New Leadership Named for Two Chicago Area Senior Living Communities

LOMBARD, IL–Beacon Hill announces Bridgette Walshe as its new executive director. In her new position, Walshe is responsible for overseeing day-to-day operations of the entire senior living community, which features 360 maintenance-free residential living apartment homes, and a variety of services and amenities for its more than 500 residents. As a Life Care community, Beacon Hill also offers on-site health services, memory support and skilled nursing suites.

Walshe comes to Beacon Hill with more than 15 years of leadership experience in senior living and health care. She most recently served as executive director at a Dallas-area senior living community, where she oversaw operations and marketing. Prior to that, she held director and administrative roles at several other retirement communities throughout Texas, where she provided award-winning health care services.

“Beacon Hill has a lot to offer the dynamic population of older adults, and I’m excited to use my operational experience and passion for serving seniors to strengthen our position in the area,” Walshe said. “We’ll work to build on our reputation for providing excellent lifestyle options, wellness services and culture of hospitality to everyone who lives and works at Beacon Hill.”

As Walshe fills this position at Beacon Hill, Blaire Goldstein continues her leadership role as the new executive director at Oak Trace, a sister community located in Downers Grove. Goldstein will oversee the current $150 million redevelopment and expansion of the community which currently features 247 residential living apartment homes and a variety of services and amenities.

“Blaire is a strong leader who has made a lasting impact on Beacon Hill,” said Amy LaCroix, regional operations director at Lifespace Communities, the parent company of Oak Trace and Beacon Hill. “We look forward to having Blaire’s leadership at Oak Trace as the community undergoes a significant expansion and redevelopment project.”
