I have worked with Erwin Health Care Center for currently 3 months. I have never worked for a more family-oriented facility. The administration is always understanding of employee and family needs. I love working at a place where I know the residents always come first and are treated with a Christ-like sensitivity. When you work at Erwin Health Care Center, you are not just an employee; You are part of a family! I am also the grand¬daughter of a resident that was in this facility, and there is nowhere else I would trust to take care of someone I love. She was treated with dignity and respect every day she was at Erwin Health Care Center. You will not find a facility anywhere in the state that can rival the care and dedication of the staff, in particular the nurses who work here.
The staff are wonderful, caring people. They go out of their way to help visitors and patients. Everyone has been so friendly and welcoming. I cannot say enough kind words about the place.
