Staff Biographies

Rachel Dent, RN

Director of Nursing

I grew up the oldest of 5 children on a farm in Brighton, Ontario. I have always enjoyed taking care of people, and knew that I wanted to be a nurse from a very young age. I still have a paper that I wrote when I was 9 titled “Why I want to be a Nurse”. My plan was to become a missionary in a third world country, but soon after graduating I met and married my husband, settled down and began moving around Ontario with our 4 children and my husband’s job in banking.

I began my career in Long Term Care as a housekeeping/laundry/dietary aide at the age of 14 in a Retirement Home. After working in various retirement/group home settings as a student, I began nursing as a new grad at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto on a veteran’s unit, and shortly after started at my first LTC home in Campbellford, Ontario as evening charge nurse. In between having children, home schooling and moving multiple times for my husband’s work, I continued to work at Nursing Homes across Eastern Ontario in various roles, gradually taking on leadership positions of Quality Improvement, RAI Coordinator, and Assistant Director positions until moving to London a year and a half ago and starting my first Director’s position at another London Long term care home. I have always enjoyed working with the senior population, and am excited to continue on at Middlesex Terrace!
