Jill is currently the Executive Director at Paisley House. She has two sons, Chase and Dayne, and a beautiful grandson Ajahni. A graduate of Hubbard High School, she attended the St. Elizabeth School of Nursing, as well as Youngstown State University for her BSN. Most of her career has been spent in assisted living, and says it is wild to think she has been a nurse for 30 years. Her mom wanted a nurse in the family, and she was the one!
Addressing misconceptions about assisted living, Jill provided a lot of helpful information when it comes to choosing an assisted living facility. All facilities are licensed under residential care facilities in Ohio. They all have their own feeling to them, and their own rules outside of state guidelines, so it's important to make sure that it is the right fit for you and your family. In the state of Ohio, there are 731 facilities with monthly costs of $1500-8000. It's imperative to do the research to ensure it's the best fit for budget.
Her best advice: show up unannounced, seek referrals, make sure you're aware they can meet the level of care you need.
