  • A full time registered nurse that has been trained and certified in assisted living leadership. The RN manages the assisted living. The RN provides training and direction for cares for the residents.
  • A full time licensed practical nurse that works closely with the registered nurse and aides to insure care, communicate with the family and physicians.
