Belger oversees the day-to-day operations of The Beacon, which provides a carefree lifestyle for residents so both the residents and their loved ones can live a fulfilling life. The facility has a capacity of 120 residents and 10 nurses are on staff to provide the best possible care 24 hours a day.
“I’m just trying to build relationships with the families and the residents, and also get to know the staff,” Belger said. “I also want to build relationships in the community.”
Belger is familiar with the area, being a native of Pensacola, and is excited about her new position. The Beacon also has a new Director of Nursing as Toni Damiano was recently promoted to the spot.

The Beacon also offers restaurant-style dining three times a day, and a wellness team is available to residents in which the staff works with residents, the family and medical professionals to develop customized- care programs.
A day stay and guest stay program are also offered by The Beacon. The program provides a safe and secure place for a loved one to be if a primary caregiver needs time to take of his or her own personal needs for a few hours or just to get a well-deserved vacation.
One of the other options offered by The Beacon is memory care, which is a specialized area of assisted living. Patients dealing with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia receive care beyond what traditional assisted-living facilities are able to provide. The memory care program addresses the needs of the whole person.
