An Attitude Of Gratitude

On Friday, January 21st, we received a phone call from the Haven Hospice asking if we had a Nail Tehnician available to perform services on two patients, in JFK Hospital, who were in the final phase of their lives .   I called one of our employees, Rossio , who was not scheduled to come in until the evening to ask if she would go to the hospital to perform the services.  She was thrilled to do so.  Rossio said that each patient had family members with them and they were so grateful to her for offering her time on a busy Friday to perform the wishes of their loved ones.  ” I am  the one who is grateful though,” Rossio told me during our conversation.  “To have the opportunity to give someone a caring touch in their final days and to  have their family witness human compassion from a stranger made my heart swell!” Rossio told me that ‘this is what it is all about-touching the lives of others” She was honored to have met two beautiful woman and fulfill their wishes.  Rossio’s experience is one of many that our spa team encounters on a daily basis. I am honored and grateful to work with a Spa Team who continually strive to ‘do what it takes’ to care for our clients and our community.  Whether it is performing Oncology Massages to clients with cancer to give them a nurturing touch, helping a young woman gain self confidence by giving her beautiful skin, or just holding the hand of a client during a  nail service to show that we care, our Spa Team will give of themselves to ensure that each client achieves a better sense of well-being.~Christie
