Armstrong further explains, “One on one visits is one of my favorite activities at The Gardens. You can talk to residents about their life and you can see a sparkle in their eyes as they go back in time and remember something they want you to know.”
For over 22 years, Gina has devoted her career to the wellbeing of our residents. “Residents ask me, ‘Why are you always smiling Gina?’ I smile even wider. I respond, ‘Because I am happy to be here, I love my job.’”
Gina sees herself continuing to grow along with The Grove & The Gardens. “I see myself helping residents for a long time, knowing I can help and feel cherished by them, and my coworkers, is a very special feeling. I love giving them special moments. Special moments are what lead to quality of life. The Grove and Gardens is like my second home”.
“Nurses can have a world of opportunities to choose from. No matter what you do, you give yourself because you care.” Kelly explained with excitement in her voice as she shared her passion.
For Kelley, her day begins with resident reports from other facility leaders and then assesses and provides holistic care to all resident. Her main priority is ensuring patients reach self-actualization with any assistance required to allow a patient to reach their highest potential even with a disease that can hinder them physically and psychologically, but Kelley always strives to give her patient’s the best care she can provide.
Kelly explains, “I retired early, but I missed my career and decided to come back. I enjoy the small town feel of Forest Grove and The Grove & The Gardens just made sense for me. I like the administration and their philosophy, there is a deep level of care for residents and we seek to provide what is best for each [resident].”
Kelley further explains with a smile on her face, “From the beginning, The Grove & The Gardens embraced my background and listened to my ideas to have the best experience for residents, their families, and employees. It is a warm feeling when you know your boss is there to support you”.
Luan and Tom- Linda’s supervisors express with joy, “Since Linda’s arrival we’ve seen continuous improvement. Not only does she go out of her way to assist residents but their families too. She brings a very disciplined skill of critical thinking, professionalism, knowledge, and education. It’s had an overwhelming effect on our quality of care here at The Grove Assisted Living and The Gardens Memory Care. We are so privileged and proud to have her in our facility”.
Kelley is hopeful for the future of healthcare, especially for what is to come for senior care.
“I think assisted living will see stricter regulations and a better focus on the elderly community, the need for experienced nurse care will improve. It’s not easy in our society to grow old and I am hoping it will change with generations to come”.
