Jun 13, 2022


Chesapeake, VA – Jeffrey Smith, MD and Jennifer Ladaveze, FNP, have been our Partners in Care for several years. Now for the first time, this pair will be caring for residents in a Virginia-based Assisted Living and Memory Care community that just opened its doors.

A bit more about the team:

Dr. Smith – a graduate of Eastern Virginia Medical School, he specializes in geriatrics and emergency medicine.

Jennifer Ladaveze – she earned her Master’s in Nursing from Maryville University of Saint Louis. Jennifer specializes in family medicine and cardiology.

Together, this team will work on-site with our assisted living community partners to help residents stay active and healthy.

The journey to assisted senior living can be clouded by myths, misperceptions and stigmas. Jennifer and other senior living specialists were featured in the Legacy Lamp podcast, “Smashing Stigmas: Journey to Senior Living.” This episode features tips for those beginning or are in this process.
