Trinity Care Center Recognizes

Frontline Caregivers of Elderly Patients in Nursing Homes

For Their Dedication and Compassion

 

Rep. Larry Gonzales and Local Dignitaries Join Elderly Patients and Their Loved Ones

To Express Gratitude During National Nursing Assistants Week

 

Round Rock, TX –  In recognition of National Nursing Assistants Week, Senior Care Center’s Trinity Care Center today honored more than fifty Certified Nurse Assistants (CNAs), the frontline caregivers responsible for providing high quality, compassionate care for elderly patients, for their steadfast dedication and commitment to their profession.

“Our CNAs personalize and tailor care to the needs of each elderly resident and this event is an opportunity for all of us who benefit from their dedication, to express heartfelt gratitude,” said Nam Luong, administrator for Trinity Care Center. “Trinity Care Center’s mission to ensure our seniors age with dignity is reinforced every day by our frontline caregivers.”

Known for their devotion to caring for seniors and considering their profession a “calling,” CNAs, including those at Trinity and surrounding Senior Care Centers, gathered to hear from those who directly benefit from their care, the family members of loved ones in nursing homes and state and local dignitaries, including Rep. Larry Gonzales, R-Dist 52, who represents the Round Rock community.

“All too often Certified Nursing Assistants are overlooked when a discussion about healthcare providers is brought up; however, all of you provide irreplaceable services at Trinity which help protect some of our most vulnerable Texans–our elderly,” said Rep. Gonzales. “Your dedication to this profession and compassion for this group is irreplaceable.  The families of residents and our community appreciate your contributions to the health and safety of our aging community members. Thank you for choosing this profession.  You are heroes to all of us.”

Luong read a proclamation from Governor Abbott thanking the CNAs for their dedication, noting “…the care and comfort you provide to Texans spending their golden years at Trinity Care Center does not go unnoticed. I applaud you for your hard work and devotion to caring for your follow Texans…”

In addition, elderly residents themselves took the opportunity to express their appreciation to those who greet them every morning and help them throughout the day.

A former school bus monitor for disabled children and parent and foster parent to six kids, Jean Teak Kingsbury, who is paralyzed from the waist down and has been at Trinity for a year, said her CNAs always ask what more can they do for her and show kindnesses above and beyond the call of their duties.  “One of my gals brought me a box of my favorite cream puffs when I told her Wal-Mart was out of them.  She didn’t have to do that.”

Dusty Case ran an entertainment booking agency out of her home in the ‘60’s, giving Kenny Rogers and bands such as ZZ Top and Alabama their start before hitting the big time.  She now suffers from dementia but son Brad Case said the CNAs at Trinity give him a peace of mind.

“I know my mom has a comfort level somewhere deep inside with the CNAs,” said Case. “She knows they are there for her safety and comfort.”
