ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The St. Ann’s Community assisted living nursing home care facility received a financial boost on Thursday.

The facility received $100,000 in additional funding towards recruiting and training Certified Nurse Assistants (CNAs). Officials say CNAs are an integral part of any assisted living or nursing home care center, helping patients with their day-to-day living.

Assemblymember Jen Lunsford (D-Fairport) presented St. Ann’s Community CEO Mike McRae with a check representing $100,000 in state funding.

"The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the cracks in our health care system, proving that it’s all the more crucial to invest in the future generation of nurses and caretakers," Lunsford said.
