Spirit Lake, MN, May 18, 2014 --( Keelson Harbour Senior Living, a Vista Prairie community, is pleased to welcome Jean Greeley as Executive Direcor. Greeley brings significant experience in senior care to Keelson Harbour, most recently having spent the past eight years as Executive Director at Prairie Hills in Fairfield, Iowa. During her time at Prairie Hills, Greeley managed the construction of its senior living facility and led the community’s expansion from 50 units to 74 units where she reached and maintained 100 percent occupancy within two years of the expansion’s opening. Greeley’s appointment is a clear indication of the goals and expectations Vista Prairie has set for Keelson Harbour.

“On behalf of Keelson Harbour and Vista Prairie Communities, I am thrilled to welcome Jean Greeley as the new Executive Director,” said Morris Knopf, president of Vista Prairie Communities. “We look forward to her leadership in the growth of Keelson Harbour and its commitment to the community as we continue to bring our services to surrounding seniors. Greeley will be a critical component in ensuring a vibrant and homelike environment for residents.”

As Executive Director, Greeley will oversee a community that provides 66 assisted living and memory care apartments to Spirit Lake seniors. She will be responsible for the overall services and activities at the campus including hiring, supervising and training staff, family services, resident well-being, and regulatory compliance. Greeley will also play a critical role in bringing Keelson Harbour’s new addition to completion and stabilizing its occupancy.

“It’s an exciting time to join Keelson Harbour,” Greeley said. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to lead change and help create an even better quality of life for our residents,” Greeley said. “The work of this organization is improving the concept of senior living and I am delighted to be a part of it. I look forward to building a caring, compassionate team who shares the same vision.”

Greely is well known in the Spirit Lake area for her unique one-on-one approach to senior care and creation of tenant-centered cultures. Her ability to build trusting relationships with residents, families, employees, the community, and other health care providers sets her apart in the field and has led to her success. Prior to her work at Prairie Hills, she held various management and leadership roles within senior care including Administrator at Christian Homes in Lincoln, Nebraska and Executive Director at Covenant Care in Los Angeles.
