A Passion for Senior Care

Eric Hayes, the founder and executive director at Cardinal Senior Living was first introduced to the senior living industry working at a local nursing home facility his sophomore year while attending Radford University.  It was during this time that he was able to develop an appreciation and passion for senior care and was intrigued by a career that was set to serve and assist those in need.  He then entered a training program that led to obtaining a Nursing Home Administrator license as well as completed the requirements leading to a BBA in Finance from Radford University. 

Since obtaining his license, Eric now has over 14 years professional experience working in the long-term care industry including 12 years acting in an executive role for multiple memory care, assisted living and nursing home communities throughout Virginia and Florida.  He has successfully led multiple communities to their highest occupancy rates by ensuring the best standards of care, upholding resident interests and working closely with families.  He has been directly involved as an advocate for the Alzheimer’s Association for over 12 years, once serving on the Central and Western Virginia Walk Committee and is also a trained Alzheimer’s support group facilitator.  As a Certified Dementia Care Practitioner, he has extensive experience working with individuals with dementia and is committed to ensuring the highest quality of life for those he serves.
