Episode Summary

In this episode, I have the pleasure of speaking with Alice Latino. We initially met fourteen years ago when she was the Regional Director at Emeritus Assisted Living; we collaborated together and led several workshops for the team, as well as other teams at Emeritus.

Even as a very small child, Alice has always had an incredible love for the elderly. Her relationship with her grandparents is something she has always cherished and it truly shaped her life into one of gratitude and a desire to help. She brought this passion with her throughout her life and launched it into a career to make a difference in the lives of Seniors. With an MBA from the University of Alabama and a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Montevallo, her love and dedication to the lives of Seniors brought her to work with Emeritus Senior Living. Serving in various capacities for over seventeen years, including Vice President of Operations, she positively impacted both the quality of care delivered and the profit metrics within her Division’s sixty properties and over 5,000 units.

In 2004 she cofounded with her husband Heavenly Care Home Health and Heavenly Care Moving. With twenty years experience in healthcare management and leadership roles, Alice has a very unique background. Listen on as Alice shares some insight from her vast leadership experience and together we exchange some ideas that you can begin implementing right away
