A graduate of San Diego State University’s Master of Social Work program, Shannon Patel was thrilled to return to The George G. Glenner Alzheimer’s Family Centers, Inc.® as the Memory Café Coordinator after serving as a social work intern at the Chula Vista Center in 2016-2017. With experience in both activities and social services, Shannon previously served as an activity leader and then social worker in long-term care at Saint Anne Home Retirement Community in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

She feels working with older adults, and especially those affected by Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias, is her calling, and loves to help preserve and increase the quality of life for this population through social engagement, education and connection to community resources. Shannon is a San Diego Native and currently resides in Bankers Hill with her husband and infant son.
