Spring Hills Senior Communities is proud to welcome Shain Cohen as the Executive Director of our new, state-of-the-art community, Spring Hills Livingston Assisted Living. Located at 346 East Cedar Street in Livingston, NJ, 07039, Spring Hills Livingston is part of the Spring Hills family, a company considered to be an innovator in the field of senior living, setting new standards for hospitality, service, and comprehensive, holistic care. Cohen brings a lifetime of experience in the continuing care sector to the community as she began volunteering in nursing homes at the young age of 14 and has since worked in most aspects of senior care. Cohen’s career in senior healthcare spans a total of 30 years; from being an Activity Director, a successful sales and marketing Director; a Regional Director of Business Development for a Hospice provider and an Assisted Living operator for the past decade.  Her hands-on experience within the senior living industry is a major differentiator for Spring Hills Livingston, positioning the Senior Living destination as a resource. 

Cohen was the ideal choice to serve as Executive Director for many reasons, but her full embrace of Spring Hills’ culture stood out.  She supports the Signature Touches philosophy, the company’s holistic approach to offering individualized care and services designed to meet the needs and preferences of residents and clients. She also shares Spring Hills’ deep commitment to exceeding expectations and delivering high quality care.

Cohen looks forward to delivering Springs Hills’ industry-leading care to residents in this new, elegant, well-designed setting. “I am thrilled to join the team here at Spring Hills Livingston. As someone who has been working in this field for most of my life, I have seen how Spring Hills has truly redefined senior living. Caring with a Commitment to Quality™ is at the core of everything we do here, and our approach enables seniors to live their best lives.” She continues, “I am so grateful to be working for a growing company dedicated to improving care across the healthcare continuum, and I look forward to partnering with the local community. We prioritize engagement, activity, and family connection while our holistic, inclusive approach guides every health care decision we make. I am excited to work with the fantastic team here at Spring Hills Livingston to ensure the comfort and well-being of our residents.”

Alexander Markowits, President/CEO of Spring Hills Senior Communities, comments, “Shain will be a tremendous leader for our new Spring Hills Livingston community. She is a respected professional in the field, and her compassion, experience, and commitment to our residents is unparalleled. Her philosophy around senior living, wellness, health, and empowerment aligns perfectly with the mission of Spring Hills, and we look forward to working with her at our new residence in Livingston, NJ.”

Cohen is currently building a strong team to serve the residents at Spring Hills Livingston. “I am hiring everyone from the Director of Nursing to housekeepers. These will all be individuals who are senior advocates and hospitality focused,” she said. “Our goal is to have employees who will champion the best quality of life for our seniors, so those candidates need to have certain qualities, education, backgrounds, and experience. We will be heavily focused on training above and beyond the base requirements to ensure that we are providing the most up-to-date tools and knowledge to serve our residents.”

Prior to joining Spring Hills, Cohen served as Executive Director for a 199 bed Assisted Living and Memory Care Community. Cohen also served as Executive Director of Brookdale Senior Living where she was responsible for attaining Advanced Standing and the coveted Bronze Award for Commitment to Quality. She holds a BA in Geriatric Psychology from Rutgers University and an MS in Management, Business, and Marketing from Thomas Edison State University. She is a state-certified Assisted Living Administrator, a Certified Dementia Practitioner, and a certified Yoga teacher.
