Not just a job, but a Ministry
At Garvey Manor, employment is seen as an extension of the Carmelite Sisters' mission, not just a job, but a Ministry . . .
"We, the employees of Garvey Manor, have been chosen to share the love of Christ with our residents. By offering our love, concern and hope to them and to each other, we show our dedication to respect the value and dignity of life. Qualify of life and qualify of care are guided by the values of the Christian faith in the Carmelite tradition.
"God has blessed us with a gift and a responsibility - a ministry of love and kinship. We are rewarded with smiles, laughter, affection, wisdom, appreciation and personal fulfillment.
"We believe our services have become a ministry, renewing us to return God's riches in the work of our hands."
"It's very hard to place a loved one in a nursing facility, but we had the utmost confidence she would be well cared for. All the staff treat the residents like they were their own family."
