Community Care employees recognized as “Notable Heroes in Healthcare”

In December, BizTimes Milwaukee recognized Community Care in its special “Notable Heroes in Healthcare” section. More specifically, the recognition was for our leaders and staff who provide care for retired Catholic sisters in several Milwaukee-area convents. 

It goes without saying, 2020 was a difficult year, especially for anyone working in healthcare. Throughout the pandemic, our staff showed just how committed they are to providing the best possible care to our members.

From BizTimes Milwaukee: As the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic set in, colleagues at Brookfield-based Community Care Inc. – particularly those assigned to the Milwaukee-area convents that Community Care serves — met the challenge of caring for members under incredibly stressful and challenging circumstances.

Some Community Care employees care for retired Catholic nuns from the Schools Sisters of Notre Dame, the School Sisters of St. Francis, and the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi.

When COVID-19 first entered the convents in February, little was known about coronavirus. The sisters, most of whom are in their 90s, Live, eat and worship together. While fundamental to their way of life, communal living also created risk for the sisters.

Staff had to find new and creative ways to engage the sisters —physically, mentally, and spiritually. With each new development, the Community Care staff became stronger and more confident. They have always been extremely protective of the sisters, but never more so than during this crisis.

The pandemic brought the staff and sisters closer together. It also strengthened the bonds between the caregivers. Despite long hours, challenging conditions, and the fear this pandemic caused, the sisters’ care remained the priority.

Come join our team of heroes. Check out our job openings.

We offer wide range of rewarding opportunities anyone who enjoys team collaboration, wants to be part of a mission-driven organization, and shares our mission to help elderly individuals and adults with physical and intellectual disabilities continue to live as independently as possible in the community.
