Campbell County Health is proud of its employees, and we want the CCH family
and the Campbell County community to know about the good work that they
do for this organization.
Meet Kimberly Maser,
CNA, who works on the Cottonwood neighborhood at
The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center. For those who don’t know, this neighborhood is part of the
Memory Support Unit for residents who suffer from dementia. Kim has worked for CCH for a little
more than two years.
“I started as a volunteer at a hospital in California in 1990, and
realized very quickly that I could make a difference in the lives of people
in a positive way. So, in 1994 I became a Certified Nursing Assistant
(CNA). It’s a very emotionally rewarding career—knowing that
I will be the difference between comfort and pain, happiness and sadness,
and even life and death for the patients and residents that I help,” says Kim.
“When Kim is working her residents are calm and well cared for. She
takes time to find out what their schedule and routine is so she can help
them be as independent as possible,” says Jonni Belden, RN, Vice
President of Home Care Services. “Kim also helps provide staff education
related to dementia and family education. Kim is an excellent mentor to
new staff and is an outstanding team player.”
We asked Kim what she likes most about working for CCH, and what excellence
every day means to her. Check out her response:
“I like working for CCH because everyone who works here truly does
care and have compassion for their residents and patients. That’s
why I love working in the Memory Support Unit at The Legacy. My coworkers
are some of the most caring people. We have a tough job working with dementia
residents, but my coworkers are passionate about their job. My coworkers
and residents truly are my second family.
Excellence Every Day to me means that I come to work with integrity, I
speak with a purpose, and I am committed to my job.”
Thank you, Kim for your compassionate care for the residents on the Cottonwood
neighborhood. We are thankful to have you on our team.
