Who We Are
We are a team of individuals who had a vision for seniors in Alaska.
In 2010, Suzanne Hickel founded an in home care agency in the Anchorage area. For six years, while serving the senior population, she realized a need for more than in home care. Our seniors were in need of assisted living, specifically - memory care.
In 2015, her vision came to fruition as the opportunity to open an assisted living presented itself. With her husband, Ray Hickel, they brought on MaLane Harbour who would help with development of this new home. Right away, Suzanne knew she wanted to make this a progressive home for seniors with any form of Dementia.
In January of 2016, Beth Rhoden, L.P.N and Director of an out-of-state memory care, flew back to her home state to train the new team on Memory Care.
And that was the beginning of Opus Memoria - A work of memories.
