Why We Care

June 1, 2022
From our newest staff members to our longest employed, each person has a different journey and steps up to make a difference in our residents’ lives. It takes a special kind of individual to work in this field, and we honor these selfless healthcare workers. Their daily tasks include showing our residents personalized care through our person-centered approach, which is individualized and unique to each resident.

Follow along as we showcase the hearts and souls at our skilled nursing facility by asking our teams how they show their care to our residents and why they chose the career path of healthcare/long-term care. Find out why a handful of our employees are so passionate about being a caretaker by exploring their answers.

Brittany Whitehead LPN, Wound Nurse

Why did you choose to work in healthcare?

“I have been a nurse for 6 years and an STNA for 12 years. When I was around 8-9 years old, I was admitted to Rainbows Children’s Hospital. I was there for about a month. Watching how amazing those nurses were made me realize that was what I wanted to do. I always thought I would be working with children. Once I started working in long-term care and skilled care, there was no turning back, and I love it!"

Michelle McDerment, STNA

Why did you choose to become a caregiver?

“I became a nursing assistant before there were STNAs’. I was 15 years old at that time. Now, of course, I am an STNA. I have been an STNA for 47 years and 13 years at Keystone Pointe. It is what I know and what I am good at. I love helping with the small details to make our residents feel special and good about themselves. It makes me so happy to help them get dressed for the day and look so good!”

Cat Kelly, LPN

Why did you choose to become a caregiver?

“I have been a nurse for almost two years. I was a Beautician for years and decided I needed a change. I wanted to do something that would still be in the service industry but really help them. It is helping at a different level. I also get the bonus of helping the residents look good too!”
