ANAHEIM, Calif. — Kisco Senior Living has hired Patricia Gustin as executive director of Emerald Court, a seniors housing community in Anaheim. Following her hiring, Gustin moved into the community to ride out the COVID-19 pandemic from inside.
Gustin previously worked at another Kisco community in Fresno, nearly 300 miles away. Knowing it is critical for directors to know the team members they lead and the residents they care for, she decided to move into the community to live there among the residents, according to Kisco.
Since starting at Emerald Court, Gustin has primarily focused on adapting her teams to meet high standards for new community procedures, revising responsibilities of team members to fill any gaps, and restructuring what her residents’ lives will look like in this new environment.
