About Senior Living Advisor, Beth Friesen
Beth Friesen has been a Registered Nurse since 1992. After gaining experience in both critical care and maternal/fetal medicine, she spent 21 years as a nurse case manager for industrial injuries. For almost nine of those years, she successfully owned and operated an independent consulting firm whose primary focus was medical case management services.
A culmination of events over the last decade led her to her new path: Oasis Senior Advisors. Her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and passed away in 2014. She has stood where many of the people she helps are standing right now. She deeply desires to use her knowledge as a nurse, as well as the path she traveled with her mom, to help ease the stress that comes with this kind of transition. She looks forward to walking with you and your loved ones to find the next place for them to call home.
Beth has a particular passion for Alzheimer’s/Dementia education and elder care. She enjoys teaching, speaking and writing. She and her husband are lifelong Nebraska residents and have three children currently in high school and college.
