Kara AndersonAdministrative Assistant, Mount Miguel Covenant Village
I was having a conversation in the lobby with a Resident's nephew and a representative from a hospice company. Another Resident was perseverating and yelling 'help' in the hallway. Kara immediately went to take care of the Resident. Her quick response and attention to the needs of our Resident demonstrated her commitment to our Service Standards and Behaviors. Kara is definitely Inspired to Serve. Thank you, Kara!

Richard Thuringer, Transportation Supervisor, deserves a gold medal for his outstanding and exemplary service to residents and staff during inclement weather in keeping everyone safe from the icy roads and picking them up with his personal vehicle when the campus shuttle bus was not able to navigate the snow and ice. Richard goes above and beyond in ensuring that the last staff get to work and back home safely even if it takes extra time to go to their homes.

Matthew HoefsNurse, RN, The Holmstad
This weekend, we had an admission from one of the residents on Campus. Her diagnosis was a Fall with left hip pain and a history of Dementia and Alzheimer. This evening, the resident was very anxious and one could see how she was mentally lost. Matt was her nurse tonight and what he did was UNBELIEVABLE! I have never seen anyone who was so depressed and right now she is sing-along with Billy Joel and other songs.Matt put his phone on the nurse's desk and had Pandora playing all the music. I wish you could see the resident's face, how she was smiling.
