Sheila Molony is a Professor of Nursing at Quinnipiac University and a Fellow of the Gerontological Society of America and a Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing.
Dr. Molony’s research emphasizes the importance of individually-tailored care, actively listening to the voices of older adults and families, and using these perspectives to shape healing environments in long-term care.

Dr. Molony has created resources to guide prevention and mitigation of conditions that diminish at-homeness, including delirium, dementia-related symptoms, adverse medication events and avoidable hospitalizations.
