Colleen Vincent

Executive Director

I am from Ravena, New York.

I have been working at The Eliot at Catskill for over 6 years.

I graduated from Russell Sage College in Troy, New York, and have been in healthcare for the past 7 years.

My focus is acting as a community liaison and intake.

My hobbies are baking and art

I enjoy wine or a Bloody Mary.

My favorite movie is “One Fine Day.”

I love my residents and the positive connections I make every day within our community.

The best tip that I give to prospective residents and families is that adjustment is a process we specialize in. It’s okay to be overwhelmed.

What I most enjoy the unknown and the new tasks they everyday brings.

The best tip that I give to prospective residents and their families is that you want to make sure they’ll be well cared for and are also looking for a good fit for their lifestyle and personality. The distance to you or other relatives might be an important consideration as well, but most important is that you want them to feel like this is their home.

My role in the company is an RN it is significant to the company because any resident that needs to go on the LHCSA or the ALP program needs to have an assessment and an assessment can only be done by a nurse.

I like my specific role because I am the nurse at the facility and the only one who can assess residents and get them onto the programs for their safety.

In my spare time I like to travel.

I really do not have a favorite superhero or cartoon character I am very busy with work and family so I never really thought about it.

Erin Williams

Med Room

What your role is and why it is significant to the company? I am the medication room supervisor. I make sure all of the Resident get their medications when they need it.

What you like about your specific role or about the company as a whole? I have been working for the company for over 15 years passing medications. I love what I do.

A fun fact about you or something you do in your spare time? I have two beautiful daughters who I love to spend my time off with. I specifically love to watch my younger daughter play soccer.

Who is your favorite superhero or cartoon character and why do you like him/her? My Residents are my heroes. I have been so impressed with how they have been handling the pandemic.

This place is a beautiful facility, great upgrades, wonderful staff. The activities and food are great, the residents are always smiling and they make people feel so welcome. My Mother will be going here when it’s time, and I would highly recommend sending your loved one to The Eliot at catskill!!
