JoAnn Curry is many things to many different people. To her three grandchildren, this vibrant grandma is “Meemah”. Her friends know JoAnn as a HUGE Pittsburgh Steelers fanatic. Fellow colleagues and residents at Toms River’s Holiday Care Center, know her as “kind”, “loving” and “devoted”. Now, friends, family, and the entire Garden State can call JoAnn Curry by her well-deserved title, NJADONA (New Jersey Association Directors of Nursing Administration) LPN of the Year.

Donna Schwartzman CSW, LNHA, Administrator at Holiday Care Center, has been one of JoAnn’s most vociferous boosters. “JoAnn is a strong leader who is slight in stature, which is no match for the enormous ownership or energy that she demonstrates when caring for the residents and managing the staff. She understands the balance required of being kind and gentle, while being in a position of authority to get the best outcomes for residents and staff.”

TOMS RIVER, NEW JERSEY—One of the area’s premier nursing care facilities, Holiday Care Center has long been known for its exceptional resident care, highly qualified staff and safe, comfortable environment. Holiday Care Center has added additional vibrant original artwork to further enhance the atmosphere and the quality of life for its residents.

Two large-scale murals, supervised by a renowned local artist (who prefers to remain anonymous) are aesthetically pleasing additions to the already attractive décor at Holiday Care Center. On the doors of the Memory Care Unit, an inviting garden scene helps to create a relaxing mood while skillfully deferring the residents from the exit doors. The murals help stimulate residents’ minds and memory skills, as they discover and remember details of the art, such as a girl on a tree swing that’s incorporated into another scene.
