Peggy Faught, Executive Director, RN C
My name is Peggy Faught and I am the Executive Director at Delnor Glen Senior Living. I am also a registered nurse. I have worked at Delnor Glen for 8 years. Initially when I came to the Glen, it was as the Resident Care Director and my main objective was to develop the personal care team. During my first year here, I also developed the personal care program, lead the initiative on person centered care and assisted in obtaining our Assisted Living licensure. We were one of the first 2 facilities in the state to receive licensing. I worked in that capacity for a little over 5 years then was promoted to the role of Executive Director. In this role I am responsible for the operational performance and resident and family satisfaction in both the assisted living and the town home community.
I live in Geneva with my husband of 25 years Michael, my daughter Michelle and her daughter Mackenzie and sons Michael and Nicholas. We have lived here for 19 years. I have an associate degree in nursing from Waubonsee Community College. I also have an associate degree from College of DuPage in liberal arts. I hold a certificate in Rehabilitation, Gerontology, Assisted Living Nursing and I am a certified Marketing Professional. Currently I am working on a certification for leadership, management and operations.
I have been a nurse for 28 years and have a very diverse background. I worked at Loyola University Medical Center for 13 years where I had the vast majority of my hospital training. I worked in Med/Surg, an Intermediate Care Unit and with Hematology - Oncology patients. I worked for an allergist and did school nursing at the elementary level when my children were young. Working with seniors was my first job in a LTC facility. When my children were in school all day, I went back to work FT again with seniors. I became the Director of Nursing in 2 different facilities for a number of years prior to coming to Delnor Glen.
I enjoy being with my family and friends and have a special love of flowers and gardening. I love to read and spend time with my grandaughter Mackenzie.
