Valdosta nursing home receives service award

October 15, 2002

Valdosta - Nina Killeen says she has the best job in the world. She spends her day helping the elderly at Heritage House Nursing Home.

"Just to be able to help others and spread a little sunshine to their day is the most rewarding experience," said Killeen. "I truly love what I do."

Nina makes sure each resident has the proper medicine, and does routine paper work, but her job means more than this.

"We listen to them when they're sad, laugh with them when they're happy, and spend our days trying to make there's a little happier," said Killeen.

It's because of people like Nina than Heritage House Nursing home has received the "Go for the Gold" award for the 4th straight year. The award recognizes quality service in nursing home care. Residents at Heritage House say staff members like Nina brighten up their days.

"They're like family to us," said Lester Griffin, nursing home resident. "They have a wonderful, caring, and dedicated staff here."

A staff that not only provides quality service, but also a friendship and sense of family to you or your loved ones.
