CROSSVILLE – Dominion Senior Living of Crossville, a faith-based senior living community, has announced the hiring of several key members of its management team ahead of its opening this summer.
Five directors – well known in the Cumberland County area and with more than 100 years of combined experience in health care – have been named to help lead the assisted living and memory care facility and include Misty Gallagher, LPN, wellness director; Jenny Webb, business office director; Robert Judd, maintenance director; Kimberly Dixon, life enrichment director; and Patricia Rogers, dining services director. Each staff member will be under the direction of Executive Director Vickie Wilson, who was hired in February.
All have experience in senior living, Dominion officials said. The team will collaborate to fulfill the daily mental, physical and spiritual needs of each resident.
“All of our employees are chosen based not only on their experience, but also on their level of dedication to serving seniors,” Wilson said. “Without devoted, mission-driven employees, we would not be nearly as successful at what we do. We know that each of these directors will make the residents a priority and treat them as family. Their teamwork is what will make this environment inviting and meaningful to our residents and their families, and I know their passion for and knowledge of long-term care will elevate the services we will provide.”
Gallagher is a Crossville native and has more than 13 years of nursing experience, most in the long-term care field. She has been certified as a wound care associate by the American Board of Wound Management for 10 years.
Webb previously spent five years working in a medical office and has eight years’ experience as a business office director.
Dixon is another Crossville native who has spent more than five years in life enrichment for seniors and is a licensed activity coordinator. She has worked with seniors who have different care needs and has extensive knowledge about residents with memory impairments.
Judd has decades of experience in maintenance starting from a young age, and has specialized in long-term care settings for 11 years.
And rounding out the team is another Cumberland County native, Rogers, who will lead the dining team. She has over 30 years’ experience in long-term care food service and a dietary services certification from the University of Florida.
These new staff members are working on- and off-site as the community completes construction. Residents are expected to move in this summer. The community will offer 40 memory care apartments. In addition, the community offers a continuum of care utilizing professionally trained LPNs and caregivers available 24 hours a day.
“Our team’s professional experience and personal mission to work with seniors will make a huge difference in the lives of the residents and families we serve,” Wilson said. “They have bonded as we prepare to open, and I believe the team will become even stronger as residents move in. We can’t wait to serve families together in the Crossville area and show them how we honor God through service to seniors.”
Dominion first announced its $5 million Crossville project in June 2015. The community features all-inclusive monthly rental rates without a length-of-stay commitment and includes laundry service, transportation services, three home-style meals a day, Wi-Fi, 24-7 surveillance monitoring, personalized care services, life enrichment program, on-site medical assistance, therapy services and more.
