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."
"We were at peace knowing that she was being taken care of, not only physically but spiritually and socially. We were truly blessed to have mom spend her last years at Garvey Manor. We know that your gift of love and support, shown in your daily encounters with mom, can only come from the heart. She was treated with respect and dignity, not as an old person waiting to die. "
