Staff Testimonials

I have been a nurse for twenty years and am very proud to say thirteen of those years have been spent here at the Hannah B.G. Shaw Home. My co-workers are some of the best staff I have ever worked with. We maintain the highest standards of care, while being in the forefront of the newest care modules. I feel as though the residents and staff are an extension of my family. I am truly grateful to be part of this wonderful Home.

The Shaw Home has changed my perspective significantly on Nursing Homes, this place is unbelievable! A diamond in the rough (IN EVERY WAY) for staff, residents & family members/guests. I’ve been employed here for a few months & it still never seizes to amaze me; the care, the activities, the meals, the amenities, and the list goes on…
