From the Desk of the Administrator
Greetings to our readers! There is always much to share in our newsletter and we love for our readers to be informed on our latest news and happenings. This edition we have a retirement announcement to make. Loraine Schuler, LPN, in our Nursing Office plans to retire at the end of this month. Loraine joined Mrs. Bush’s November 10, 1995. She trained in Paterson, NJ and gained valuable nursing experience at Elsie Kresge’s Nursing Home and Pleasant Valley Manor Skilled Nursing Facility prior to joining Mrs. Bush’s.
When Loraine began at Mrs. Bush’s she worked as a 3pm-11pm medication aide and eventually moved into the Nursing Office as a supervisor. Over the course of 21 years Loraine has seen us through many stages of growth. She has been a hardworking and dedicated support to our Team. She heads the Safety Committee, makes rounds with physicians, oversees the daily health needs of our residents and works with our staff to support their efforts every day. Her duties have also included on-call responsibility for staffing and resident emergencies. She has worked many shifts when staff were unable to fulfill a shift and she has always been a presence during our busy holidays, working as much as she could to allow others to celebrate with their families. Loraine has conducted many tours and fielded hundreds of calls in her time, always representing Mrs. Bush’s in the most positive light. You can count on Loraine to say it like it is.
I have had the pleasure to work side by side with Loraine 19 out of her 21 years. She will truly be missed but we are happy for Loraine and her husband, Ronald, to take some much deserved time to themselves. Loraine has 4 sons and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her faith has always been a very important part of her life and she will now have time to dedicate to that as well as time with her family (especially spending some of the cold winter days sipping some wine with her son and his family in Georgia)! We know she is looking forward to that!
FAREWELL, CONGRATULATIONS AND GOOD LUCK TO YOU, LORAINE!!!! YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE FRIENDS AT MRS. BUSH’S PERSONAL CARE HOMES!!!
Sincerely, Jessica Scheffner, RN, BSN, Administrator
