House Manger / Montcalm
My name is Brook Dykstra, house manager at the Montcalm location of Golden Life AFC. I am relatively new to Golden Life and joined the team in the midst of the 2020 pandemic. I have several years experience caring for others, which includes assisting in running an adult care business from 2015-2018. Previously, I spent many years as a stay-at-home mom while homeschooling my children before venturing out to care for the elderly at an assisted living community. I am excited to see Golden Life grow and be a part of the family atmosphere.
I have a love of people from all walks of life. You will rarely, if ever, be greeted without a smile to make you feel welcome. I would describe myself as a fun loving, compassionate, detail oriented person with a nurturing spirit who enjoys helping others become the best person they can be.
I am energetic and thrive in a fast paced environment, which coincides nicely with my role as a mom to nine children, with ages spanning 21 years. I have two grandchildren who are loved dearly as well.
In my free time, I take pleasure in being outside, listening to music, many forms of exercise, making use of my creativity in various ways and spending time with, you guessed it, people!
