Helping Dreams Come True

CNA Saves the Day Recently, an exceptional employee at Riverway Assisted Living and Memory Care, Jennifer Groves, saved the day by shutting off the main water valve when a pipe burst during an especially cold night. 200 gallons a minute was streaming down the walls and staircase. Ironically, she was trained the day before on how to shut it off. She laughingly said, “While being shown where the water main was and how to shut it off, I was thinking that I was never going to need to do this.” As you can see, Jennifer is always on her toes while working the 10 pm - 6 am shift, which is why she is the employee of the month at Riverway Assisted Living and Memory Care in South Jordan. She has been a CNA for only 4 months, but has been in healthcare her whole life. Likewise, her mother just retired from nursing after 30 years of caring for others. “My mom is my hero”, Jennifer said. “The elderly are so sweet and happy and I love to hear them tell stories from their life.” “I feel so blessed that I can share my love of caring for others at Riverway- they are such a great company. I would want my own parents to live here at Riverway. It’s clean and new and the staff is happy- we’re a good team,” she said. The Riverway staff goal is to provide a home that looks and feels just like the one that their residents have lived in all of their lives. They also want to provide a great working environment for their caregivers and make sure that they are dedicated to providing the best care and services to the residents. “When the company treats their employees good they in turn treat the residents good, and Brandon Hess, the administrator, takes such great care of us!”
