You Got Caught Caring – July 2014

Posted on:


The following staff was recognized by residents, family members, visitors and other staff. Thank you for taking the time to appreciate our staff!!
* Description of the Good Deed: Leadership.
With all the noticed changes and pitfalls of our everyday reality as we work countless hours and days, we have all come to understand and respect the true heart of a “LEADER”.

I found a quote that best defines Zoie Nikov:
“Leaders aren’t born they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal”. By Vince Lombardi.

As leaders we have the courage and self-discipline to live by our inner truth. We know our own values and live by them impeccably…and do so openly so that others will emulate us as we try to bestow others with heart. I think we can all agree that you have been this leader/mentor to some if not all. (submitted by Marjorie Burris)

* While I was passing medications out of the goodness of his heart Ibrahim Kargbo helped me to pass the morning meds on Shenandoah after he had already done his turn on Allegheny. What a great employee and team player! (submitted by Peggy Hojnacki, Unit Mgr)

* Hanaa Farouk takes excellent car of my mother. She is gentle and conscientious, treats my mother with kindness and compassion. She entered my mother’s trust which is not an easy thing to accomplish. She enjoys Hanaa’s company and looks forward to seeing her. Even though they don’t speak the same language they communicate with humor… It gives me and my family great comfort to know that my mother will be properly taken care of whenever Hanaa is on duty.

* My wife lives happily at the Center. We would like to especially thank Simret Negatu for being so nice, caring and attentive. We really appreciate her professionalism.
