MEET THE ADMINISTRATOR
Whether on the job or off, Allison's focus is all about family - her work family or her own family - she is truly a person who cares about others.
After almost a decade on the job, which also included being Director of Social Services, Allison rose to the role of West Suburban's Administrator knowing her building well at every service level.
"West Suburban feels like home to me," Allison said. "I love the environment and the staff - I'd have to say I've loved everything about it since Day #1."
Her goal for West Suburban is to continually reinforce person-centered, individualized care.
"What that vision means to me," Allison explained, "is to meet each resident's expectation of what home is to them, and that they will find what they're looking for right here. This is a warm and cozy environment where residents can visit with their families and feel comfortable.
"We are also in a great neighborhood with fabulous views of the lake behind us providing motivation to go outside--enjoy our patios and walking paths. My hope is that others embrace West Suburban the way I do, and along the way also see the good-hearted people who work here, and the amazing job they do each and every day," she added.
Allison, who resides in Downers Grove with her husband, Jeff, have two children ages 9 and 4. During leisure hours, they enjoy their children's activities that include baseball, gymnastics, basketball and ballet.
