Wendy Schutzer, MSG, CDP, is our care manager with the most longevity at Springpoint at Home. Wendy recently celebrated five years with the company.

Her passion is in the areas of geriatric mental health and advocacy. “I really enjoy learning about the lives of my clients. Each and every one has led an interesting life, filled with many adventures and accomplishments. I recently had to take the cat of one of my clients to the veterinarian. She had adopted this cat from a friend, and no one knew anything about its history. We were advised that, at the least, it should have a rabies shot. The cat and I were gone for about an hour and a half. Upon our return to the client’s house, she was waiting at the front door for us. It turns out that she was very upset and crying the whole time we were gone because she didn’t think the cat was coming back. She loves her cat!” You can learn more about Wendy through these client testimonials: Client Testimonials.
