Work with Meaning

Work with Meaning

If you ask any of our staff members about our mission and core values, you’ll see faces that light up with passion and commitment. You’ll likely hear personal accounts of  how our mission provides a fulfilling purpose to the work they do.

And while it’s always wonderful to hear our staff members talk about their connection to our mission and core values, it’s even more inspiring to see them live that commitment in their daily interactions with residents. The words of our mission are brought to life with every act of kindness, with every enthusiastic idea for a new community activity, and with every shared moment of togetherness.

A few staff persons share how they work with meaning…

Although I currently work primarily as a waitress, I am also a Certified Nursing Assistant – and sometimes, I’m able to use those skills to help out at Dock Woods. One of my favorite things to do is to help people find new friends. Just recently, I introduced a new resident to another wonderful lady in the dining room, and they really hit it off. I enjoy seeing people come together – and I love playing a role in making that happen.

Waitress, Souderton Mennonite Homes CNA, Dock Woods

We get a lot of great feedback on how clean Dock Woods is – and we are happy to play a role in the pride residents take in the beauty of their home. We also support a wide range of events, and it’s always fantastic to see the residents come to the event and not have to worry about logistics at all. They can just pull up a chair and enjoy each other – and it’s very rewarding to witness that on a regular basis.

I also find joy in serving as a cheerleader for my teams. There’s a lot of repetition in what we do every day, and I believe that helping promote an atmosphere of thanks and recognition helps people feel good about what they’re doing.
