On Nov. 1, Interfaith welcomed Shawn Callisto, RN, MSN, PHR as the Time for You Respite Center program coordinator.
Callisto comes to the program with a great deal of knowledge and experience and will be a natural leader for the program according to Interfaith program director Lori Chown.
Callisto has a Master of Science Degree in nursing as well as human resources/business administration and a marketing degree.
She has worked for Black River Memorial Homecare and Hospice, Pine View Care Center and Morrow Memorial Nursing Home. In addition to the Time for You Respite Center program coordinator position, Callisto will continue her employment with B Home Services.
Callisto is a member of the Black River Falls Lions Club, the Squaw Creek Lutheran Church and is secretary of their church council. She has also served as a board member for Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers.
Callisto is very excited to work at the Time for You Respite Program. “Through my nursing experience, many people with loved ones living with dementia are looking for such a program.”
As coordinator, she will be developing a volunteer team to assist in engaging activities to enrich the lives of dementia patients, while giving a much-needed break for the caregiver.
