Meet two of our newest staff members, Terry Daly and Diane Judson. Both have copious amounts of experience in the geriatric care industry and we are extremely lucky to have them as a part of our team here at Hancock Hall. Here are a few words from each of them.
Terry Daly: “I chose to get into nursing because I always wanted to do something to be of service to others and help people. I graduated from Norwalk Community College with an Associate degree in Science. I’ve spent the last 27 years of my nursing career at Bethel Health Care Rehab Center in Bethel, CT. I worked as a staff RN on 11-7 and 7-3 shifts for 5 years. I worked as a unit manager on the subacute and rehab units for 10 years and then became the Assistant Director of nursing the last 12 years at BHC. I loved the then privately owned facility. I stayed at BHC during and after the corporate take-over transition for six years but an opportunity arose to work at another family/privately owned facility, Hancock Hall. I already knew some of the staff at Hancock Hall that left BHC over the years and took the opportunity to join the staff as DNS with the thought it would be a wonderful way to end my 40+ year nursing career when I decide to retire. Or when they push me out the door.”
Diane Judson: “I have worked in the post-acute world for many years in various leadership roles. My career experience has been diverse and supported by many of the best leaders in healthcare and organizational systems, all of whom have allowed me to implement my passion for person-centered care. I had found myself, however, moving away from supporting residents, families, and healthcare workers until I joined Filosa and Hancock Hall. Their focus on placing residents, their loved ones, and staff first resonates with me and I am very excited to be part of this organization.”
