LIMEPORT, Pa., (October 2020) – New Vitae Wellness and Recovery is pleased to announce that employee Adele Lemak is celebrating her 25th year of service with the behavioral health and residential service provider.
Lemak has held a number of positions at New Vitae, including director of social services for Quakertown House and Mount Trexler Manor, New Vitae’s two licensed personal care homes in its continuum of residential care.
“Adele has played a critical role in both our residential and clinical supports for many years,” said New Vitae President and CEO, Judith Yanacek. “We are so happy to be celebrating such a phenomenal accomplishment in her career. Adele consistently goes above and beyond to support positive outcomes for our clients and staff. We are honored to participate in the celebration of her 25th year of service at New Vitae.”
Originally hired as a care coordinator at Quakertown House, Lemak quickly developed supportive relationships with residents while learning more about residential regulations, insurance benefits, and effective documentation. Most recently, she has served as the office manager at the organization’s Recovery Center, where she has been learning additional service regulations, working closely with doctors and therapists, and developing additional relationships with community-based clients and new staff.
“I was lucky to have found New Vitae,” said Lemak. “It has seen me through many stages of my life. New Vitae has been a home to me, with many days where the time did not even feel like work.”
