Bob McGuire expresses thanks to frontline staff for their efforts over the past 10 weeks caring for the individuals we serve, not only addressing their medical needs but, through their compassion and genuine concern, keeping the residents at Bayville and in our homes happy and content.  As we all now face the tumultuous times in our country, may we extend that care and support for one another.

“Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly and most underrated agent of human change.”   – Bob Kerry

Mental Health Awareness Week is recognized May  18 – 24.  In this video, Bob McGuire, Executive Director of CP Nassau is joined by Sharon Rothstein, Director of the Adult Day Programs at the Agency.  Both extend sincere thanks to our Psychology and Social Work Staff who have done an amazing job of helping participants, staff and family members in these challenging times.  Sharon also mentions the resources and help available for those who want to access it.  The caring and kindness of all at the Agency is certainly helping to help get us though these stressful days.

The Mental Health Foundation chose to focus on the power and potential of kindness as their theme for this special week. Their organization’s research shows that protecting mental health is going to be central to coping with and recovering from the coronavirus pandemic – with the psychological and social impacts likely to outlast the physical symptoms of the virus.

The Mental Health Foundation has chosen kindness because of its singular ability to unlock our shared humanity.  According to the MHF,” kindness strengthens relationships, develops community and deepens solidarity. It is a cornerstone of our individual and collective mental health. Wisdom from every culture across history recognizes that kindness is something that all human beings need to experience and practice to be fully alive.”

THANK YOU TO ALL AT CP NASSAU WHO WORK HARD AND SPREAD KINDNESS ON A DAILY BASIS, NO MATTER THE WEEK OR THE CHALLENGE.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once stated, ” To know even one live has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” This could not ring truer than now when we realize the skills, compassion and contributions these two dedicated nurses along with our whole frontline medical team have displayed in caring for the individuals with disabilities we serve at CP Nassau.

Bob McGuire thanks Arios Eugene and Stacy Bryan and in turn, they thank their team

Tom Landry, renowned football coach once said, “Leadership is a matter of having people look at you and gain confidence, seeing how you react. If you’re in control, they’re in control.

“During this pandemic we are fortunate at CP Nassau and CP Bayville to have dedicated people who work hard and inspire others to do their best and make the situation better for all involved.
