Our residents and staff have decided to maintain a Season Tree to recognize and celebrate all of the different Holidays and Seasons throughout the year. Happy Valentine's Day from Edgewood!
Congratulations, Naomi Bean - North Country Associates' Director of Nursing of the Year!
Naomi began her career with North Country Associates in 2007 as a Clini...cal Liaison and quickly transitioned to the Director of Nursing Services at Edgewood in 2008. She is a seasoned DNS and has a proven track record of excellence with respect to Quality Measures, survey results and personnel management. Naomi has spent much of her time at Edgewood with a Shared Administrator structure, which requires a unique level of autonomy for the DNS. Naomi is a strong advocate for her staff and strives to maintain a team oriented work culture. She brings that same commitment to the quality of care for Edgewood’s residents and requires all staff to live up to her high standards. Naomi brings a positive attitude to Edgewood each and every day. She is an outstanding role model; always willing to roll-up her sleeves and do whatever is necessary to accomplish the job. This included a stint as the Temporary Administrator at Edgewood and Orchard Park for nearly a year. Thank you, Naomi, for all you do!
Congratulations, Shelley Seavey - Edgewood's Department Head of the Year!
Shelley absolutely loves her work and always does it with tremendous joy. She is creative with her ideas, and truly gets enjoyment out of the happiness of others, especially the residents. Within the facility there is no job Shelley can’t, or won’t, do. She cooks special breakfast, helps in the maintenance department (often being called the Maintenance Assistant) and sometimes even steps in as Administ...rator to boss other department heads around and make sure they are doing their work. We can’t talk about Shelley without mentioning the sometimes seemingly silly ideas she comes up with to entertain the residents and make their lives at EW worthwhile, like the” Super Bowel“ party she organized. Not to be confused with the Super Bowl, of course. (It should be noted that she really needs an assistant to proof read before monthly calendars are posted). Lastly, it was with her “never take no for an answer” attitude that she was able to convince Doug to allow fireworks in the gravel pit behind the facility. This was no easy feat. She was able to meet his conditions of a “professional” fireworks attendant to shoot off the display, and having the local fire department on site, all free of charge. For all of these things, we thank you for all you do, Shelley!
