Ecumen staff celebrate 150

Ecumen Scenic Shores Executive Director Blaine Gamst (Two Harbors) and Shawna Jokinen, administrator at Grand Village Care Center in Grand Rapids, joined 300 others in the celebration of Ecumen's 150th anniversary at the "There's No Place Like Home" gala in early November. The evening honored 150 years of history and looked forward to continued innovation. Proceeds from the gala will help support Ecumen's Awakenings initiative, a groundbreaking new approach to Alzheimer's care that moves people away from unnecessary use of antipsychotic medications and awakening them to living as fully as possible.
