Working with Seniors quickly became my passion after graduating from nursing school.  Several years later in 1986, I accepted my first administrator position running an Assisted Living community.  I went on to become a licensed nursing home administrator in 1989 and have been successfully running senior communities since.  I joined Jewish Senior Life in December 2018, and have been warmly greeted with many welcomes and smiles.  I am well connected with the Michigan Center of Assisted Living and the Health Care Association of Michigan and sit on the legislative/ regulatory committee.   I am married and live in Fraser with my husband Scott and daughter Marion.  My son John and my granddaughter Giada live close by.  We spend many nights at Fraser Figure Skating Club where both my daughter and granddaughter are skaters.   In the summer months we enjoy our new camper, and spending time with family.

Resident Services Coordinator

I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Arizona and taught kindergarten for a few years thereafter. I then decided to continue my education in New York, where I obtained my master’s degree at Yeshiva University. From there, I relocated to Tampa, FL where I practiced social work for 20 years at a women’s hospital, and built my family. I now have two sons, Josh, 20, who is studying at Michigan State University, and Jake, 18, who is studying at the University of Arizona. I am very dedicated to my work, and our residents and am grateful to be part of such a supportive Jewish community.

Program Coordinator

I am Mary Saggau Blowers, Activities Coordinator at Fleischman Residence/Blumberg Plaza. I am lucky to be here – using my energy, enthusiasm and imagination working with, and for, the residents at Fleischman. I attended Michigan State and Washington University in St. Louis and am an audiologist by degree. I worked in that field for many years. While raising my five children, I began volunteering in different capacities with seniors in area retirement facilities and nursing homes. Being of service, hearing their stories and sharing laughs with them were experiences I greatly enjoyed. I began working in a senior community center in Grand Rapids and after moving to the Detroit area, I was fortunate to find a similar position at Jewish Senior Life.
