Joseph G. Javier
Joseph is the Executive Administrator for the Generation at Oakton Campus. At Oakton, the Administrator is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the facility and working closely with residents, their families and the staff in every department at Oakton Pavilion and Oakton Arms. The Administrator’s objective: ensure that Oakton’s residents receive the best care possible.
Joseph began his career in long-term care as a certified nursing assistant while going to school full-time. After he graduated, he worked in Social Services, moving up to Administrator of a multi-facility organization and spending 14 years there. He then joined Generations at Regency in October 2017.
“Here at the Oakton campus, my most important goal is that every single resident is taken care of and provided with great customer service. I want our residents to be healthy, happy and well taken cared of. ”
Joseph also reflected on why he loves working in the health care field: “I know it sounds generic, but I like taking care of people. My mom was a registered nurse for 35 years and my father was an accountant in the banking industry for 25 years. I took the best from both worlds and I apply them to my position.”
Joseph received his Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He then acquired his Master’s in Business Administration from American InterContinental University in Los Angeles.
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, OAKTON ARMS
Starting out in home health, Maria Crocilla has been in healthcare since she was 18 years old. Her career has afforded a wealth of experience in multiple roles including Social Services Discharge Planner and Department Manager, Admissions Director and Supportive Living Program Director.
Maria went into healthcare many years ago to change the way society thinks about placing their loved ones into a long-term community. She enjoys assisting prospective families in the process of picking a facility, encouraging them to always involve the resident in making the right decision for their loved one.
As Oakton Arms’ Executive Director, Maria’s personal motto is: “I want to make sure that our residents live an engaging and rewarding life in our community. We are here to serve your family member and make their needs and wants known. We want to make them happy in living a rewarding life.”
DIRECTOR OF NURSING
Kristina Rodriguez, Director of Nursing of Generations at Oakton Pavillion, has been a nurse for 8 years. She began her healthcare career as a Registered Nurse at our Elmwood Park-based facility, progressing through numerous roles there including Wound Care Coordinator, Assistant Director of Nursing, and Director of Nursing before becoming the Director of Nursing at Generations at Oakton Pavillion.
Kristina’s current role entails overseeing the entire nursing department, from clinical operations to staffing; she monitors nurses, Certified Nursing Assistants and the clinical leadership team to ensure a quality standard of care.
Her personal impetus to get involved in healthcare was her grandfather whom, according to Kristina, practically raised her. As a cancer patient, he was attended at home by a nurse and CNA, inspiring Kristina to go into nursing to make a difference, too.
“Generations at Oakton Pavillion is special because it is a family environment. The community is just as wonderful as the facility; when I come here, I feel a family atmosphere.”
