Appreciating all those volunteers

PLATTSBURGH Meadowbrook Healthcares administrator was recently seen waiting on tables! No, he hasnt taken on a second job, he and several other members of the Meadowbrook Activities, Social Service and Community Relations team treated many of their volunteers to a wonderful lunch on Tuesday to show their appreciation for all that they do for both the residents and the staff. Richards said that in the 20 years that hes been an administration one thing has remained constant - that is the teamwork necessary between the staff and the community to assure the well-being of the residents. Without the music, the religion, the crafts, the reading and the fun provided by the many dedicated volunteers, most nursing homes would likely be pretty dull and dismal places to be. Volunteerism, he said, also helps lighten up the workload of the nursing home staff.
