Bernice started with Arbor Terrace as a Resident Assistant in 2005, demonstrating a caring respectful manner with our assisted living residents. Bernice was able to please even the sharpest diamonds! In 2009 she moved into the Laundry Technician position when, in response to an increasing number of complaints from families, we centralized the laundry under one person’s direction. Bernice stepped into the job and owned it! She manages the laundry for all 60 of our residents, meeting families’ expectations and ours. We NEVER receive a complaint about clothes not being laundered properly, on-time, etc. Bernice is a wonderful example of a team player and a great role model for younger staff members. She is always on time and at work when she is scheduled. She wears her uniform with pride and always has everything in place. Bernice will be the first person to offer to help in other areas of our operations when needed. She has filled in for receptionist duties, has helped in the kitchen with dishes, served residents and families at our special events, decorated for parties – whatever needs to be done – Bernice will step in!
"It has been our pleasure to work with the various Arbor Terrace facilities of the greater Atlanta area since 2004. Our Arbor partners have shown great enthusiasm for expanding their employees' knowledge base as well outreaching to residents and their families. We have found the relationship with Arbor to be quite fruitful: the CHA gains an opportunity to train committed health professionals and to interact directly in a friendly setting with the aging community, while the Arbor staff benefits from high-quality education delivered from university-based, top ranked geriatricians and gerontologists. THe Emory Center for Health in Aging is committed to promoting healthy aging and to providing quality education to community members in our region. Our strong partnership with the Arbor Terrace facilities in the Atlanta area has afforded us many valuable opportunities to help fulfill this commitment."

"We moved our mother into the Evergreen (memory care) neighborhood at Arbor Terrace from another local community. She is a new person, much happier, and all of our stress levels have dropped dramatically."

"For the past year and a half, I have worked a part time job that has afforded me an education outside of school. My summer job that turned into a permanent job has taught me responsibility, efficiency, organization and most importantly, respect."
