WELLINGTON — Wendy Delacruz, housekeeping/laundry supervisor at Wellington Care Center (WCC), has been with the facility for nine and a half years. In addition to her supervisory duties, she helps out as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) when needed.
“I take pride in my job and love what I do for our residents,” said Delacruz. “My job is to maintain the facility and keep it clean, odor free and in an orderly manner to prevent infection. Housekeeping provides the residents, their families and our staff with the safest environment possible.”
The laundry staff makes sure each tenant’s laundry is done and delivered every day.
“A few things we have put in place to prevent infection, especially COVID-19, are making sure we have enough supplies and chemicals to keep the facility clean and sanitized,” Delacruz said. “We have also stopped visitation to keep the virus out of our facility and we have hired extra staff to disinfect at night.”
The employees of WCC protect residents by using proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), washing hands and keeping resident rooms and facility clean by disinfecting all contact surfaces often.
“I enjoy working for WCC and enjoy my co-workers,” Delacruz added. “I am very grateful for my hardworking staff! Cleaning, wearing the necessary PPE and practicing good hygiene are the foundation of infection control at WCC.”
Delacruz also participates in the community by helping deliver meals on wheels when needed and supporting other community events when possible.
The staff of WCC feels blessed to have employees such as Delacruz.
