“My dad can’t always remember the names of all of the CNAs, but he is quick to tell us all the acts of kindness these people perform on a daily basis – things like letting him know that his wife settled down peacefully at bedtime, or sitting down on his bed and asking him to tell about the photos on his wall. Small acts create immeasurable feelings of being valued as an individual.”
Loretto Employee Stories
I always wanted to pursue a career in culinary arts in some form and working with elders over the years has been a great experience. They have taught me a lot. Loretto gave me a chance to grow and fulfill my goals and dreams.
Harold Williams, Advanced Meal cook
Loretto's Sedgwick Heights hasn’t simply been a job for me these past 14 years, but a motivation to make a difference within my own community and with elders. Working for Loretto gives me greater confidence in myself; giving me the education & tools needed to grow in my job. Loretto does a great job at motivating people through encouragement, constant support and consistently keeping education moving forward.
Joanne Garcia, Sedgwick Heights Case Manager
At Daybreak, employees' hard work is recognized and praised throughout the year with various employee luncheon/dinner celebrations. As a therapeutic recreation specialist, I am encouraged to think outside of the box and have the freedom to try new programs. The atmosphere at Daybreak is positive and uplifting for staff and participants. This makes for many enjoyable days!
Shannon Mahan, Daybreak Adult Medical Day Program therapeutic recreation specialist
I really enjoy talking and helping the participants. I try to always go above and beyond what ever they may need, even if it’s not in my job description. PACE CNY is about the quality of life so I always try to put a smile on their face. In my three years at PACE CNY, I have made everlasting relationships with so many of the participants that I will cherish and remember for a lifetime.
