Our staff of professionals is trained in everything from the latest medical care and therapies to healthy and delicious meal preparation. Yet we make room for compassionate connection with residents to take precedence over the necessities of our job descriptions.
We are skilled professionals, yes. And we are here to connect with you in the spontaneous moments that make your life (and ours) more meaningful.
Executive Director: Deb Oaks
Deb attended Ohio University and Northern Kentucky University graduating with a degree in social work and a minor in education. She has spent over 20 years working with seniors.
"My career has provided me with a vast knowledge and understanding of the needs of our seniors. I also rely on my experience with the Council on Aging, skilled nursing, hospice, geriatric psych and leadership roles within senior living communities. My goal is to treat every resident as I would my parents and to provide families with support. After the death of my parents, being part of a senior living community fills a void in my heart and gives me true joy."
Deb lives with her husband, David and her two dogs, Cricket and Parker. Parker is a registered therapy dog who often accompanies her to work. Deb's hobbies include travel, painting landscapes and exercise.
Community Relations Director: Lisa Hasselbeck Ruberg
Lisa attended the University of Cincinnati and is a graduate of Mother of Mercy. She's a recipient of the Circle of Excellence and Platinum Senior Living awards and is a lifelong resident of the Cincinnati area. Lisa began her long career in senior living as an activity director, and has had the benefit of having two family members live as residents in her communities until their passings.
"I’ve known for a long time I wanted to work with seniors to help improve their quality of life, their health and to make them feel welcome and less isolated. I remember a very timid widow who came to look at an independent living apartment. It was what I call a God Spot moment: she was really nervous about making a move, until she saw that the apartment bore the number of her husband’s badge. He was a career policeman. She said even now that Bill was protecting her. We love residents into our community, creating the bridge for residents and families during what can be a stressful time." Lisa and her husband have three children and three grandchildren, and they all share a love of sports.
