What a great start to the conference!
For the past four years, Welcome Home Management has had a presence at the ALFA conference. Each year, we’ve come away from this conference with more and more great ideas. There is such a sense of community here, it’s pretty neat. Today we reconnected with so many friends, both from Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin, but also from all of our friends who we do business with as well. Illustratus, RediLearning, Senior Living University, and Aging Services of Minnesota, to name a few. We also met several people at the expo that introduced us to some fascinating products that we will be able to integrate in to our communities.
“Our family is committed to your family”
What was the most heart felt part of the conference was easily the Hero Awards. The Hero Awards recognize those who show compassion and show excellence in assisted living communities. After watching the videos of each of the award winners, I am was reminded of our own Hero’s in our communities who take such good care of the residents who call our communities home. In one of the videos, there was a saying in the background that aligns to Welcome Home. The qoute was “Our family is committed to your family”. All across Welcome Home, our team members are one big family and each of them are committed to their communities and their residents. As I’ve been out talking to our team members, each one of them tells me that the greatest part of their day is “taking care of the residents…they are just like family.” Each resident becomes a part of a large family when they move in. From our care providers, to the management staff at the community, all of you do a great job. You are all Hero’s to us! Thank you for all that you do every day!
