Happy National Skilled Nursing Care Week from the Avila Institute

Posted by Erin Pietrak | Thursday, May 14, 2020

 

The Avila Institute of Gerontology would like to recognize the courageous healthcare workers and residents during National Skilled Nursing Care week.

We know it’s been beyond hard, and we recognize and commend you.

We remind you of these words from our Foundress, Venerable Mother Angeline:

"Be kind to yourself."
"Be kind to each other."  
"Be faithful in the little things."

We pray for the healthcare workers who care for the beloved elderly 
and the residents who make each of our homes unique.


A REFLECTION FOR  NATIONAL SKILLED NURSING CARE WEEK

Throughout history, we have seen the love and dedication that healthcare
workers provide to residents in skilled nursing care facilities.

This video produced by the Catholic Health Association celebrates
the healthcare workers that continue to serve the elderly, especially
during this challenging time.

Thank you for all you do!



OUR PRAYER FOR HEALTHCARE WORKERS AND RESIDENTS

We commit to You these strong and courageous
healthcare workers and residents.

Bless the healthcare workers for their unwavering compassion
and care that they have imparted to so many.

Bless the residents for their resilience and bravery
during this period of uncertainty.

As You said to Joshua,

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged,
for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."

We pray for your continued blessings of strength and courage
for all those working and residing in our skilled nursing care homes.

Amen.
