our residents was a deciding factor in taking this new position.
Andrew has a plan to enrich the lives of the residents of Arbor Trace. “I hope to grow the number of assisted living residents we can serve, and I’d like to see an expansion of our rehab facilities. I like the quote I read in Galatians, ‘Serve one another in love.’ That is my philosophy. I will bring a caring attitude to our facility, one that provides an enriched, fulfilled life to each of our residents.”
Arbor Trace is having an open house to introduce Andrew on Thursday, January 23rd from 4pm to 6pm. “We have an amazing facility, 38 acres of green space, it is beautiful,” Andrew said. Visit with Andrew on the 23rd and take a tour of our grounds, you will agree.
