Clare Oaks Retirement Community Appoints Senior Living Veteran As New Executive Director

BARTLETT, Ill., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Beth Welch has been named as new executive director for Clare Oaks,, a continuing care retirement community in Bartlett, Ill.  It was announced today by Mick Feauto, senior director of operations management, Life Care Services, the management company for Clare Oaks.  In this role, Welch will oversee the daily operations of the community.

"With nearly 20 years of experience in the senior living industry, Welch will play an integral role in positioning Clare Oaks as the continuing care retirement community of choice in the Chicagoland market," said Feauto. 

Before accepting the position at Clare Oaks, Welch served as administrator at the DuPage County Convalescent Center in Wheaton, Ill.  Here, she provided executive leadership and operational guidance for the county-owned skilled nursing and sub-acute 360 bed rehabilitation center.  Prior to that, she served as assistant administrator and director of social services for LifeLink Corporation Healthcare Division in Bensenville, Ill.  Welch also held positions at HomeCorp Management Inc. and the Ritz Carlton Hotel, both located in Philadelphia.

From independent and assisted living to skilled nursing and memory care, Clare Oaks provides its residents with superior care and service built on the foundation of mind, body and spirit inspired by its founder the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Third Order of St. Francis. In fact, recently, the community's skilled nursing care center received a coveted Medicare four-star rating for outstanding health inspections, staffing and quality measures.

"We chose Welch for this position because she has a proven ability to effectively motivate and manage others," said Michael D. Hovde, Jr., president of the Board of Directors of Clare Oaks.  "We are fortunate to have someone with Welch's extensive background and successful track record to help elevate the community's profile in the senior living industry and the surrounding area."

Welch serves on several local boards, including the Long-Term Care Advisory Committee at the College of DuPage where she is also an adjunct part-time faculty member.  She received her bachelor's degree in business administration in marketing from Loyola University in Baltimore, MD., and holds a dual master's degree in management and public health from Benedictine University in Lisle, Ill.

Located at 825 Carillon Dr. in Bartlett, Ill., Clare Oaks is a continuing care retirement community with 325 residents who live in a variety of apartments and cottages for independent living, residences for assisted living and memory support care, or a skilled nursing center where they can receive short-term rehabilitation services and skilled nursing care.
