WHITING, NJ—When it comes to the Springpoint family, Elenor Laskowski, Arlene Black and Kristen Jackson truly know the meaning. These three women, all related to each other maternally, currently work together as certified nursing assistants (CNAs) and home health aides at the Crestwood Manor life plan community located in Whiting, NJ. This grandmother/mother/daughter trio was all born and raised in the Toms River/Bayville area, and have been contributing important health care services to the entire Crestwood Manor community for generations.
Laskowski is a spry 74 year old who has held a variety of jobs, eventually finding her calling in the health care sector. She previously worked at Redeemer Health in Philadelphia and Tallwoods Care Center in Bayville, before joining the Crestwood team as a CNA in the health care center.
Black, Laskowski’s daughter, started her health care journey back in 1982. She worked in Crestwood’s health care center from 2008–2011, and then returned in 2021 to work in the elderly services program (ESP) and personal care.
Jackson, Laskowski’s granddaughter and Black’s daughter, has also taken up the mantle and continued the family tradition. She’s worked in the health care sector since the age of 16—and, following in her grandmother’s footsteps, worked at Tallwoods Care Center before joining Crestwood Manor. She has been at Crestwood Manor for 13 years and works the day shift in the health care center. Although she took courses to become a registered nurse, she found that being a CNA provides a more personal relationship with patients.
Amazingly enough, this maternal trio is hugely influenced and inspired by the family’s 98 year old matriarch (Laskowski’s mother), who still lives at home. This amazing family of talented women has provided exemplary service and dedication to the Crestwood Manor community for three generations. The Crestwood Manor community is fortunate to have such a dedicated and passionate group of women to consider family of their own!
