Petersen Health Care is teaming up with a company out of Oklahoma for an innovation in the Memory Care business that is set to save lives and change the way we care for those suffering from Alzheimers, Dementia and other Memory related issues. This Oklahoma based company, CISCOR, however, has Kewanee roots. Sam Youngwirth was born here in Kewanee and grew up knowing Doug Currier, Petersen Health Care's leader. It was that connection that brought Sam home to Kewanee and with him some of the most innovative ideas in caring for people in need of Memory care. Sam and Doug along with Maisey Postin from Petersen Health Care joined WKEI for our People to People program on Tuesday to talk about what CISCOR is bringing to Betty's Garden here in Kewanee.
