Prairie River Buffalo Office Now Offers Life Care Consulting

Roden, KatePrairie River Home Care is excited to introduce our new Life Care Consultant, Kate Roden.

Kate Roden is a Certified Professional Gerontologist. In May 2015, Kate earned a Master’s Degree in Gerontology, the study of aging, from Bethel University. Kate loves working with people and especially the aging population. Her enthusiasm stems from a deep and dear relationship with her late paternal grandparents.

As a way of filling the void left from the loss of her grandparents, Kate dedicated herself to a career that is focused on aging, paired with a passion for serving others. She enjoys working with Prairie River Home Care because its values, leadership, and caring philosophies align with her own vision. Kate loves life, and many would describe her as a positive ray of sunshine motivated by serving others.
