Mildred Fleischman celebrates 100th birthday with distinguished citizen proclamation

Surrounded by a room full of friends and loved ones, many of whom had flown in from states far away, Mildred Fleischman celebrated her 100th birthday in style with a party and champagne toast at Nazareth Home’s Clifton Campus. Special guest 9th District Metro Councilman Bill Hollander was in attendance to present Mildred with a proclamation naming her as a distinguished Louisville citizen.

Mildred Fleischman was born on September 7, 1922, in Willow Springs, Il., and grew up in Bedford Park, Il. She was the youngest of six siblings, five sisters and one brother. She graduated from Argo High School, and like her older siblings, she became employed by Corn Products in Argo, where she worked in the analytical lab for 23 years. 

After her first husband passed away, she met Roy Fleischman through sports car racing and became a sports car driver herself. They were married in 1963 and moved to Louisville, Ky., shortly after he bought B-Line Cab Company. Mildred volunteered countless hours throughout her life and later worked for the VA Hospital in the histology lab and retired in 1997.

Team Health is an integral part of Nazareth Home’s mental health care for elders

Team Health is an integral part of Nazareth Home’s mental health care for elders

At Nazareth Home, our work to provide compassionate care for the elders we serve would not be possible without the community partnerships we maintain. In fact, cooperation, or a belief in partnerships if said another way, is one of our corporate values. One exceptionally important partnership we value is with Team Health. 

Team Health offers a robust line of mental health programs, including psychiatry and psychology services. Nazareth Home’s work with the organization began in December 2020. 

Team Health’s services extend to both Nazareth Home’s Highlands Campus and Clifton Campus. The organization provides behavioral health, mental health and psychological services to Nazareth Home, including mental health diagnoses, along with management of medications related to mental health.

“The team approach at Nazareth Home ensures we can give the overall best care to the vulnerable population we serve, so we’re grateful for Team Health’s partnership as they provide specific expertise in geriatric mental health. As a person gets older, they can find themselves grieving losses, such as mobility and memory, so their psychological health becomes even more important than their physical health in the aging process,” said Dr. Bonnie Lazor, Nazareth Home’s medical director.

Team Health has also been critical in aiding Nazareth Home’s efforts to reduce unnecessary polypharmacy among elders, which is the use of multiple drugs by a single patient, through deprescribing. Team Health’s Dr. Adrian Pellegrini and his team have worked to develop a collaborative partnership with MedCare Pharmacy and Nazareth Home’s consultant pharmacist, Travis Timberlake, in assisting with gradual dose reductions and deprescribing of mental health medications such as antipsychotics, mood stabilizers, antidepressants, and more.

Personnel with Team Health visit both Nazareth Home campuses on a weekly basis for onsite visits with elders and their families. They also meet monthly with nursing leadership at Nazareth Home to review mental health medications and look for opportunities for gradual dose reductions.

“We value our partnership and communication with medical staff in providing excellent care for complex patients with challenging mental health needs,” said Dr. Adrian Pellegrini. “Using medications as needed, with a goal of reducing and deprescribing when possible, along with psychotherapy services has been instrumental in achieving these goals at Nazareth Home.”

Nazareth Home President/CEO Mary Haynes discusses employee culture amid ‘Best Places to Work’ recognition

Nazareth Home President/CEO Mary Haynes discusses employee culture amid ‘Best Places to Work’ recognition

Nazareth Home was recognized by Louisville Business First as one of the Best Places to Work in Greater Louisville for 2022. In addition to providing person-centered health and wellness services for individuals and families, one of Nazareth Home’s top priorities has always been to foster a positive work culture in which employees are valued and fulfilled in their career. 

In light of this honor, Nazareth Home President/CEO Mary Haynes was recently interviewed by Lisa Benson, President and Publisher of Louisville Business First, for the business journal’s “Executive Insights” online video series. During the interview, Haynes discusses the strategic leadership factors behind Nazareth Home’s employee culture.

Haynes explains that as an organization sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, Nazareth Home embodies the charisms of the sisters, one of which is “hospitality.” At Nazareth Home, this extends not only to acceptance of an individual, but also acceptance of their unique views, choices and perspectives.

“That is very important to us, and we’re very proud that it is picked up on by people who both come to visit here and by the people who live and work here,” she said.

A key foundation for building a positive employee culture at Nazareth Home is emphasizing trust among employees. Haynes said this starts with having integrity in leadership.

“Everything we do at Nazareth Home, every action we take is to build trust and integrity and strong relationships,” she said.

Effective communication is also key, Haynes said. She said this became especially evident amid COVID-19, as new safety precautions were implemented and multiple modes of communication were implemented to keep employees, elders and their families up-to-date.

“Our communication really stepped up because we were 100 percent dependent on each other,” she said. “Plus, we had to keep the elders informed and we had to keep their families informed. Communication became a daily priority and I think that transparency and the accountability we used during that time positioned us to be where we are today.”

In addition to experiencing a great employee culture, employees at Nazareth Home also are provided with competitive pay, exceptional benefits and rewarding interactions with the elders they serve.
