Dear Dedicated St. Joseph’s Staff,
The past few weeks have proved extremely taxing to the staff of St. Joseph’s community, who had to weigh the risks of exposing themselves to the CORONAVIRUS while fulfilling their daily duties.
The Little Servant Sisters of the Immaculate Conception wish to express their gratitude to those employees who despite the deteriorating conditions and the increasing risk of infection took the heroic measures to provide the best service and perform their duties as efficiently as ever. Some of the nursing staff and nurses aids never failed to provide the best care possible, often exhausted after working long hour shifts away from home and family, the nurses and aids remained loyal to the cause and completed their responsibilities without complaint.
Moreover, the St. Joseph’s staff invariably continued to provide the residents with warm, nutritious meals and a homely atmosphere until the very last day of their eviction. Without them, St. Joe’s would not be the same.
We wish to thank each and every one of our employees for your hard work, dedication and sacrifice in this trying time. We appreciate your commitment to the cause, and keep you all in our daily prayers, especially those who have contracted the virus while fulfilling their duties.
Thank you for everything you have done to support our frontline health care providers and the teams which make it possible for our field to serve as a cornerstone of care in the Woodbridge retirement community.
You are the true heroes!
The Little Servant Sisters of The Immaculate Conception
THANK YOU NOTES FROM OUR RESIDENTS FAMILY MEMBERS:
To the Staff of St. Joseph’s
Dear Sisters and Staff,
You were a second family to our mother. You took care of her and loved her and for that we will always be grateful. You have a special gift and we are so happy mom was able to be part of it for 2.5 years.
Thank you for taking such good care of our Mom!
To all the staff of the second floor, We cannot begin to express our thanks and gratitude for all the loving care shown to my mom (and dad) for the past few years. Your comforting ways and loving style made us feel they were always cared for.
Thank you to all of you!
It is with a heavy and broken heart that I write this note. My faith and prayers lead me to believe that St. Joe will be back as strong and vibrant with your compassion and care.
My mom has had the best of her life at St. Joe’s.
Thanks so very much for all the care you gave my mother, Carmela Libero, during her short stay at St. Joe’s. I also pray for the healing of the staff and residents.
Your efforts were astounding and I hope the Staff and all the Sisters are in good health or recovering to good health. My mom, Patricia Holton, was at peace at St. Joseph’s. She felt well taken care of by kind individuals and the Catholic presence was all the more comforting to her and our family. Again, I had to reach out to all of the Sisters and Staff to express our appreciation for all your efforts.
Mostly, I want to say thank for taking care of my grandmother for the last 7 years. we couldn’t have asked for better care or a more loving environment than what she had at St. Joseph’s. I always said it didn’t feel like a nursing home, it felt more like a family. We noticed and appreciated the pride everyone put into their jobs, the fact that everything was always perfectly clean and there was no odor, that the food was deliciously prepared, the residents had entertainment and that Grandma got to go to church and get communion. We couldn’t have asked for better care for Grandma and we will alwyas have a special place in our hearts for St. Joseph’s.
