The Gardens at DePugh celebrated the 37th annual National Nursing Assistants Week June 12-19, 2014, honoring its 16 dedicated professionals who hold key roles in the delivery of quality healthcare.
Sponsored by the National Network of Career Nursing Assistants (NNCNA), “Nursing Assistants @ the Heart of Caring” was “a timely opportunity to foster and showcase the wonderful things that can happen for residents and workers when we join together.”
According to the NNCNA, each day more than 4.5 million nursing assistants provide hands-on care to our nation’s frail, elderly or chronically challenged citizens in nursing homes and other long-term care settings.
“Our certified nursing assistants do a fine job of serving the specific needs of our residents and rehab patients,” said Tonya Oliver, administrator at The Gardens. “Their love, compassion and knowledge come together to make life easier and more enjoyable.”
