VERO BEACH, Fla., May 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — During the second week of May, the residents and staff of Watercrest St. Lucie West Assisted Living and Memory Care designated a special time each day to recognize their nurses who are critically important in ensuring the safety, health and happiness of their Watercrest senior living residents.
“Over the past several years, the senior living industry has seen an increased demand for nurses and care staff, and it is essential to us as an organization to take the time to honor these associates who compassionately care for our seniors each and every day,” says Jennifer Bargo, Resident Wellness Director of Watercrest St. Lucie West.
