Hello, my name is Terry Rogers and I am thrilled to now be part of the CLC family. I have truly enjoyed the warm welcome received from so many wonderful associates, residents, business partners and friends. I will be visiting each community this month and will hopefully get to meet each of you. You make this organization so special.
So who is this guy Terry Rogers? Good question. Let me tell you a little bit about myself and why I am so thankful to be here at CLC.
I am an Alabama native, born and raised. Other than a short time in the beautiful state of Tennessee I’ve made Alabama home and raised my family there. I love the South… its genuine hospitality, the emphasis placed on family and community, and, yes, I love college football. I always thought I would seek a new adventure elsewhere at this point in my life, and I have found it. The things I love about the Alabama and the South, I am already experiencing here. I will never stray from Alabama football, but I commit to do my best to cheer enthusiastically for the Broncos!
Let me tell you about my family. I am an identical twin. My brother, Tim Rogers (yes, I am already having fun with that since we have a Tim Rogers who is the Executive Director at Someren Glen), and I are the closest of friends.
I have two nearly grown sons; Josh is at Ole Miss (a.k.a the University of Mississippi) and my younger son, Logan, is finishing a co-op program for his senior year in high school which means he goes to school for only a short time during the day then heads off to work to gain real-life experience in the workplace. His plans are to venture west for college – of course, I’m hoping that means here to the beautiful state of Colorado!
I’m married to the amazing Beth Phillips Rogers, who is a board certified Emergency Medicine physician. Beth and I love travel and adventure, and it is this shared passion that brought us to the Mile High City as well as my desire to continue to serve in a faith-based, not-for-profit senior services organization.
My 27-year career includes management positions with a national home healthcare company and serving as CEO of a large Life Plan Community similar to Clermont Park, Holly Creek and Someren Glen.
I am passionate about culture change, mission-based services and the development of new and innovative programs that enrich the lives of older adults. These are exactly the goals and values of CLC and that is why I am so very thankful to be part of the family.
