2024 Nurse Recognition Rachel
Happy Nurses Week! National Nurses Week is celebrated May 6-12. This year’s theme by the American Nurses Association is Nurses Make the Difference.

Rachel Erickson, Licensed Practical Nurse with The Stafford boutique retirement community, truly makes a difference every day. She serves our residents with compassion within our independent and assisted living community in Lake Oswego, Oregon.

Here’s what one of our team members shared about Rachel:

Rachel Erickson joined The Stafford two years ago but began her health career at The Pearl at Kruse Way 15 years ago. We can typically agree that nurses, especially those in long-term care, are natural givers who want to see people comfortable, happy, and loved no matter what their circumstances may be.

Rachel joined The Stafford when things were in transition. She quickly brought a sense of calm and structure to the department. This created a boosted sense of morale among the team. They were learning new things and feeling more confident in their positions.

Rachel continued to step in and make herself available to help all community departments. She changed lightbulbs, pressure washed fencing, and washed dishes for events.

Rachel is a mentor in our region as well. She has implemented classes for training various assisted living positions and continues to guide and coach her mentees.

I admire Rachel for her dedication to our residents. She makes us all want to be better.
