Beth joined the Concordia family in December of 2018 as an Activities Assistant for Concordia of Cranberry. She describes Concordia as “collaborative.”
“It is a collaborative effort between many different departments including our Nursing Assistants, Dietary staff and Administrators to ensure our residents enjoy their daily activities. Within the Activities department, we work together to make sure the monthly calendar is full of fresh activities that our residents are into and capable of doing.”
Beth told how she came to work for Concordia, why she has stayed and what some of her favorites memories have been.
“After having my two children, I went into child care for a year and it was not what my heart desired. I truly feel that I have been called to be with the aging population. I enjoy that Concordia is a family-oriented organization. Some of my favorite memories so far have been with our residents who not only motivate me but also bring me joy each day!”
She continued, “Two memories come to mind. The first was when we were able to take some residents to the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex to watch a Pittsburgh Penguins practice. It was such a great experience for them! I also have a great time with the residents during our “Comedy Hour” activity that typically results in complete laughter, not because that the jokes are funny but because the residents laugh at me giggling my way through the jokes.”
Beth spends her time outside of Concordia with her husband Nate and their two children, Chase and Lily. The family enjoys camping, movie and game nights, and visiting museums, the zoo and trampoline parks.
When we asked her who or what motivates her to succeed, Beth simply said, “my family.”
