Bellevue-basesd Elder and Adult Day Services (EADS), a non-profit organization which provides relief to caregivers by offering day health programs focused on frail seniors and adults with developmental disabilities, has announced it’s hired a new Chief Executive Officer, Jeff Bradt, who will join the organization in mid September. Jeff Bradt takes the helm from Jan Nestler, who founded Elder and Adult Day Services more than 25 years ago.
Jeff comes to EADS from Sholom Community Alliance, a Minnesota nonprofit provider of senior healthcare and housing services with annual revenues of $45 million. For the past ten years, Jeff has held the position of Corporate Director of Human Resources/Chief Compliance Officer for Sholom Community Alliance. His responsibilities there also included direction of an IT department supporting 500 users on three campuses.
“Although these are challenging times for all nonprofits, the need for caring, cost-effective adult day services is growing exponentially,” states Jeff, “I am proud to be joining a passionate organization determined to meet that need.”
Jeff has served on the executive team of several Minnesota public and nonprofit organizations, including the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, Minneapolis Public Schools and the Minnesota Department of Public Safety. He has published articles on compensation planning, applied statistics and HR management. In addition, he has been a presenter at many national conferences on subjects as diverse as information technology systems design, performance management, TQM and strategic planning. He has a Masters Degree in Management from Hamline University in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Established in 1984, Elder and Adult Day Services (EADS) has provided relief to caregivers by offering day health programs to care for the needs of frail seniors and adults with developmental disabilities. The centers, conveniently located in Bellevue, Des Moines and Bainbridge Island, are the only day health programs in Washington State that are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), meeting rigorous guidelines for service and quality.
