Pam Foti is a pharmaceutical industry veteran with 17 years of experience working in SE Wisconsin with psychiatrists and neurologists. For ten of those years, Pam had the opportunity to work in the long term care arena with geriatricians, pharmacists, nurses, and caregivers in both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities. Pam’s professional experience gives her insight into the business of elder care, but more importantly, Pam lost her own grandma to Alzheimer’s Disease. This personal experience drives Pam to help the families she works with find the best possible care for their loved ones. Pam is married to Phil, and they live in Wauwatosa with their two daughters, two dogs, two parakeets and two guinea pigs.
