These four Certified Nurse's Aides are all recent additions to our Eventide family. In the past, we have chosen only ONE employee of the month, but with the quality of work that these have brought to our home, tradition had to be broken! With little, and in a couple of cases NO experience, these young ladies have come in and worked like OLD PROS!
The lengths that they have gone to for our residents has not gone unnoticed. It has been such a blessing to hear their kind words, see the hugs and pats, compassion, and the fact they have been caught taking time to do the "little things," is just icing on the cake!
Sweet greetings when they arrive, and unnecessary goodbyes before they depart...
Their tenderness and genuine care and concern have caused them to help put the HOME in Eventide Nursing Home! Lets get to know them a little better!
