Roger Cooper, owner and administrator of The Jacobs House in Hayden, was appointed by Gov. Robert Bentley to the Board of Examiners of Assisted Living Administrators for the state of Alabama. This board is charged with overseeing licensing procedures of assisted living administrators, as well as investigations within assisted living facilities. “It is exciting to be chosen over all of my peers and other administrators in Alabama to be placed on this board,” Cooper says. “I am pleased that our community finally has a voice.”
The Jacobs House has been offering assisted living services for 28 years and has three facilities on campus, including general care and special assistance care – for residents suffering with mental impairments, such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
