Dear Residents, Families, and Associates of Drake Terrace,
I am sending you this letter to share some news regarding leadership changes at Drake Terrace. I will begin with my personal news. As you know I started at Drake Terrace this March, moving from out of state, and right at the onset of the COVID-19 crisis in our area. Over the past three months, we have overcome unprecedented times together as a team and community. It has been a challenging time to say the least, but also a time of great bonding, growth, and creativity. Over the last three months, I have had time to reflect and have gained a new perspective in my personal life. After careful consideration, my wife and I have made a difficult decision to move out of the area to pursue other endeavors. I will be resigning as Executive Director effective August 4th. The Kisco Home office and I are working together to ensure a smooth transition and to support the day to day operations until my departure.
I would like to inform you that Robin Schepps, Resident Relations Manager, is no longer employed with us. We wish her well in her future endeavors and thank her for three years of service. We have begun a recruitment effort for the Executive Director and Resident Relations Director positions. I am pleased to announce new members of our management team. We have added an additional
Resident Care Coordinator in our effort to enhance our assisted living and memory care offerings. Loata Taole will be joining our team next week and brings over 15 years of senior living experience. She most recently worked at a senior living community in Corte Madera and looks forward to joining Rowena Johnson and our resident care associates in Assisted Living. We also extended an offer to an Assisted Living Director who will be joining us in July. I will announce her name and information in next week’s announcements once her start date is confirmed. We are excited to introduce you to our new
I look forward to connecting with those of you I see throughout the community for the remainder of my time. Please know that I am here to support your needs and will share more information about our interim support plan next week.
Executive Director, Drake
