Caregiver Award Monthly Winners

 

APRIL 2018 WINNER

Jill Ruiz

Chaplain, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center

"Jill is so thoughtful and helpful when she was needed. I also felt like she never forced her beliefs on us, but rather she allowed us to express our own beliefs. She was there for my family through the death of my mother.  We were so impressed with her kindness when we needed it most."

FEBRUARY 2018 WINNER

Elizabeth Beliaj

Activities Director, Edgewood Sierra Hills

"Elizabeth has been the Activities Director at Sierra Hills for 11 years! She is loved dearly by each and every one of our residents and is highly respected by the staff. The time and effort she puts into making the activities fun, enriching, and meaningful is commendable. Elizabeth goes out of her way to make sure the community is not only highly decorated for each holiday, but also keeps it looking its best for our residents and their families. She ensures our community hosts holiday parties for the residents and their families and comes in on the day of the holiday to spend time with residents who will be spending the day alone. Elizabeth also serves as our Resident Safety Advocate and ensures each resident feels safe, heard, and protected. To ensure the happiness of a few of our more independent gentlemen she tracked down a pool table, picked it up, and helped set up the room all on her own time. She even brought in sports related prints from her own home to decorate the new rec room. The residents trust her and know she will take care of their complaints and needs. She tailors her activities program to the likes and needs of the current residents, secures wonderful volunteers, and has unique and interesting entertainment. She always has a positive attitude, a smile on her face, and gets the residents laughing. She calms them when they are upset, is a go-to problem solver, and is a liaison for family issues. Elizabeth does not get recognized enough for the integral part she plays in our community. She deserves this award and the recognition that comes with it. We appreciate her and want to show her how much we care!"

DECEMBER 2017 WINNER

Les Whiteface

Magic City Enterprises

"Les is a Direct Support Professional who works with individuals who have disabilities.  Due to Les' dedication to the people he supports, he has helped these individuals achieve huge feats. For instance, two gentlemen with profound disabilties that spend the majority of their time in wheelchairs are now able to self-propel in their wheelchairs several feet.  He also supports these individuals at the YMCA pool where they are able to stand and walk where they are not able to walk around without full support.  Les contines to encourage them to move in the water and self-propel.  He also ensures the health of these individuals by getting out of their chairs and onto mats for movement, enabling them to have a different sensory environment other than being in their wheelchairs.  These individuals are unable to speak but have shown sincere emotion with their smiles and happy noises while in the pool."

OCTOBER 2017 WINNER

Suzanne Dawson, Medical Receptionist

Stitches Acute Care Center

"Suzanne is the kindest person I have ever met.  She greets and lends support to the clients who enter Stitches.  She brings in home cooked meals for her co-workers when they have long weekend shifts together.  Too many to count, are the baby blankets she has hand-made for young mothers she knows from church, or women that work at the doctor's office.  She cares for her nearly deaf husband, taking to whatever appointment he requires.  She is loved and appreciated by all."
