Paula Manzke

My name is Paula Manzke. I have been the Care Coordinator at Always Best Care since 2017. I have one son, Andrew, who lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I have one twin brother who is an Oncologist. He was in private practice for many years; however, for the past few years, he has been a professor at the University of Mississippi where he is teaching medical students about Oncology. I have been a licensed social worker since 1982. I graduated from the University of Mississippi and did some post graduate work at the University of Tennessee in Memphis, TN. Over the span of my career, I have worked predominately in the field of medical social work with an emphasis on geriatric care and concerns. This included working in nursing homes, an acute care hospital as a case manager and discharge planner, a mental health center as a caseworker and a hospice and home health as a social worker. It has been my honor to work with the elderly and their families over the past 40 years when they have needed it the most by providing direction, support and kindness during some of their most difficult struggles.
