Our caregivers take the time to learn meaningful details about each resident, creating a true one-on-one bonding experience. We truly understand what makes our residents light up, helping relationships with residents blossom into true friendships. Whether it’s giving words of encouragement, playing a rousing game of bingo, or reading pages aloud from their favorite novel, we go to great lengths to keep our residents smiling. This philosophy of personalized care makes it easier and more enjoyable for our residents to reach the goals they set for themselves.
As the Director of Nursing, Edie Morgan, RN, truly understands what it means to provide quality care for our senior residents while also respecting their independence and dignity. From personal experience watching her mother care for the elderly and her extensive nursing career, Edie is most passionate about caring for others and being supportive to family members as they transition loved ones into long-term care. So, it’s no surprise when residents say, “God has blessed you with a gift to care for the elderly.”
Edie brings 10-plus years of nursing experience in long-term care, coupled with a compassionate demeanor, to Eastridge and is a fantastic asset to our caring team. In addition to being a registered nurse, Edie is a member of the American Nurses Association and is a Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Nurse
Rachel Gates has a knack and passion for making a difference in our residents’ lives. Rachel brings a positive energy to Eastridge and expresses her love for this industry daily. She makes residents feel special by offering them a care experience where the magic is found in the small details.
Each gesture of thanks or appreciation that Rachel receives means just as much to her as the very first compliment she was paid by a resident.
With six years of long-term care experience and counting, Rachel continues to exceed expectations. Her strong background in customer service makes her a great addition to our team. Rachel is on the Board of Directors for the Vermillion Chamber of Commerce and serves as its Vice President of Marketing.
