Patrick DiPaolo joined Generations Healthcare Network in January, 2019 as Administrator at Oakton Arms and Oakton Pavillion.
With over 20 years of diverse health care management experience, Patrick most recently was the Administrator for Lexington of Schaumburg, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center. Prior to that, he served as Administrator for Rosewood Care Center of Inverness. He earned a bachelor’s degree ion psychology from Indiana University.
“What stands out about Generations is the sincere concern shown by staff for the well-being of residents,” Patrick shared. “Each and every one of our residents is treated with such kindness, compassion and sensitivity.”
An avid New York Yankees fan who grew up in Flossmoor, Patrick plans on building upon Oakton’s three decades as a trusted community resource for health care…right off the bat.
“I look forward to creating an environment that entices the community to visit and learn about our services,” he explained. “We want to strengthen Oakton Arms and Oakton Pavillion’s role as the premier health care provider in Des Plaines, Mt. Prospect and the surrounding suburbs.”
Gigi is the Admissions Director of Generations at Oakton Pavillion. Her career in the healthcare industry spans over eight years, from Minimal Data Set Coordinator to Durable Medical Equipment Coordinator to working on hospice before coming into her current role. Additionally, with over ten years’ experience in customer service, Gigi feels that she is “where I feel I’m supposed to be.”
Another thing Gigi loves about her job is that it allows her to be as close as she can to patients and their families without working on the clinical side of skilled nursing care.
“Making patients and their families feel safe and comfortable is what makes the difference in these hard times,” she says. “It feels good to give them that reassurance. Once they come to Generations at Oakton Pavillion and see that it is what we said it would be, that’s a really good feeling.”
Executive Director, Oakton Arms
Kelly Rentas is the Executive Director of Generations at Oakton Arms. From day-to-day facility operations to individual interactions, Kelly ensures that residents of the community are getting the care promised to them. Having personally moved every resident into the facility herself, she feels a special bond with both residents and their families.
Her staff does the same. With an amazing Activities Director who perpetually has fun activities planned, to a helpful and welcoming front-desk staff, to a hard-working housekeeping and maintenance crew, to the compassionate nurses and caregivers, she affirms that each department captains their facet of care with aplomb.
Priding itself on a intimate and homelike setting, Oakton Arms is a wonderful community for senior living. According to Kelly, when families entrust their loved ones to the care of the facility, they feel that their loved one is with family.
“I am only a phone call away at all times of day and night; I want every family to know that I will take care of your loved one every single day.”
