Danielle DeLay is Westview Health Care Center’s Employee of the Month for August. As a Certified Nursing Assistant, Danielle is a member of the strong team that makes up Westview’s Nursing Department. On a daily basis she can be found having positive interactions with residents, patients, their families, co-workers, and volunteers. Her home is Thompson, CT—and as this award indicates—she is well regarded by her community of colleagues.
In response to earning Employee of the Month, Danielle had this to say: “It is an absolute privilege to work at Westview, and I take pride in going above and beyond in order to ensure that every resident and patient receives the best possible care. There is no greater feeling in this world than helping all of the amazing people and their families that I meet day in and day out at Westview.”
Her statement reveals the full-spectrum of her considerations. As she provides excellent, skilled nursing care to the individuals at the Dayville facility, Danielle maintains awareness of the needs of the family or friends visiting a patient. This approach is likely rooted in her own experiences, because according to her, “family is everything.” Danielle loves spending time with her mother and father (Diane and Phillip), her brother and sister (Travis and Anycia), as well as her nieces and nephews: Wyatt, Waylon, Weston, Payton, and Savannah.
When she can, Danielle enjoys time fishing on one of our beautiful New England waterways or practicing her accuracy at the target range. Currently, she is also a full time student pursuing a degree as a Registered Nurse; a further example of her compassion as she looks to advance her knowledge in skilled nursing.
Of her dedication and strong, positive drive, Westview Administrator David Panteleakos remarked: “Danielle exhibits tremendous compassion through the care she provides. On many occasions, I have been made aware of her loving treatment towards patients, her caring considerations for families, and her hard-working contributions among colleagues. She absolutely makes the most of these gifts.”
