Celebrating Nurses Week 2019!
As we celebrate nurse's week here at RiverMead, it gives us the opportunity to reflect on how our nursing staff effects the lives of residents every day. They are the "heart" of healthcare!
Seniors choose a LifeCare community largely in part because of the lifetime commitment RiverMead makes toward our residents' care. Our Health Center is fully staffed, 24 hours a day with a professional nursing team that includes RNs, MNA's, LNA's and escorts. RiverMead's Nursing staff is dedicated day in and day out to the care, support, and comfort of our residents. (Values, Mission, and Vision echoed by all employees of RiverMead!)
Many of our nurses have been employed at RiverMead for ten plus years, and are a trusted resource for residents and their loved ones.
Nursing is not always the easiest of careers. Nurses often spend countless hours on their feet, miss sleep, and must manage some difficult situations. They accomplish all of this with grace, empathy and professionalism.
RiverMead recognizes and celebrates our nurses this week. We know that RiverMead is the special place it is because of the work they do and how they touch our residents' lives.
Thank you Nurses!
