“We talk quite a bit about “compassionate care” here – so much so that perhaps we no longer fully appreciate the power those combined words hold. As I make my way through corridors here at The McAuley and Saint Mary Home, though, I see it… As our residents take me aside to tell me their stories, I hear it. Your empathy, your respect and your ability to see God in each individual entrusted to your care sets you apart from other caregivers. The way you listen, your gentle voice and strong shoulders – you give truly compassionate care every day. As professionals, you have different talents and unique attributes, but compassionate caretaking is a gift you share – a gift passed down by our foundresses, the Sisters of Mercy — and one that you give away every single day. This is the way you make our care different and that, as individuals, you make a difference in so many lives.”

President and Chief Executive Officer of The Mercy Community
