Candle Light Cove Announces New Wellness Director

Candle Light Cove Assisted Living & Alzheimer’s Care has announced the appointment of Barry F. Morgan, RN, as the community’s health services director. Morgan joined the CLC team in mid-May, and spent the first two weeks working with outgoing health services director Meg Borders, RN (who left the position to move closer to her family in New Jersey), to effect a smooth transition that promotes the continued wellbeing of the eldercare community’s 32 residents.

A resident of Easton, Morgan has an extensive background in nursing, both in direct care and management positions.  Most recently he has served William Hill Manor as Quality Assurance Coordinator and Nurse Manager, and Genesis Elder Care (Corsica Hills and Salisbury) in various supervisory positions as well as IV therapist and long-term care provider. His career also has included nursing positions at several Baltimore hospitals and care facilities, including Franklin Square, Francis Scott Key, Sinai and Levindale Hebrew; on the Eastern Shore, he held varied nursing positions at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury and Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin. 

“We are very pleased to have attracted a candidate with such a diverse background in health care and in particular, with so much nursing experience in working with the elderly,” commented Robin Monahan, Candle Light Cove’s executive director.

Candle Light Cove, now in its fifth year of operation, provides two programs of residential care for elderly persons – Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s Care –each accommodating 16 residents in private suites with communal areas for dining, socializing and activities. Located  at the end of West Earle Avenue (in Easton’s Historic District adjacent to Memorial Hospital), Candle Light Cove is licensed by the State of Maryland for Levels I-III of care and is known for its highly individualized approach to maintaining residents’ well-being .

“I am extremely enthusiastic about joining Candle Light Cove, and in particular, I’m looking forward to mentoring and ‘team-building’ our care management staff,” says Morgan of his new position.
