Employee Spotlight: Meet Matthew
Minnewaska Community Health Services values the people who work every day to execute the mission of caring for those who need our services. Meet Matthew, a compassionate Caring Attendant who works for Hoffman Senior Living. We asked him some questions to get to know him better!
Why did you start working for Minnewaska Community Health Services?
I started working in health care as a dietary aid about 3 years ago. My interest in working for MCHS came when I found out Hoffman had built a new senior living facility. It peaked my interest because I wanted to be located closer to home.
What is your favorite part of your job?
The residents! Being able to help them and make their day is very rewarding. I have had many jobs throughout the years in various fields, but healthcare has become a passion for me. I get to take care of a generation that have different viewpoints so you learn to look at things from a new perspective.
Is there a part of your job that stands out to you that people should know about?
My coworkers and I run our senior living facility like a family. You get to know each resident on a deep level. Not every day is great, but the life skills I have attained at MCHS are incomparable. Being able to take care of the residents so they can maintain as much independence as possible in their own home is a purpose I can get behind. I look forward to visiting with residents every day!
Thank you Matthew for speaking with us for this mini interview! Matthew says he plans to continue schooling for health care administration in the future. We are sure the passion he displays for caring for others will serve him well in any field!
