I chose to go to Concord since they took wonderful care of my husband. The staff at Concord are great! They were always there for me and took great care of me from the nurses to the rehab. The Kosher Program is unbelievable. They got me specific Kosher yogurts that I had every day. I had Rivky’s personal cellphone, and she arranged for Shabbos food and set my table to ensure I had everything I needed. She visited on Purim and took great care to ensure I was well taken care of. I knew she was just a phone call away and would assist me.
The Concord staff are amazing! They are very attentive, friendly and always available to help. I came back a second time for the rehab. They accommodated me with foods tailored to my likes. Rehab is unbelievable – they have such patience and are really on top of things. They encouraged me and worked with me. I wouldn’t have been able to stand on my own without them.
I felt at home with food that is fully kosher and having Rivky, the community liaison, check in on me every day. I was provided with a Shabbos package each week with all items necessary for Shabbos. Rivky made me feel like a VIP! I had her direct number and she would personally attend to my concerns.
We had an absolutely spooktacular time this Halloween season. Festivities included a community Trunk or Treat and creative pumpkin painting, not to mention some truly fabulous Halloween treats! Our staff and residents also all had a fantastic time showing off their terrific costumes in our Halloween costume parade – big congratulations to all the winners!
In honor of Veterans Day, we celebrated and expressed our gratitude to our 28 residents who previously served in the United States Military. We thank you all so much for your bravery and your service to this country; it will never be forgotten.
In October, our Activities Director brought in her very own adorable dogs, Saucalita and Zayda. The two furry friends were a joy for our residents, and it was an absolutely gorgeous day for some always-welcome fur baby therapy.
As a Dietary Aide Debbie does a little bit of everything; she makes desserts, prepares snacks, and interviews residents to discover their dietary preferences. She enjoys getting to know the residents and their stories, and she loves her wonderful coworkers and having a great boss in Choi, our Food Service Director.
Debbie, who resides in nearby Bayville, has been an invaluable part of our team here at Concord for many years, and we are so appreciative for her skills and all that she does for the Center. She works hard so that our residents receive the highest level of care, and for that, we are eternally grateful. Thank you, Debbie!
Don’t know what they’re doing at other rehab facilities today, but this is what we’re doing today at Concord. It’s a beautiful happy day here with residents and staff. There’s a lot of happiness going around and a whole lot more to give! ❤️
I live in the UK and my elderly aunt who lives in the USA required nursing care and rehabilitation. We were advised by friends of how great the care is at Concord I must admit they have surpassed my expectations. I do not know how I would have managed without the input and care given by Josephine. She is an asset to this care home. She has gone above and beyond in the help and care she has given to me and my aunt. Due to covid I have been unable to travel and Josephine has been my liaison with my aunt. She started as a contact but we see her more as family She shops for her in her own time and nothing I ask of her is too much trouble. I cannot fault the care my aunt gets.
Starting her career at Concord as a Staff Coordinator, Tish was promoted to Human Resources Manager and eventually Human Resources Director where her duties include, but are not limited to, payroll, employee scheduling, conducting background checks, reporting annually to OSHA, and ensuring our facility is in compliance with staffing ratios 24/7.
Tish is a born and bred Lakewood gal and still lives in the area just minutes from our center. She has a business degree and has worked as a CMA (Certified Medication Assistant) in a number of long term care and assisted living facilities prior to coming to Concord. “I’ve always been drawn to these settings,” she says. “I have a passion for wanting to care for the staff, residents and patients here.”
Tish is the proud grandmother of four grandchildren. In her leisure time she enjoys shopping and reading.Thank you, Tish for going above and beyond in supporting our staff so they can give our patients and residents the best possible care.
