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."
"She received the Christ centered compassionate care that is your motto. It is hard to live it . . .but you wonderfully displayed it in the last months of her life. Although it was difficult for us to see the changes take place in her warm personality . . . it was wonderful to see the personal touch that was displayed daily by all of the staff that took care of her needs."
