“St. Matthew has been my home away from home for over 30 years! It is truly a place of excellent care to residents and employees. It is a great feeling at the end of the day knowing that I had the privilege to make a difference in my residents’ lives, or that I had the ability to encourage family members and friends. I still learn something new every day to add to the reservoir of knowledge gained working here. I thank St. Matthew for the opportunity to grow professionally and spiritually through my wonderful years of service here.”
Mariamma Thomas, R.N.

“Working with residents is a wonderful learning experience for me. There is always conversation when I work with them. They give me good advice, and we often talk about food; sometimes we even exchange recipes! I’ve been here 15 years, and I wouldn’t change a thing.”
Lydia Rutkowski, Restorative C.N.A.
“I enjoy my work here at St. Matthew because I get paid to make people smile! I work in the recreation services department and coordinate our LifeBalance program, so I have plenty of opportunity for fun and smiles. Serving the senior community is an absolute joy. Seniors have lived long and interesting lives and I find it very fulfilling to learn about them and their experiences. This is a place where no two days are alike - we have to be able to think on our toes, as well as be extremely compassionate, caring, patient and flexible.”
Cathy Burchard, Recreation Services
