Elaine Jeffries, Director at Rock Cove, first joined Rock Cove Assisted Living as a caregiver in November 2000. Her strong interest in supporting the philosophy of assisted living and eagerness to learn led her to assuming additional responsiblities as a Medication Aide and Lead Personal Services Assistant. She was later promoted to Resident Care Coordinater, Activity Director and Assistant director. In 2009, Elaine began providing short-term on-site assistance to Directors at other CCL managed properties. Her strong communication and team-building skills made Elaine ideal fit for a new position that CCL later created to support newly acquired communities.
As a Regional Director of Operations for CCL, Elaine provided techincal support, training and other on-site assistance to CCL managed communities. Her focus areas included customer, employee and community relations; quality assurance and general compliance. Now 16 years later, Elaine is excited to return to her home building Rock Cove Assisted Living as their Director.
Elaine is a certified instructor for Geriatric Wellness, Fundamentals of Caregiving (Washington), CPR/First Aid, and Mental Health & Dementia (Washington). Her public service includes volunteering for schools, EMT work for Skamania County EMS, Hospice, the Chamber of Commerce, and Medical Reserve Corp.
