In Good Company

The only way to do great work is to love what you do”

Steve Jobs

 

I have been very blessed to have found not only a job but a family here at Bartlett Woods.  There is no lack of positive feedback from the community about the wonderful place I work in, whether it is the residents who live here, staff, the family who comes to visit, doctors, or even transport drivers who take residents to their appointments, their words always so kind.  The work done here by our team of professionals is nothing short of amazing.

We have a fully staffed kitchen that not only puts out gourmet meals at dinner time but also caters our special events that happen throughout the year with such grace.  Their concern and love for each individual who lives and works here are just unlike anything I have ever seen in all my years of working in the healthcare field. No lack of attention is spared.

Our housekeeping team is phenomenal and I have heard nothing but compliments from the residents and community alike.  The thoroughness they provide within each inch of this building speaks for itself.  The attentiveness and tenderness they show to the residents and staff is something that still amazes me every day.

Although we are a retirement community we also assist with daily living skills when the time arises and our Resident Care team knocks it out of the park.  All it takes is to walk through the door here at Bartlett Woods and you will see what I am talking about.  The care and compassion that they show are genuine and truly speaks volumes about our level of care.

What would a retirement community be without a full schedule of activities?  With so many residents from so many walks of life, it truly takes talent to plan and execute activities so superbly, but our activities department pulls it off every month.  Assuring an idea comes to life is what they strive for and hit it on the mark every time!

We all know that a building with 58 apartments could not run efficiently without a special person who takes care of the everyday maintenance and needs of the residents.  Talk about dedication, our maintenance director has been here for around twenty years which includes the time he spent helping construct Bartlett Woods.  His mission is to assure the building is safe, maintained and the resident’s needs are taken care of in a timely manner.  His knowledge is unsurpassable and I often hear “What would this place do without Mike?”.

How many places can say they have a personal gardener?  We are pleased that we are one of them.  Each year we look forward to her once again gracing us with her presence and ability in the gardens that surround Bartlett Woods.  She is an artist with all things that grow.  With her impeccable timing of planting from April through October, we are always surrounded by beauty when we walk out the door.

Last but not least is our administration team who include our Business Office Manager/ Assistant Controller who deals with all of the financial goings on, our Admissions & Marketing Director who spend countless hours educating the community on who Bartlett Woods is and how we can help our aging population, our Director of Resident Care/RN  who somehow has all the answers and our Executive Director who takes great pride in assuring her Bartlett Woods team is educated, appreciated and feels powerful.

Being fortunate enough to work with this amazing team each and every day is something that you can only feel if you are

IN GOOD COMPANY
