THE WELLNESS VILLAGE SPOTLIGHT
Founder and CEO, Rhiannon Acree
Rhiannon is delighted to offer continuing support to the amazing Parkinson’s Resource Organization (PRO) community. Her company, Cambrian Homecare, joined the Wellness Village years ago when it was first introduced because she felt personally inspired to help those dealing with the condition. Rhiannon knew her small-town upbringing, earlier nursing education, and passion to help people maintain their independence would be core strengths in her ability to support those living with chronic diseases such as Parkinson’s. She realizes there are challenges beyond the obvious physical symptoms and sincerely hopes that the efforts of PRO's Wellness Village and PRO can fundamentally change society’s stigma of this disease. Nothing is more upsetting than witnessing a person being made fun of because of their physical differences or limitations. Her dedication to progress is deeply personal now that her husband faces symptoms similar to Parkinson’s.
Entrepreneurial in spirit, generous of time and talent, one of Rhiannon’s favorite quotes is “The best way to predict the future is to create it! Better to try and fail than fail to try.” She knows the power of positive thinking and understands that all families need help at some point. Cambrian Homecare was designed to deliver the right amount of care to enable the highest quality of life for those diagnosed with Parkinson’s and their primary caregivers – the families. Without exception, Rhiannon and her caring and capable team at Cambrian strive every day to make life’s journey a little easier.
