Born in Damariscotta, Drucilla Day Beal felt like she was coming home when she accepted her new job as director of nursing at The Lincoln Home. Passionate about making a difference in people’s lives, she changed career paths and earned her degree in nursing in 2003. For 13 years, she worked at Mid Coast Hospital, then moved to Mid Coast Senior Health Center for the last five years.
She loves interacting with seniors, helping them lead their best lives, and loves being an advocate when needed. Her choice of The Lincoln Home was an easy one, with the beautiful surroundings and the small, intimate environment that has the feeling of family, both with the residents and other members of the staff.
Beal’s roots run deep in this area. Her grandfather was the noted artist Maurice Jake Day. Last week during a resident art show, Beal shared some of Jake Day’s drawings and prints with the residents, and shared some of her own colorful creations in yarn. She and her husband live on a farm in Woolwich with a llama, a horse, chickens and alpacas.
She can be reached at 563-3350 or email@example.com
