Staff Spotlight – Janan Duru, Licensed Practical Nurse

“My colleagues are supportive. We are like family,” – Janan

Janan is a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who works at Evergreen House, long term care (LTC) facility located in North Vancouver.

About Evergreen House

As an LPN at Evergreen House, Janan works independently and collaboratively as a member of an interdisciplinary team. She assesses, plans, implements, evaluates, and documents client’s care, while providing support to clients and their families and working closely with the Registered Nurses on the team.

Evergreen House is a three-story, 284 bed LTC facility, which includes transitional care unit beds and landscaped gardens. The interdisciplinary team at Evergreen House provides individualized assessment and care planning to meet the physical, psychological, social, spiritual, and environmental needs of residents coping with chronic illness. Evergreen House is committed to providing a caring and supportive home-like community for residents and their families/friends.

Working in Long Term Care

LTC provides professional nursing services around the clock to people who are no longer able to stay at home safely. Janan is extremely passionate about her role and most enjoys speaking with the residents at the facility to ensure that their day always starts off with a smile.

While working through a pandemic in an LTC facility was challenging, as the need for more nurses and staff to support had increased, Janan enjoys the work environment at Evergreen House, saying that her “colleagues are supportive and we work collaboratively with each other. We are like family.” In addition to feeling the support from her coworkers, Janan explains that there are also service educators on the team who frequently provide support to the various roles at Evergreen House.

When the team has a spare moment, they like to come together in the nursing station for just a few seconds to dance and laugh with one another, Janan says.
