Allison Lyda is the DON of Brookside and joined the Brookside family in August of 2016. She has been a licensed nurse since 2009 starting in family medicine. She was an ER nurse for several years before making the switch to long term care management that was prompted by a move to SW Kansas for her husband’s job. She enjoys being able to make a difference in the lives of our residents and loves building relationships with them. She takes pride in her work and was successful at improving her last facility in the areas of: state survey results, star rating, resident and staff satisfaction and retention of staff.

She is a mother of four children who keep her very busy: Abbagail-10, Andrew-6, Maddison-4 and Austin-2.5. She doesn’t have much spare time, but when she does she enjoys crafting, being outdoors, spending time with family and friends and doing spur of the moment activities. She feels blessed and honored to be part of the Brookside family.
