This week, senior housing communities across the nation have taken time to pause and focus their attention and their grateful hearts on the special people and teams who serve assisted living residents. Throughout Generations’ communities, we too, are celebrating our cherished staff members. All of our teams, including care, culinary and wait staff, maintenance and housekeeping, and Vitality and support staff play an integral role in not only providing care but a lifestyle that is nurturing, supportive and enriching.
During these challenging times, our teams strive to stay safe at work in order to protect our cherished residents and each other. They also remain diligent in practicing these same safety precautions at home, while continuing to balance life with their own families and kids, many of whom are remote learning. We have asked a great deal of them and these cherished staff members continue to bring us their dedication, joy and hope for a better, although different, future. Their stories continue to inspire me.
This reminds me of a quote I love from Maya Angelou;
“How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our Hero’s and She-Roes!”
Our celebrations this past week have looked different then they have in the past but none the less heartfelt. Please join me in sharing a smile, words of kindness, and special appreciation for these teams who serve us so well.
Thank you for standing with us.
All my best,
Melody Gabriel, CEO
