On Tuesday, June 9th, a brand new class graduated from the Chelsea Jewish Academy.  Eight Chelsea Jewish Lifecare employees, all on staff at the Peabody Campus, graduated from the Academy. Initially, these employees underwent rigorous interviews and pre-testing to qualify for the Academy. They then fulfilled 127.5 hours of required classroom instruction and hands-on training, in addition to extensive homework assignments.
Now that graduation is over, the next step is for the group to take the Nurse Aide Competency Evaluation through the American Red Cross. This will enable the employees to become Certified Nursing Assistants within the state of Massachusetts. Once certified, the employees will begin working as Shahbazim at the Jeffrey and Susan Brudnick Center for Living, which is currently transitioning to a Green House® model of care. In the interim, the staff will begin rotations with their mentors on the second floor of the skilled nursing facility.
Congratulations Chelsea Jewish Academy Graduates!
