Five Star Senior Living Bridge to Rediscovery Director Odile Plancher shares her story of humble beginnings as a housekeeper in the United States to developing a passion for helping the elderly.

Odile’s upbringing was living a well-off lifestyle in her home country of Haiti. Her family moved to the United States in the early 90s, a time when Haiti was in political turmoil.

Not being an American citizen forced her to start her humble beginnings as a housekeeper. She then worked her way up and graduated from nursing school, and pursued a career in healthcare.

Odile considers the best aspect of her job to be getting to know the residents, which she considers more like her own grandparents.

“I spend a lot of hours with the family to trust me with their loved one.”

Working at Five Star Senior Living has given her the opportunity to develop her passion for helping the residents.
