Congratulations to Linda Brown from Newton Health Care Center (IA). Linda hasn’t been with us long, however we already know she is a great asset to our facility. She is a great nurse and friend for the residents and staff. Linda always comes in with a positive attitude and a smile. She goes out of her way to help others regularly and doesn’t leave until her tasks are complete. Many residents have complimented Linda for her positive attitude, jokes, and laughter.
Congratulations to Rachel Johnson, the IMG October Customer Service Superstar!
We, at Warsaw Meadows Care Center, pride ourselves on our resident programming specifically in our dementia units. We have made this such a focus over the last year that we are regarded in the community as the dementia experts for our area. We train all of our staff on the causes of dementia, the progression of Alzheimer's, behavior management, and family/caregiver health. Part of that training is centered on programming. When we say programming we are not just talking about activities and following a calendar. We are talking about the interpersonal day to day engagement of our residents with all staff.
Congratulations to LPN, Molly Fitzgerald of Urbandale Health Care Center in Urbandale, Iowa. Molly is our IMG Customer Service Super Star, for the month of September.
