Grace Willowbrook celebrates staff with an ice cream social!
We recently celebrated all the wonderful caregivers at Grace Willowbrook with an ice cream social!
The event included photos of each caregivers hands which will be framed with the saying "Our Hands Hold Your Hearts".
Our program included remarks from Jim Sires who was a CNA in a nursing home years ago and spoke about knowing how it feels to be a caregiver and now one who receives care.
Our program concluded with Ruth giving this prayer:
"Lord today we thank you for the many caregivers you have guided to our home. We thank you, God, for caring hearts and capable hands that help us each day. Lord, we ask that you bless the staff with peace and understanding. Continue to give them the patience and strength they need to get through each day.
Bless their families as well Lord, help the family member to be supportive and compassionate; we know our staff sometimes go home tired and need someone to care for them. Thank you, Lord, for all that you provide each of us every day. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen"
