Basseterre, St Kitts and Nevis: The government of the twin-island Federation of St Kitts and Nevis is pleased to announce that around ten (10) elderly care assistants have been hired by Cardin Home on February 17, 2023 (Friday). The assistants were welcomed by the centre after they completed their elderly care certificate course at the Division of Health Sciences’ Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC).

Cardin Home has been regarded as one of the primary elderly care facilities on the island of St Kitts; in May 2023, it will celebrate 96 years of service. The centre has continuously seen growth and has evolved for the better. The government has stated that hiring new staff will surely assist in providing the highest level of care to the citizens and residents of the nation.

Dr Rondalyn Dennis-Bradshaw, the Principal Nursing Officer at home, thanked Prime Minister of the Federation, Dr Terrance Drew, for his assistance and stated, “The Health Ministry is demonstrating that the institution’s goals are being upheld under the leadership of Prime Minister and Health Minister, Dr Terrance Drew. Under his leadership, the government has made a significant investment in the care of the elderly population of St Kitts, including the residents here at the Cardin Home.”

She further mentioned that the administration is glad about all the new implementations and can assure that these changes will help in offering proper, attentive, respectful, as well as safe care that is dignified, respectful and compassionate.

Along with this, during the orientation session, Dr Jenson Morton, Director of Health Institutions, addressed all the attendees and stated that every person on this planet deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, especially the residents of the Cardin Home as they are one of the most vulnerable sections of the society.

Following this, a brief period of interaction was organised for the senior nursing staff members who recently joined Cardin Home. The staff members expressed their joy and excitement and started their duty with building new and strong relationships with the residents.

In addition to this, Cardin Home also received ten new mattresses with two new bed frames and 24 resting chairs. This donation by the Minister of Health was praised by the administration of the Health care facility.
