Monsey, New York (PRWEB) March 04, 2013
Last fall, the Weiss family visited the Pine Valley Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing, a long-term care facility in Spring Valley, New York, for a family celebration with their grandfather, a resident at Pine Valley.
The staff ushered the family to a private area of the dining room, provided them with place settings and utensils, and swiftly brought Grandpa in his wheelchair from his room, so he could join the party in comfort.
The entire family marveled at how the entire staff was accommodating and pleasant. They left with a new respect for the staff and appreciation for the level of care that their loved one was receiving.
According to Noah Kaminer, Pine Valley’s administrator, “Employees provide care day in and day out to residents, but they are also the ones that often interact with residents’ families. It may be cliché, but for long-term care facilities, our employees are our greatest asset.”
That’s why Pine Valley invests an extraordinary amount of effort to attract, retain and motivate quality employees. Motivated employees are happy and productive, believes Mr. Kaminer.
He explains: “With lower reimbursements and rising expenses, it’s hard for us to always raise salaries. However, we always look for creative ways to reward loyal employees.”
Pine Valley is a member of Prime Source GPO, a national group purchasing organization and procurement company that specializes in servicing long-term care and assisted living facilities. As a GPO member, the facility is eligible for and takes advantage of Prime Source’s Employee Perks Program.
The perks program allows Pine Valley employees to receive exclusive discounts on travel, cell phone plans
