Dorothy Austin is an award-winning journalist and feminist who was born in Necedah, Wisconsin. She graduated from Marquette University in 1940 with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism. During World War II, Dorothy volunteered for the American Red Cross and worked as a staff assistant overseas in Italy and North Africa, and was a photographer before she started her career in journalism.

In 1966, she attended the National Organization for Women Conference (NOW), and was the only member of the press to attend the conference. Some members of NOW wanted to evict her from the meeting, but after a vote they allowed her to stay. Dorothy’s articles on women’s issues were very important in educating women and the general public, and her articles eventually contributed to NOW’s recruitment process.

Westmoreland Care and Rehabilitation Center held a Remembrance Ceremony this past Friday on September 11, 2015. It is hard to imagine that it has been 14 years since one of the worst events in American history.

We started the ceremony by lowering our flag to half-staff. Around 10:30 a.m., staff and elders gathered around the flag. Connor McChurch, CEO of Westmoreland Care and Rehab, read a poem titled, “If They Could Speak.” This is same poem that is located in the New York City Fire Museum on permanent display.

David Spears, Chaplain of Westmoreland Care and Rehab, followed the poem with a prayer for our country and the victims of 9/11. A few staff members and elders shared their memories of that day. Elders and staff then wrote on balloons words of encouragement, remembrance, and prayers for the victims and their families.

We then released the balloons into the sky. After the ceremony, the elders went back inside and wrote letters to the victims and their families.

It is important for our elders to not only receive care, but to give care, and on a day of grief for many people in this nation, our Elders offered their kind words and wisdom that only Elders seem to possess.

Kathy Turner, an elder of Westmoreland Care & Rehabilitation Center, is a former CNA. Kathy was a CNA for many years. Kathy said that her favorite part of about being a caregiver was the patients. She loved caring for people and said, “I would still do it today if I was able.”

Kathy doesn’t realize that every day she is still a caregiver. Every day you will see Kathy interacting with elders who are quiet, reserved, or maybe even unable to communicate with her.

I asked Kathy why she helps elders in our facility and she stated, “I want them to know someone is thinking of them. They deserve the attention, and I want to help as much as I can. I think about everyone in the facility every day.”
