Meet Dawn, Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)

A True Super Star

At Browning Masonic Community, our employees are super stars! We recently sat down with Dawn, LPN so she could share her story and the success she’s had at Browning Masonic Community. Meet Dawn, a Browning Masonic Community Super Star!

How long have you worked at Browning Masonic Community?

I have worked at BMC for four years this past April. I went to Bowling Green School of Practical Nursing.  The school is no longer in existence. I have been a nurse for 28 years.

What makes Browning Masonic Community different than other senior living communities?

BMC is a small community and I really love that. This is a personalized community where everyone knows each other. I know all the residents as well as their families.  Our staff is very close, and we’re always there to take care of each other.

My last position was in a larger community.  I feel like I can do a better job of caring for our residents since I can get to know them easier due to the size of BMC.  I know what works best for them and what makes them happy. Making them happy makes me happy too.

What do your daily responsibilities include?

My responsibilities are the same every day, and these responsibilities must be handled precisely to ensure the best possible care for our residents whether I am working in Assisted Living or the Pathways Memory Support Neighborhood. I pass medications as well as monitor our residents’ health conditions. I provide treatments for anyone that needs this type of specialized care.  Simply being there for our residents is a very important part of every day.

Keeping in touch with our residents’ families is also a task that needs to be detailed.  I want to make sure I provide the correct information in a manner that is easy to understand. I schedule the appointments for their family members and determine if transportation is needed. I try to make it easy so families can coordinate their availability to attend these appointments with their loved ones.

What are some of your favorite benefits Browning Masonic Community offers?

I love the 12-hour shifts.  You don’t find that everywhere.  I only need to work three days to put in a full week.  That gives me the opportunity to enjoy time with my family.

Another benefit is spending time with our residents to make sure they enjoy life.  I love seeing the smile on their faces.  Working at BMC and advocating for our residents is one of the best benefits I know of.

What would you tell a prospective employee about Browning Masonic Community?

I would tell a prospective applicant, “You are really going to like working here.” You will see that the management team is very supportive, as are your co-workers. Everyone wants to make sure that you succeed.  There is a feeling of home that exists at BMC that you simply can’t find everywhere.

Why do you love working at Browning Masonic Community?

BMC has a small-town atmosphere.  Everyone knows everyone else and cares about them, not just as co-workers, but as people who are their friends. I enjoy my co-workers and the residents.  I enjoy coming to work every day.

The bottom line, Browning Masonic Community, part of The Ohio Masonic Communities is a great company to work for.
