Ronald (Ron) Aylward is originally from a small town in Northern Minnesota. Thanks to brutal Minnesota winters, Ron found himself living in Florida at a young age where he dreamed about becoming a surfing champion. When his surfing dreams didn’t pan out he embarked on a journey of knowledge earning Bachelor’s in Business Administration from NYU’s Stern School of Business and continued on to an MBA from Webster University.
His careers took him to the United States Army where he served with honors in campaigns and missions globally. He became an executive with Starbucks Coffee & Tea Company helping grow the brand both internationally and domestically. When a series of life events had him make an abrupt change and cease traveling he found himself making an unexpected career change that he is eternally grateful for. Due to his success in business, he was offered a position in senior living. A position he never saw himself in, but now can’t see himself doing anything else.
Ron is often asked why do you do this? And the answer is clear: “ I was raised primarily by my grandmother and mother. When my grandmother was diagnosed with Dementia, I did the research and visited all the Assisted Living Communities and Memory Care Units and I mean all of them! I thought I did everything I was supposed to in order to take care of her. I was upset and dismayed by what I experienced at each facility. I moved my grandmother four times and that last move was better but they still took away the respect and dignity she deserved. The disease is cruel and robs even the most elegant person of their dignity. What I needed were caregivers that cared and didn’t just punch a clock, had compassion, and love for another person. I couldn’t find it. I was always told it’s just the industry. When my mother was given a similar diagnosis but at a much younger age, I knew I needed to protect and do better for her. I knew I could use my business savvy, compassion, and personal experience to make a change in the industry and I have been doing that ever since. For the past seven years I have been challenging the industry norms and making changes putting residents and their families first. I also sign off and take the time to meet and interview every staff member. I treat the community like a club. Now, Club Chateau. For staff, we are a hard club to get into and you have to earn your status in the club every day. When you do, the rewards come, the residents are properly cared for, nurtured, and treated with respect and dignity.
The Board of Directors at Chateau Madeleine and I have the same vision of compassion, care, and sense of community, and will not accept anything less than the best for your loved ones. They trust me with the keys to the community and responsibility to hand pick the best team to care and love your family members. I see a bit of my own family in every resident I get the honor and privilege to serve and make no mistake, it is an honor to be trusted to care for each resident”.
Ron lives a short distance away in Cocoa Beach with his family and Hunter. I am sure you will see and get to know his family and the Hunter at Chateau Madeline often. Keep an eye out for Ron and his dog Hunter as they walk the hallways, join in activities, and spend time getting to know you.
Hunter is a 2 ½ year old Golden Retriever. He was born on a farm about 20 minutes outside the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota. When Hunter was only 7 weeks old he went into training to be a service dog. Hunter is a Diabetic Alert Dog and he has been trained to comfort people with PTSD and loves making new friends. Hunter will tell you first hand when you meet him that some of his favorite things to do are to enjoy a really good roll in the grass, swim in the ocean, and to play with his toys. Hunter likes to spend the day visiting all his friends at Chateau Madeleine and making “the rounds”. (You will see him strolling down the hallways looking for a friend that will scratch behind his ears).
Hunter enjoys playing basketball, he has yet to make a basket but he is getting close and his favorite football team is the Minnesota Vikings and it is why he wears a Vikings collar. He says it is his birthright being a Vikings fan because he was born in Minnesota. We love Hunter anyways and Hunter is always looking for new friends. Please stop by and see Hunter, he will shake your hand and welcome you to Chateau Madeleine.
