Love from Maplewood

Jan Weston is a nurse at Maplewood Assisted Living in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. Weston makes morning rounds on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday mornings to bring the residents of Maplewood their prescribed medicines. She helps take care of 30 plus elderly residents at Maplewood who need help with their daily lives. “There are 35 residents living here and there are only a couple that don’t need any help from me.” Weston said.

Weston has very loving relationships with the residents she cares for at Maplewood. One example is Vicky Zebarah. “I always come in to give her her medicine, and we will talk and she always gets a hug.” Weston said. “It’s something that we always do.”

Weston gives out the prescribed medicines to the residents at Maplewood anywhere from 6 a.m. to when breakfast starts at 8 a.m. “The prescriptions are always changing from week to week.” Weston said. “The dosage changes the pills change. They need to take this now, they don’t need to take this anymore, and so on.”
