Please join the Board of Trustees in welcoming Dean J. Fredrickson as the Executive Director of the University Mound Ladies Home (UMLH) effective June 13, 2011. Dean brings over 20 years of experience working in senior living, and he is deeply committed to those who serve this community, and to our nonprofit mission of providing excellent, affordable care. He will join Katie Brown, Director of Resident Services, and Christa Williams, MSW and Coordinator of the Hospice and Palliative Care Program, as a member of our management team.
John Fecondo, who graciously agreed to serve as Executive Director from 2009 to 2001, successfully managed a period of growth that included many improvements in both resident care and facilities. The Board extends a heartfelt thank you to John, who continued to contribute to the Home’s success by returning to his previous role as a member of the Board of Trustees until his sudden death in April 2011.
For more than 125 years, UMLH has been providing high-quality, compassionate, and affordable assisted living for older women. We provide a beautiful home for residents from diverse backgrounds and an alternative to board-and-care facilities for those who want a higher level of socialization. We strive to promote aging in place through our Hospice and Palliative Care program, which is open to all.
