Chandler Way was founded by Nancy Scott, R.N., C.A.L.M. in 2009. A Dallas native, her nursing background includes psychiatric and oncology nursing in several of Dallas' finest hospitals. Prior to opening Chandler Way, Ms. Scott worked as a full time hospice nurse for 11 years in the Dallas area.
Chandler Way was named for Kassie Mae Kelton Chandler, Nancy's maternal grandmother who died when Nancy was only 9 months old in 1948. Kassie, age 68, was a Dallas Deputy Sheriff and was the first female law officer in the State of Texas to be killed in the line of duty. She is honored on a memorial at City Hall in Dallas, at two memorials in Austin and one in Washington, D.C. Born on a Wisconsin farm to a Scottish father and Irish mother whose roots extend back to the mid 1600's of Colonial America and the American Revolution, she succeeded in becoming a woman "ahead of her time". The memory of her legacy of love, caring, commitment and service to others continues at Chandler Way.
Ms. Scott maintains her assisted living manager certification with annual continued education training provided by the Texas Organization of Residential Care Homes.
Chandler Way is a licensed Type "B" Assisted Living and an Alzheimer's Certified facility by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services.
