When Mindy Egan needed to find a nursing home for her ailing father, she
had little experience in the matter. After researching her options, Mindy
chose the Southeast Georgia Health System Senior Care Center–Brunswick
because of the warm, professional attitude of the staff; its clean, bright
appearance; and the fact that it is owned by the Health System.
Mindy's father, Michael Evanick, was a resident at the Center for nine
months. Mindy visited him regularly and was touched by the small, meaningful
interactions she often witnessed between the staff and residents, such
as a team member stopping to hug a resident or sitting down for a quick
chat. Her concerns about her father's happiness disappeared as he
began to make new friends and participate in the Center's activities.
On the morning her father passed away, several of his caregivers gathered
around his bed with Mindy, sharing stories about his life at the Senior
Care Center, laughing and crying as they remembered him and consoled each other.
"The staff—all of them—are exceptional people," says
Mindy. "I can't adequately express how happy I am that Dad had
such a wonderful home for the last months of his life. I have no reservations
recommending the Senior Care Center to friends and neighbors."
