Dear Patients, Residents and Families
COVID-19 Second Booster Dose
The CDC recently released a recommendation for a second COVID-19 booster dose for certain persons. Specifically, a second mRNA booster dose could benefit people ages 50 years and older, as they are at increased risk for severe COVID-19. People ages 50 years and older may choose to receive a second booster dose, if it has been at least 4 months after the first booster. We recommend that appropriate residents receive their second booster dose. The COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) are available. Please let your physician or nurse know right away if you or your loved one would like to receive the second booster.

Ashley DewittCenter Nurse Executive
In the past 8 years of my medical career I have worked as a Nursing Assistant with Hospice/Med-Surg, a Combat Medic/Healthcare Specialist with the military, a member of relief teams during natural disasters, and a certified trauma nurse at a level 1 trauma center. I joined Genesis HealthCare in March of this year as part of management. It didn’t take long to fall in love with long term care. I took as many opportunities as I could to grow and learn from those who surrounded me, which made me feel more confident in the care I provided. At home, I have a husband, two kids, a dog and a turtle. We love going to new places and trying new things. While we haven’t been able to travel much with Covid-19, we try our best to make the most of our time together because we believe that time with family is irreplaceable.

Julia SmythDementia Program Director
I have been with Genesis for several years and have had the opportunity to experience one-on-one care as a Certified Nursing Assistant with residents who resided on a Memory Unit. I obtained a degree in Psychology from Concord University in 2013 and had intended to conduct research on Sensation and Perception and the way that these can affect mood and behaviors. My grandparents became ill around the time of my graduation and we had a difficult time caring for them during the transition phase between falling ill and being diagnosed. My Grandfather was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2016 and not long after my Grandmother was diagnosed with Dementia. I decided to change my career path and become a Certified Nursing Assistant in order to gain a better understanding of Dementia/Parkinson's in terms of behaviors and stages. I was able to gain this understanding while working on the Memory Unit as a Certified Nursing Assistant. I fell in love with engaging in meaningful interactions with the residents as well as providing care to individuals who experience Dementia/Alzheimer's/Parkinson's. At that time I had understood that I had found my walk in life. My goal as the Director of Mary's Garden is to help make a difference in the lives of affected individuals by encouraging meaningful interactions as well as providing staff with education based on the most progressive techniques to understand behavior and the importance of a daily routine, including activities that your loved one prefers to participate in.
