Join us for our
Fireworks Extravaganza
7:00 pm, July 4th!
Hello Summertime!
An AWESOME 1950s style BBQ for our favorite Dads...

...Complete with

Roller Skates & Rachel OWNING that 50s VIBE!

...Roller skates, Rootbeer floats, and Rachel,
OWNING that 50s VIBE!

...and we celebrated Marilyn Monroe, Drive-In movies, remembered D-Day, pampered ourselves on Spa Day, hunted extra-terrestrials on UFO Day, crafted, played MULTIPLE games, worshiped, enjoyed WONDERFUL singers & guitar players, sculpted, painted, sang karaoke, had ice cream sundaes AND a visit from the Ice Cream Truck, 
BUT a favorite celebration was for our
Nursing Assistants during National NA Week! This one's for YOU...

...And on the 8th day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, "I need a caregiver." So God made a CNA.
God said, "I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, put their family and themselves aside, work all day on the floor, miss lunch, stay late, eat supper, then go to sleep, get back up and do it all over again." So God made a CNA.
"I need somebody with arms, legs and back strong enough to turn and lift the heaviest/weakest patient, but gentle enough to offer a soft touch to the sick, a hurting family member and the dying. I need somebody to alert the nurse, troubleshoot medical equipment, come home hungry, and then tend to their families." So God made a CNA.
God said, "I need somebody willing to sit up all night with a newborn baby, the weak, the scared and the dying, and offer encouragement and presence. I need somebody who can take the temperature, monitor the blood pressure and cleanse the skin of the individual incapable of doing so for himself. Who can lay chux pads, change linens and monitor the fall risks. I need someone who can wipe the eye, hold the hand, apply the lotion, promote circulation, shave the face, trim the nose hairs, clip the toenails, draw the eyebrows, braid the hair, swab the mouth, and promote independence and strength. I need someone who will not allow another to choke, to help them eat and to be their eyes when they can't see." So God made a CNA.
"I need somebody who will race to help when someone calls out." So God made a CNA.
It had to be somebody who was dedicated and hard-working and not cut corners. It had to be somebody to monitor, assist, transfer, lift, turn, bathe, feed, run, hug, hold, love, notify, joke, ambulate, pass the trays, cry with the family and the patients, and do the one-on-one. Who would laugh and then sigh, and then reply with smiling eyes when someone says "I could not do what you do."
So God made a CNA.

YOU ARE THE HEART OF THE WONDERFUL CARE-GIVING IT IS OUR HONOR TO PROVIDE, and no, most of us could NOT do what you do, or carry it out with so much compassion!
