Albertine jumped in to save the day (actually over two weeks) while I (Production Supervisor) was on medical leave. She learned tons of new management skills instantly while working selflessly to keep the chef and server staff supplied with everything they needed to get their job done. She is a great asset to our team. Covenant Village is very fortunate to have her.

I have been working with Robert now for over a year and he has ALWAYS been one of the guys I can rely on to assist with me getting a request done. If he doesn't know the answer he will find it.

Mini VayalilCertified Nursing Assistant, Windsor Park
Mini has been observing ambulating guests for their walking program. What makes this situation special is because our restorative aide is also present working with other guests. Instead of Mini waiting for the restorative aide to ambulate her patient, Mini takes it upon herself to perform the task! Great job Mini! You provide excellent customer service!!!
