Gershon OrmeoMaintenance Mechanic, Covenant Village of Colorado
I have had the opportunity to step in and assist FM to help the department catch up due to heavy work load. I got to observe Gershon work, and was really impressed with his work ethic. He didn't just work hard, but his attention to detail showed a genuine caring attitude toward our residents and CVC. He is a true example of what a good employee looks like. Way to go!

Viridiana GuitierrezHousekeeper, The Holmstad
This morning I watched Viridiana Guitierrez encounter an assisted living resident who was a little confused but wanting to get to the banking services in the Town Center. She was very kind and patient as she helped him make his way to the concierge to find out about the banking services. When they got to the desk they were told the banking services would be here tomorrow. Viridiana Guitierrez didn't leave him there but helped him catch the circuit bus as it was leaving and make his way safely back to Assisted Living. Her kindness was inspiring!

We award Sam as MVP. Sam was part of our staff that stepped in and helped to make sure our resident's well being came first and helped out a team member. Our Life Enrichment assistant had to leave early to meet with the service repairman to repair her sump pump. Sam willing stepped in and covered not only the reception desk but the Life Enrichment assistant's remaining portion of her shift until he relief could arrive. She also purchased a meal for the relief assistant so she would have a meal during her shift. Thank you Sam for your dedication to CL and Windsor Park.
