What do you do for Our Family Home?
I am the lead for our Bramblewood house in Cincinnati. In this role, I oversee the day-to-day operations of the home. I provide personal care for our residents and entertain them.
How long have you worked with Our Family Home?
I have worked for Our Family Home for four years.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
The best part of my job is working with our residents and making them happy. I enjoy interacting with them and talking with them.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I like to spend time working with flowers, riding my bike and reading. I also enjoy fishing and spending time with my daughters and grandchildren.
I’ve learned that residents like to smile. They appreciate patience and enjoy being cared for. They also appreciate a gentle touch.
How does OFH give residents and families more good days?
We’re able to provide all of their care instead of just a few things. We get to know our residents and their families which builds trust. We’re also able to spend more time with them, whether it’s personal care or just interacting with them. We have more time to meet their needs.
We have time to put a smile on their face!
