Celina Health & Rehab resident honored by THCA

CELINA-Robbie Jones, a resident at Celina Health and Rehabilitation Center here, has been named by the Tennessee Health Care Association (THCA)/Tennessee Center for Assisted Living (TNCAL), to its annual Who’s Who in Tennessee Long-term Care. Honorees in this year’s Who’s Who recognition program include military heroes, educators, entertainers and other elders living in THCA/TNCAL member nursing homes and assisted living communities statewide.

Jones dedicated her life to the long-term care profession as a nursing assistant at Cumberland Valley Manor in Burkesville, Ky., for more than 25 years. Her former coworkers say she was an excellent nursing assistant and a true friend. As a resident of Celina Health and Rehabilitation Center, Jones keeps a watchful eye over the other residents.

Jones will receive a Who’s Who certificate of achievement during National Nursing Home Week, May 12-18, an event celebrating the staff, residents, volunteers and family members who contribute to the quality of life for those living in our nation’s long-term care facilities. Her profile will also be featured on THCA’s website, www.thca.org.

“This year, our theme was ‘Glory Days,’ and we asked our caregivers to help our residents relive the great times in their lives,” THCA Executive Director Jesse Samples said. “It is a privilege to recognize these men and women for their accomplishments. They have made many notable contributions to their communities and touched the lives of all who have known them.”

Since 1983, the Who’s Who in Tennessee Long-term Care program has recognized almost 2,000 outstanding individuals living in THCA/TNCAL member facilities who have made noteworthy contributions to society and helped to shape history through their actions.

Celina Health and Rehabilitation Center is a member of THCA/TNCAL, a nonprofit organization whose members include senior living communities throughout the state. For more information on long-term care in Tennessee, visit www.thca.org.
