April 30th begins National Nurses Week and I have a nurse I'd like to tell your readers about.
Fair Acres Care Community has been in Armada since 1965 and we we have a nurse that has been with us since 1966. Her name is Pat Falk and she has spent 42 years as a leader in providing quality senior care to the seniors of our community. Fair Acres has always had an exemplary reputation due to the teamwork of our leaders and all our caring staff; in the last four years Fair Acres has enjoyed three perfect surveys –something that is exceptional in our industry.
Back to the nurses. We also have four nurses that have been with us from 32 years to 18 years. In a time when health care facilities are offering packages for nurses to come to them, we've been fortunate enough for ours to be happy and stay.
The newly renovated dining room will be dedicated to Pat Falk. Pat Falk has been a resident of Armada her whole life–never drove and walked everyday to work; I could go on and on.
I am very proud to be a part of the team.
