National Nurses Week has a much different feeling this year, especially at Chelsea Senior Living, an owner and operator of Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care communities in New Jersey and New York.
Although Nurses Week concluded on Thursday, Chelsea celebrated with our nurses today during a luncheon at the Tavern at Ash Brook in Scotch Plains.
“It’s empowering. We need a recharge every year. It makes us feel good and gets us ready for the tasks ahead,” said Shari Stein, the Director of Health Services at Maple Pointe.
“It was great to have an opportunity this Nurses Week to show them how grateful we are for everything they’ve done and continue to do for us,” said Patricia Banta, Chelsea’s Regional Director of Health Services.
Our nurses have worked, and continue to work tooth and nail to provide safety and security to the residents in all of our communities. They have vigorously battled COVID-19 front and center with our residents’ health being the top priority.
When COVID-19 first became a threat about 14 months ago, our nurses worked weeks straight, and at times, around the clock. They were reliable, consistent, and provided the best care, as usual, that any of our residents could ask for.
“We were all working to our max ability, slowly reaching critical mass, but still going, going, going,” said Banta.
In March, the New York State Center for Assisted Living awarded the prestigious Nurse of the Year award to Stein.
