For the past 20 years, Lou Ricciardi has been keeping our Home financially on track. As Chief Financial Officer, he now oversees the finances for the Seashore Gardens Foundation, Seashore Elder Housing and the Seashore Elder Housing Management Company. It’s now a part-time role, as Lou is semi-retired.
“I couldn’t leave this place completely, so I come in a couple of days a week,” he said. “This is a wonderful place to work. I enjoy the people; they are my extended family.”
Lou joined Seashore Gardens Living Center (SGLC) in the Atlantic City location as controller on October 31, 2000 replacing the previous Controller who had been there for over 15 years. He brought with him 30 years of previous financial healthcare experience of which 17 were in the Nursing Home field. “When I came on staff, we were about to begin the construction of the facility where we currently are now,” he said.
“There are plenty of choices for elder care in our region,” he noted, “and Seashore Gardens Living Center has held true to its reputation. The residents here are treated with the utmost respect, and receive the absolute best care. I am proud to be a part of the Home and to help further its mission.”
Now that Lou is semi-retired, he enjoys spending time with family. That includes his wife, Rosemarie, a former employee of SGLC, his daughter Renee, and granddaughter Abigail. He is a baseball and a model train enthusiast and serves as vice president of the South Jersey Garden Railroad Society.
