This week we are profiling our amazing Business Office Manager in Forest Grove Care Center (Forest Grove, Oregon), Genelle Davis. Starting with Prestige Care in 1993, Genelle has been working at Prestige Care for nearly 26 years! Genelle recalls, “when I started we had 13 buildings. But now, it’s larger. It was founded by the Delamarters whose mother had a home. It’s a family-oriented business and it’s always felt that way for them.” When we asked why she stayed with Prestige Care, Genelle went back to referencing the family dynamic in the workplace and beyond. “You feel that family feeling here at Prestige” she says.
What really brings Genelle back to her job for the past 26 years? “I feel like I’m giving back to humanity by being here by working with the elderly. I have something to offer them. Some don’t have anyone in the world and I am able to give to them. They have a friend in me. That’s the part that keeps me here.”
We asked Genelle why she likes working in the skilled nursing space, as opposed to the other areas of healthcare where she could spend her days. She mentions the strong relationships she gets to build with her residents: “It’s the longevity of knowing my patients….in a hospital setting, they come and go but here, we are their friends for a while. We get to be their friends for a lot of them, their last chapter and I love that.”
