When Wilson Muchemi joined the newly constructed Issaquah Memory Care community, he had no idea the impact he would make on those around him. Wilson is no stranger to caretaking. Even before he came to the US from Africa, Wilson says he had a calling to care for older adults. Now, after being with Fieldstone for nine months, coworkers, residents, and families have selected Wilson as the Fieldstone employee of the year—an honor he humbly accepts.
