Juliet Holt Klinger

Juliet’s desire to improve life for those with dementia and their families began in high school, when she volunteered at a skilled nursing center in her Iowa hometown and felt drawn to seniors with dementia. A gerontologist, she has dedicated her three-decade career to this mission, serving as Brookdale’s senior director of dementia care program development since 2006. Juliet, who has had family members with dementia, participates on expert committees of the Dementia Action Alliance, Pioneer Network for culture change in long-term care, and Argentum, the senior living professional association. She is a sought after speaker for national conferences and health care meetings. Juliet lives in Chicago with her husband Christian and four-legged “daughter” Ruby.
