2018 Chamber of Commerce Nonprofit of the Year
Nancy is an LPN with 42 years of experience working with the elderly. She began her career at Lord of Life 25 years ago as our staff nurse, and has served as Director of the Adult Day Health Center for many of those years. Her passion for working with the elderly began when she was in high school. She has active memberships with NYSADSA, The Network in Aging, The Alzheimer’s Association and The Caregiver Coalition. Nancy takes advantage of ongoing training and has certification in Supervision and Management, Dementia Care and CPR. She lives in Marilla with her husband and enjoys spending time with her children and grandchildren.
We believe that the staff in Lord of Life's Adult Day Health Center is our greatest asset. Our Activities Director and her staff, the personal care assistants, our nurses, drivers and office staff are here for one purpose - to help your loved one thrive in a safe and nurturing environment. Most of our Adult Center staff have worked here for over 10 years. Ask them why they do this work and they will tell you it's simple - they love the people. Every day brings new and unexpected challenges and joys as we greet new participants and help them feel at home, even as we say good bye to others. It truly is a bittersweet work that we do together.
All staff are required to pass background checks and to maintain current certification in First Aid, CPR and other regulatory training requirements. In addition, the staff receives regular updates on best nutrition and personal care practices. If you have any questions about the qualifications of our staff, do not hesitate to ask. Perhaps the best way we can describe our staff is to say that any of us at Lord of Life would be confident placing our own loved one in their care!
