Today we take a moment and recognize the communities who have achieved high level of excellence in senior living.
We have several awards to get to, but before we go any further, we’d like to make a special mention to all of those team members out there who are the real hero’s in the community. Each day, you take special care of the resident’s who call our communities home. From all the guys on the maintenance team who keep the buildings running in top shape, to the Food Service department who create the wonderful food that we all get the honor of tasting; the Community Life Coordinators who really take our goal of “A Part of You” and make it a reality. We also thank the Care Providers who really do wonderful work. Taking the time to get to know each resident on an individual level and working with each resident based on their needs takes a special person.
Because of all the hard work that you do, the residents, families, your team members and all of us here at Welcome Home, thank you.
Each year, Welcome Home recognizes the excellence in practice throughout their communities. The Resident Choice Award recognizes the community which scored the highest customer satisfaction rating for 2010. Each year, the award goes down to the wire as each of the properties scored high marks.
