At Brethren Care Village, we are honored to witness the heartwarming stories of our team members, whose passion for senior care drives them to make a positive impact on the lives of our residents. Elizabeth Rivers’ journey is a shining example of unwavering dedication and the meaningful connections forged within our community.
A Fateful Homecoming
Elizabeth’s journey at BCV began as she moved back to Ashland while attending nursing school. Inspired by her sister, who was already a valued member of our team, she decided to apply and join the BCV family. It was a fateful decision that would shape her future in ways she could have never imagined.
Discovering Her Calling
As Elizabeth began her career, she considered various paths within the nursing field, including short-term care and hospitals. However, it was her interactions with the residents at BCV that reaffirmed her decision to stay in long-term care. Witnessing how much recurring staff members meant to our residents and the profound impact it had on their quality of life, Elizabeth realized she had found her calling.
A Supportive Environment for Growth
At BCV, we believe in nurturing the growth of our team members, especially during challenging times. When the COVID pandemic disrupted Elizabeth’s nursing school clinical hours, she reached out to our Director of Nursing, who was also her supervisor. In a testament to our supportive community, Elizabeth was able to set up a schedule to shadow nurses, ensuring she could continue her education and growth even in uncertain times.
A Close-Knit Family
What sets Brethren Care Village apart from other senior care facilities, according to Elizabeth, is the close-knit, family-like atmosphere. As a result of this deep sense of connection, the community holds itself to a higher standard of care and compassion. The camaraderie shared among staff members across the campus fosters an environment of mutual support and genuine care, creating an extraordinary experience for our team and residents alike.
