Woodstone Senior Living of Rice Lake, WI was recently awarded the Sunshine Award from WEAU TV 13 in Eau Claire, WI on Wednesday January 28th, 2015.
The Sunshine Awards began in 1985 as a way for WEAU viewers to publicly thank others for acts of kindness and good deeds. Our devoted staff works tireless hours without even looking for a thank you.
They all have hearts of gold that are willing to help in a moment’s notice. The staff looks at all of the residents as their parent or grandparent.
The management team of Woodstone expresses our sincere gratitude and thanks to the staff for all of their hard work and dedication to their Woodstone Family, without each and every one of you the residents would be lost and wouldn’t have someone to help them meet their daily needs!
We asked a few of our staff to why they love working here?
Lauren, a care provider in in our memory care community said “The residents make sure to keep my life full of positive energy”.
