Please share our appreciation to all Bartels staff who made this Mother’s Day Parade event a possibility … those who dreamed up the idea, the residential staff who put in lots of extra work to get the residents out and along the parade route, and those who put out and removed all the chairs needed for your residents. God was looking kindly on Bartels – the afternoon was a beautiful one! Being in the nursing home industry has its challenges in ordinary times and these are not ordinary. It would have been very easy to dismiss the idea of a parade because of the extra work placed on staff. However, Bartels is no ordinary institution. Thanks to all of your staff for how well you take care of your residents – physically as well as emotionally – especially during these challenging times.
