Maribel Mendez

Director of Memory Care

About Maribel Mendez

Working with Solera gives Maribel more opportunities to make a bigger difference in the lives of Alzheimer’s and dementia residents. She is dedicated to ensuring those living in Modena Cherry Creek are receiving the very best care.

With 12 years of experience in memory care, Maribel knows well the value of both compassion and creativity. “I want to help make residents’ lives better,” she says, “I enjoy interacting with them and building connections. In memory care, you often have to come up with different approaches to a situation, so every day is different. Creativity helps me pivot.”

It’s not just her experience in memory care that has taught Maribel how to change directions quickly and be part of a team. She is a big fan of football and actually played semi-professionally. Other interests are hiking, camping, Lady Gaga and watching episodes of Friends. “I know every episode by heart but they still make me laugh.” Maribel also enjoys spending time with daughter, Mikayla, and family.
