At Consulate Health Care, we value innovation. With the evolution of technology in the digital world, the prevalence of social media as a manner to network with others is essential. Our care centers take this opportunity to not only connect with the local community, but to share news and positivity with our residents’ families and loved ones, as well as inspire staff.
In addition to Consulate’s corporate brand page on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Twitter, each care center has its own Facebook page. By sharing resident and staff stories, special events, health tips, and other relevant content, these channels are used to showcase our centers and all their remarkable achievements. We understand that day-to-day activities, celebrations, honorable accomplishments, compassionate team members, and very special residents deserve to be showcased and celebrated. All year long, the following five care centers utilize the Good News program to the fullest and here is what they had to say.
“This is a way to keep our residents’ families and others aware of what we have been up to in our care center,” Michelle Romig, Director of Activities at The Manor at Penn Village, explained. “Often, people don’t realize just what goes on every day at our center or how we keep our residents healthy and well,” she added. By sharing stories and pictures on our social media platforms, our community and families with loved ones in our care can better understand what a day-in-the-life is like.
To help our care center teams to share stories and pictures, Consulate Health Care put together the Good News program. This way, every center has the opportunity to submit their best stories and have them shared on social media, our internal portal, and in some cases even with local media outlets. “Sharing Good News stories allows us to shine a light on the accomplishments of our center, our staff, and our residents,” shared Ramona Gonzales, Executive Director at Consulate Health Care of St. Petersburg, a very active contributor to our Good News program.
Luther Ridge at Seiders Hill is another center with a full Facebook page. Abigayle Kaiser, Director of Admissions and Marketing, explained that by sharing good news, they are able to “keep families, friends and community members up to date on what is happening at Luther Ridge. It allows them to take a sneak peek at what our center provides to our residents and how we can benefit someone they may know.”
Sharing their stories online also benefits our internal staff. Cynthia Anderson, Activities Director at Consulate Health Care of Port Charlotte, explained that “it helps in keeping morale up and for our staff when they see that they do make a difference in the lives of our residents and that we truly appreciate all they do.” Ramona Gonzalez also saw a difference with her care center’s staff and said “it not only boosts employee morale and instills self confidence, it helps reinforce our commitment to quality care and provides a sense of pride in our residents. It also helps grow and promote the overall well being for everyone.”
“Spreading the Good News stories offers the opportunity to highlight positive activities and interactions occurring in the center. Families, in particular, need to feel good about the experience in the everyday lives of patients and residents,” Martha Mosley, Executive Director at Siemon’s Lakeview Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, shared.
We are grateful to be able to share with others all the positive things that happen in our centers every day. A special thank you to these five care centers who go above and beyond to share their Good News!
