This is The Clare

Emily Delaney


Emily Delaney has been the Assisted Living Manager for The Terraces at The Clare since October 2017. She manages the staff and oversees the needs of residents that reside on the assisted living and memory care floors.

Emily studied at Loyola University Chicago for her bachelor’s and master’s degrees, both in social work with a specialization in health care and geriatrics. She started her career at The Clare through an internship on the skilled nursing floors with the social service team during her senior year of college. Upon completion of her master’s program, she accepted a part-time position as a social worker at the community, which eventually led to a full-time role. Her main passion is working with those who have Alzheimer’s or related dementias, and she has focused most of her continuing education on that topic as a means of staying up-to-date on how to best care for residents with this (sometimes) challenging disease.

Emily lives in Lakeview with her fiancé, Paul and English Bulldog, Willis. Outside of The Clare, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, cooking, trying new restaurants and spending as much time outdoors as possible – when the Chicago weather cooperates!
