Renaissance Adult Day Services is answering a call from the public and offering free classes on Ebola at each of their three locations in Brooklyn and the Bronx. Designed by Eileen Parenti, RNC, BSN, Renaissance Executive Director, and Lena Hymson, RN BA MS MSN, Director of Patient Services at Renaissance, the seminars will explain what Ebola is, how it spreads, what treatments are available as well as help people to understand the risk of exposure, the signs and symptoms and how to protect themselves.

When asked why the program was created, Parenti said, “We are an active part of each of the communities we’re in, and we hear from our patients and the community members that people are frightened about this disease.

Renaissance Adult Day Services – A Role Model for Many

Eileen and Mike

A ROLE MODEL FOR MANY ….MIKE SIMMONS DEMONSTRATES FATHER’S DAY DEDICATION AND RECEIVES THE RENAISSANCE AWARD OF EXCELLENCE FROM RENAISSANCE HOME HEALTH CARE AND ADULT DAY SERVICES

Mike Simmons is a security guard for Renaissance Home Health Care and Adult Day Services at the Bedford Center in Brooklyn located at 2625 Bedford Avenue. His assigned work schedule is Monday through Friday. But, that’s not enough for Simmons. He checks on the building on Saturdays and Sundays, too. Simmons explained it this way, “I believe that work is about going beyond the paycheck. It’s about commitment and dedication.”

On Father’s Day, June 15, 2014, this father of five and grandfather of five, certainly went beyond what was expected of him. He came by the Bedford Center to check on the building. It was around 9 a.m. and he saw the gate down from a block away. He immediately called 911, concerned that someone was inside. He learned that earlier that morning there had been a serious car accident, where someone crashed into the wall of the building. Thankfully, no one was in the Center at the time and that part of the building was being renovated so no services are currently provided there. Simmons did not want to leave the building unattended. Even though it was Father’s Day, he stayed until 7 or 8 p.m. waiting for the construction workers to secure the building. He went home just to grab a bite, and then returned, staying overnight.

When Simmons was asked why he came on the weekends and why he stayed so long that day when no one was in danger, he explained it this way. “It’s like when you go on vacation, and you leave your light burning in your house. I’m that light. I’m a deterrent. If anyone should see me coming back and forth, it keeps a certain element away because they know someone is here.”

Eileen Parenti, Executive Director of Renaissance Home Health Care and Adult Day Services, was overwhelmed by Simmons’ dedication, even on Father’s Day and on June 23, 2014, she presented him with “The Renaissance Award of Excellence”. “Mike is the kind of employee who truly goes above and beyond. He is a valued member of our organization and everyone appreciates him. I am honored to present him with our Award of Excellence.”

With no time for a Father’s Day celebration this year, Simmons said, “My kids understand how committed I am to what I do. They know how I feel and I consider it a blessing that God had me in the right place at the right time. Life is allowing God’s will to go forth. If that happens, you are always where you are supposed to be and it will turn out alright. In this case, that’s evident.” Simmons’ children and grandchildren truly have an outstanding role model to follow.
