Samantha Ploughman is a CNA at the Laurels of Mount Pleasant.
“It’s my job to get them up and moving!” says Ploughman.
Ploughman is responsible for getting people dressed and out of bed and helping with rehabilitation. She will get people walking as far as they can and sometimes even farther.
“She’s better know as slave driver, task master around here,” explained Jimmy, one of the long term care patients at the Laurels.
Ploughman has worked the Laurels for five years now and has enjoyed every minute.
“I love my job. I really do,” said Ploughman, “These people are what makes it so great.”
While there are over 100 residents, both short and long term care, Ploughman knows all of the by name and tries to visit as many of them as possible each day.
