So what exactly does this mean?
Are we talking hotel here or assisted and skilled nursing?
It means nothing. This is the image and marketing that the California Armenian Home wants to portray, the outer appearances.lush gardens, statues donated by local artists (except one unnamed Croatian Artist wink wink) from the outside everything seems OK. The home guild, ani guild and other groups go through great measures to insure the outside is like a country club, even misuse of new signs complete with valet parking.
They are trying to hold onto the past glory days of the home and must realize they are over. The home has no Armenians in adminstrative positions but only in places of menial work ( 3 to be correct )out of over 100+ employees. Additionally there are currently only 17 Armenians in the facility as either a resident or skilled nursing patient out of 120 beds. The home wants money from the Armenian community by way of donations but offers nothing in return. How is it that Armenians become responsible for paying for the care of others and getting nothing in return except for a few meals in Armenian and weekly visits from the Armenian Churches? That is a high price tag for 17 Armenian residents, there are many many more Armenians at other facilities: Nazerene House, Fairwinds, San Joaquin Gardens, etc., Many who were told "we have no room for your family member" by the current Administrator Lubjica. Smart move Lubjica aka Yuba trying to remove as much Armenian residents and staff as possible.
Nice going Lubjica, trying to keep Armenian majority out is really paying off in donations (snicker giggles). Heard you were just at another Armenian funeral that you occasionally make an appearance at. We must tell you, your not wanted at our Churches sniffing around for donations from families? This funeral was the aunt of a former board member at CAH who dropped out because of the dirty politics and games you play. Continue aligning yourself with people who are desperate for a job and see how loyal they are. The dregs of society can only stay loyal to you for so long and that list of fired ex employees is getting longer and longer.
Lets go inside and find out what is really going on, compressor that broke down, poor lighting in rooms, shit show of a wall with donors names (90% of which are dead or no longer donate), beautiful dining areas, etc., There were even Christmas gifts bestowed on the residence that were country club style (worthless) bathrobes and shower gel. The bathrobes were stupid as now there will be over 50 people with the same robe and more cross contamination of clothing mixed over. The shower gel cannot be used at the California Armenian Home as they use a hospital issued soap from their distributors: McKesson, Cardinal, etc., But it makes for good appearances.
Take a look deeper at staff, stolen clothing, staff roaming around from their stations, giving oranges to diabetic patients, going freely into the board room, threatening to call police on vistors and family members, texting and photograhy on the floor, visable tattoos and other poor hygiene issues.
Lets hope the next Administrator at least has a degree in Health Care Administration and understands how to be civil and polite to all members of the Fresno Community. Instead of ---what is the word one board member uses to describe you ...ah yes "mean". Good for you Lubrication you managed to have a handful of people who support you, but there are many with deep pockets in places of power that are disgusted with you. You lack the professionalism, clout, intelligence or communication style to continue. No amount of face lifts will change that. In fact, one board member said he didn't notice a difference, but alas those outer appearances are important.
