In Honor of Professional Healthcare Social Workers Month, we recognize our very own social worker, Luci Mendoza. Social Workers have many duties in a nursing facility. They help the patient understand the details of and adjust to their medical condition. They also develop comprehensive plans to help patients. This includes helping them transition from hospital care to a personal healthcare environment by assisting and implementing necessary changes in lifestyle, diet, and housing. Luci graduated in 1991 from Baylor University with a Bachelors in Biology and a Masters in Gerontology, and started her career in social work in 1996. She has been married for 32 years and has 3 children. She has worked for Arden Place for the past 3 years. She said that what she loves most about her job is helping her patients get the necessary help that they need in order to have a successful stay at our facility. We would like to show our appreciation to Mrs. Luci for everything that you do to go above and beyond for our residents.
Happy Social Workers Month!
