Sandra Ballard is Jefferson Park at Dandridge’s June Resident of the Month.  Sandra was raised in Strawberry Plains and always enjoyed helping her mother with daily chores growing up.  Sandra loves helping others and can always be found taking advantage of our community’s group activities.  She is very social and active and participates in just about every activity we have.   Her favorites include bingo, crafts, church services, and relaxing outside on the front porch of the Legacy Building.  You can typically find her in her friends’ rooms checking on them.  When she’s in her own room, Sandra loves to listen to her radio (Elvis and Gospel music are two of her favorites), watching TV, visiting with family, or going through her beloved jewelry collection.

At Jefferson Park at Dandridge, our elders are the center of our community.  Our goal is to strive to meet each elder where they are during their time with us.  We are grateful to the families who trust us...

Lonnie Hogan is our Resident of the Month! 

Lonnie was born in Gallup, NM in May of 1942.  At the age of 6, he moved to Morristown, TN and has remained in the area ever since.  Lonnie is married to Judy, and they have 1 daughter, 3 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren.  Lonnie and his wife recently purchased a single level home in Jefferson County, and he gets to go home soon! 

This is Lonnie’s second visit with us at Jefferson Park, and he wanted us to make sure to tell people he “loves this place.”  Both of Lonnie’s stays have been short term rehabilitation therapy stays and because of his hard work in his therapy—he has been able to return home after a short time.  During his time at Jefferson Park, Lonnie has enjoyed taking advantage of our bingo games.  Being around him makes our staff members smile, and we will miss Lonnie when he heads home.  From all of us at Jefferson Park, we are so proud of the hard work Lonnie has put forward so that he may get better and g...
