Farewell and all the Best! Even though Jillian Jones-Reid is retiring, we are not saying farewell, just see you later. Jillian is planning on coming in for 2 days every second week to help with payroll, we all say “thank you” for that!! Jillian came to us twelve years ago and worked in laundry and housekeeping, then six years ago she transferred to administration helping with the charts and scheduling. Over the last year, she got involved with payroll along with the scheduling. Jillian and her husband, Ed, reside in Quispamsis. She has three daughters and between them six wonderful grandchildren, 4 grandsons and 2 granddaughters. She says it seems surreal and that she still doesn’t feel like she is retired. She has numerous interests outside work and is looking forward to enjoying them. She would like to do some travelling and enjoys going to her trailer up country. She loves making jewelry, quilting and working in her garden but best of all she says she’ll enjoy spending time with her 6 beautiful grandchildren. Thank you for all your work over the past 12 years and God bless you!

Volunteer Appreciation Kaila Miller graduated from Harbour View High this year, and came to Kennebec Manor through the SEED program. Having a caring mother, like Gillian Miller, a nurse manager at Kennebec, is an asset in learning how to care for the elderly. Kaila lives at home in Lower Greenwich with 2 younger sisters. She is planning on attending UNB Fredericton this fall to take her Bachelor of Science, majoring in biology. Kaila is a very energetic young woman with a pleasant personality and a winning smile. She helps in the activity department showing great enthusiasm in everything she’s asked to do. Kaila loves working for the environment and has won scholarships that will benefit her in university.

Farewell and Welcome! We are sad to announce Tracy Scott, our Director of Care will be retiring at the end of the summer. Tracy has been with us almost back to the opening of KWCC and has worked for both of our homes. Shortly after arriving, she went on a life changing journey (Eden training) and immediately wanted to spread the many benefits of Eden. Tracy has been the driving force behind this philosophy and wants the very best quality of life for the individuals we serve. She has kept us on track to achieve our Eden certification, the first home in NB to accomplish this. Although Tracy wants to downsize and spend more time with her family / grandchildren, we are very happy that she wants to continue the journey of Eden for our homes. Tracy will be working part time training and coaching staff in Eden as well as helping out on our new Eden project in Millidgeville. We wish Tracy all the best and look forward to continuing the great journey we are on. I am pleased to welcome both Tammy Allaby and Jane Logan to our family. They will both be taking on the role of Director of Care / House Leader over the summer. Tammy was born in Fredericton, NB but grew up in beautiful Cambridge Narrows. She earned her diploma in Nursing from the Saint John School of Nursing and three years later graduated with her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing from Dalhousie University. Tammy started her career in long term care. She worked private duty, acute care in Fredericton and then spent 9 years working in the Cardiac Care Unit at the Saint John Regional Hospital before happily returning to long term care in 2008 at Kings Way Care Centre where she was the Nurse Manager on KV Neighborhood.

Farewell and Welcome! In 2010, Tammy became Clinical Manager for Kings Way and Kennebec Manor, working closely with the Director of Care in managing the two homes. In 2011, Tammy began a new journey, transitioning into a House Leader at Kennebec Manor. She has embraced person centered care and the Eden philosophy and is dedicated to making each day the best it can be for the elders that call Kings Way and Kennebec home. Away from work, Tammy is very busy with her family and can usually be found at one of the local rinks where her daughter and son both play hockey almost year round. Jane is joining our family this week and will be starting her career with us at KWCC. Jane’s career in Nursing has spanned a variety of settings over the thirty years. She completed her Nursing education at the Saint John School of Nursing, Dalhousie University and University of New Brunswick, earning her BN and MN. She has worked in acute care, post-secondary education, and research environments at the Saint John Regional Hospital and UNB Saint John. Recent experience with WorkSafeNB provided Jane the opportunity to work with the long term care sector, addressing occupational health and safety issues in client care. She looks forward to sharing her expertise with care providers at both homes and is interested in further understanding how the Eden philosophy contributes to both a meaningful day for elders and staff. Jane is also very excited about being part of such a progressive environment at Kings Way and Kennebec. Congratulations to Tracy and Tammy and a warm welcome to Jane!
