Linda Dailey, executive director at Glenwood Community, and Teresa Billingsley, director of nursing, successfully completed the Certified Executive for Assisted Living (CEAL) certification program offered through the Ohio Centers for Assisted Living and passed the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB) Residential Care/Assisted Living Administrators Examination to earn the CEAL designation.

CEAL is a comprehensive certification program designed to elevate the skills and professionalism of assisted living administrators in Ohio by providing a national certification along with Ohio's most comprehensive state specific training.

The CEAL Training Course is a combination of interactive classroom training, guided self-study and hands-on clinical learning.

Glenwood is owned and operated by United Church Homes, a national senior living provider that operates 12 senior living communities in Ohio, Michigan and Tennessee.

Dailey has worked at Glenwood since April 2017. Prior to joining the United Church Homes community, she served as administrator of Golden Living in Morgantown, CEO of Fox Run Center for Children and Adolescents and deputy commissioner of operations at the Bureau for Behavioral Health and Health Facilities in West Virginia.

Teresa BillingsleyBillingsley joined United Church Homes as Glenwood’s director of nursing in February 2014. Prior to that, she was director of operations at Marietta Home Health and Hospice, an Amedisys partner, for 11 years. She also worked at Marietta Memorial Hospital and has been a registered nurse for 22 years.

Since 2013, OCAL has trained more than 100 students nationally who have earned their CEAL designation. The program is designed for experienced assisted living executives looking for a competitive edge in the marketplace or those interested in obtaining the necessary skills to successfully lead an assisted living building in Ohio or nationwide.

Although Ohio does not currently require certification for assisted living administrators, CEAL has aligned its program curriculum with the NAB Residential Care/Assisted Living Administrators Licensing Examination so credentialed assisted living executives in Ohio meet national competency standards and are well positioned for any future changes to Ohio's RCF administrator requirements. For more information about CEAL, contact the OCAL at 614-436-4154.

Glenwood Community offers care-free residential and assisted living on a scenic campus with walking trails. Independent living options include apartments and cottages, restaurant-style dining and health and wellness programs. The Pines Assisted Living won the Marietta Times’ 2017 Readers’ Choice Awards, and the campus earned Holleran’s Highest Honors for resident engagement and satisfaction in 2017.
