A Note From Marty Goetz, River Garden Senior Services CEO

For the second year in a row, a hurricane has dealt a devastating blow to Northeast Florida and it’s going to take time for many to recover, including many of our staff.

 

And while I was out of the country during the storm, I knew that we were in excellent hands and confident that staff and residents entrusted to our care would be safe. As we now recover from Hurricane Irma, there is no doubt that our advanced preparations and response to the storm will be recorded as among the finest moments in the history of our agency.

 

On behalf of myself, senior staff, and our board of directors, we want you to know how profoundly grateful we are to staff at both River Garden and The Coves who worked tirelessly throughout the declared emergency to keep our residents and property safe. Staff were being challenged to balance the immediate needs of their families with those of our residents, and so many of you stepped forward to help us successfully navigate through this awful storm. Thank you for being so special and in making a difference.

 

Over these many years we’ve learned how to best prepare for storms; lessons learned from Hurricane Irma will make it possible for us to do even better in the future. We have often said that “River Garden is an outstanding care community because we have an outstanding care staff.” That claim has never been truer than during Hurricane Irma.

 

As we enter the Jewish High Holiday of Rosh Hashanah later this month, we wish you and your loved ones a Good, Sweet and Peaceful New Year.
