Testimonials

I would like to express my greatest “thank you” to The Gardens at West Shore staff for treating my father as their own “Grandpa”. As soon as he arrived they gave him a bath and clean clothing. I was so scared to leave him because I adore my father! The next morning I rushed over and Ms. Shellon gave me the greatest news, he was walking again! I cry and thank everyone from the kitchen staff, to the nurses, and physical therapists. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you.

Gardens at West Shore Nursing Staff Benefits from Career Training and Enhancement Classes

HARRISBURG, Pa.,Nursing staff at The Gardens at West Shore recently benefited from a fifteen week enrichment course provided by The SEIU Training and Education Fund. The collaboration between West Shore and The Training Fund is but one initiative in the larger goal of providing caregivers with the skills and support that will enable them to move up in their careers and provide residents with quality care.

As they are at the forefront of daily patient interaction, it is vital that CNAs are well-trained in clinical and soft skills which allow them to care for their patients with kindness and compassion.

"What I plan on bringing back to the facility from this course is patience and understanding," says Elaine Bethea, a CNA who participated in the classes.

Another participant admits that she had lost interest in her position as a CNA. After attending the course, though, she found the fire of passion and compassion reignited.

"Attending the enrichment classes adds a deeper 'why' to the work," says Tara Toms, Program Specialist at The SEIU Training and Education Fund. "When CNAs have a chance to step back and remember their reasons for getting into this field. And when they find meaning in what they do, it carries over to patient interaction and increases quality of care.

"This is one of many ways that we build up the skills and confidence of the workforce in nursing homes. By doing so we get caregivers who are better at their jobs because they're equipped with more skills and they know that their union and employers are invested in their success."

Ashley Webb, CNA at Gardens at West Shore says, of her experience as a course participant: "I learned a lot at the class. If I could do the class again, I would do it in a heartbeat. And, the class really helped me come out of my shell; I was able to make a lot of new friends that I will cherish forever."

Many Garden at West Shore's CNAs also take advantage of The SEIU Training and Education Fund's other programs, including career counseling, continuing education, free certification, mentorship, tuition assistance, and general support.

The Gardens at West Shore

Manuel Martinez was admitted to the hospital with MRSA, strept throat and pneumonia. Was in hospital for 2 months enduring ICU placement with tracheostomy and PEG tube. After hospital stay he came to Gardens at West Shore on 5/6/19. After doing therapy as well as working with speech therapy, his trache and his PEG tube were discontinued and Mannie (as we have known to call him) is able to be discharged from the facility and hopefully be able to get his life back on track.
