Letter from the Administrator: Team Love
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner and love is in the air we want everyone to know how much we love our family at River Haven, from our residents to our team. Everyday we motivate one another to make our facility a happy place. Sure, there are days that are more challenging than others but in the words of Mother Teresa, “Speak tenderly; let there be kindness in your face, in your eyes, in your smile, in the warmth of your greeting. Always have a cheerful smile. Don’t only give your care but give your heart as well”. Fore when you do this you brighten the day of others and soothe your soul.
We have an amazing rehabilitation department, nursing team, housekeeping group, dietary department and administrative team that constantly strive to put the love, life, and movement back into our residents.
Mrs. Wanda (previous resident’s mom) says, “That she loved it when her son was here because he kept up with his rehabilitation, he ate well, and he took his medication properly. When he’s at home he just sits around lifeless and she can’t stand to see him wither away”. She said, “we’re like family here and this is where she wanted him to be”. It’s the kind of love we here at River Haven like to instill in our culture, team, and residents.
I’m an out-on-the-floor kind of administrator. Always checking on our culture and ensuring we are delivering the best care with love and appreciation for everyone. If you haven’t been by to visit, please come on in! We’re open 24/7. Our Marketing Director Teresa would be glad to give you a tour of our facility and introduce you to “team-LOVE”! Please call (270)442-6168 or (270)519-9734 for a tour.
