Sue Wilson, CNA
Aspen Wind Assisted Living Facility and Alzheimer's Units
"Ms. Sue Wilson and I have known each other for three years while she has been employed as a CNA at Edgewood/Aspen Wind Assisted Living Facility and Alzheimer’s Units. This has allowed me as a previous CNA and RN of 26 years and as a resident to observe her in situations on a daily basis. She meets with skill, dedication and flexibility my needs, the other residents, families and other professionals. Based on her generous energy, insight and caring attitude for each individual, she is an asset to the facility. Sue exceptionally assists and cares for residents who are at varied levels of mental and physical functioning and needs. She treats the residents not as patients, but special individuals with unique needs and care. She gives of herself to others with dedication and consistency. Sue has a delightful sense of humor that helps lighten the gravity for us. She seeks to encourage me and others in maintaining and strengthening our level of independence.
I trust this recommendation enumerates Sue’s skill, care, and character, demonstrating she would be an excellent choice for your Community Caregiver Award!" Charla J. Brown, BSRN (ret.)
