I have been asked to say a few words about our nurses (staff) and it dawned on me that gratitude is what residents and their loved ones most often express in relation to the care provided at (... facility’s name…).
Over my (years/decades) here, I have witnessed the commitment and dedication of our nurses (staff) time and time again. They are the friends, confidants, interpreters, and consoling voices that residents need to overcome challenges on a daily basis. We are profoundly grateful for everything you do.
We know that it is not an easy job, many of you go through physically exhausting and emotionally draining times. Your passion and enthusiasm compel you to overcome these challenges with the knowledge that your contribution is critical to our residents.

Speaking on behalf myself and management, I would like to extend our sincerest thanks to each and every one of you.
