Absolut Care Honors Its Veterans

In honor of Veterans Day, the team at Absolut Care of Aurora Park would like to express gratitude to the veterans of the United States who have served our country in war and peace.

The staff at Absolut Care thanks America’s veterans and their families for putting themselves at risk to protect our rights and freedoms. We commemorate those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to safeguard our country and its constituents.

In the spirit of honoring our veterans, we are putting the spotlight on one of our staff’s very own veterans, Dave Krieger.

Honoring Our Own: Dave Krieger of the Activities Department at Absolut Care

Dave Krieger was born on May 10, 1968, in Santa Clara, CA. He enlisted in the Navy SeaBee Reserves from 1988- 1992. Following that, he was part of the Canisius College Army ROTC from 1992 – 1994 and was commissioned to active duty in the Army from 1994 – 1999. Dave served at Fort Hood, Texas in the 4th Infantry Division as a Medical Platoon Leader and Division Medical Supply Officer as well as in Facilities Management at Darnall Army Community Hospital.  

Today, Dave Krieger continues to honor his community by working in the Activities department at Absolut Care of Aurora Park where he is responsible for providing the residents with engaging and therapeutic activity programs. “I’m in charge of the fun,” Dave says. Outside of Absolut Care, he is also a fitness trainer at LA Fitness in Clarence.

Dave is a valued member of the Absolut Care staff who brings value to our residents with his outgoing attitude and extensive academic experience in physical education. Dave earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education from Canisius College and a Master’s degree in Health Services Management from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. Prior to his employment at Aurora Park, he worked in the recreation department at the VA Adult Day HealthCare from 2012 – 2019. 

When he’s not working, Dave enjoys cooking, eating, and watching football.

We thank Dave for his service to the country and his commitment to our residents today!
