Marta GrucaFM Office Assistant, Covenant Living of Northbrook
I work in the office next to Marta, and I am impressed, daily, by the way that she serves our residents and staff. She is always courteous, even when residents are confused or upset. She is incredibly patient with them when trying to get to the root of a problem. Marta consistently follows up on requests, and does everything possible to resolve situations quickly and efficiently. I know that she responds in the same way to family members who seek her help, and that quality of service only enhances Covenant Living's image. She is a shining example of putting our residents first.

Kevin ShuffRecruiter, Covenant Living Central Office
I would like to recognize Kevin for courtesy, responsiveness and image. Kevin went out of his way to help me with a project last week. We took a trip out to the Holmstad to pass out flyers around town to help with filling our open positions. Kevin's continued dedication to filling our positions and working creatively to do so really makes him Inspired to Serve. Thank you Kevin for all you do for our communities and recruitment!

Nick HeathSecurity Guard, Covenant Living at the Holmstad
A residential living resident had a bit of an issue overnight and did not have anyone near by that she could call to come help her. Nick stepped in to ensure her safety by staying in her duplex while she got herself cleaned up, and did not leave her alone until she got herself safely back in bed. He also responded to her pendant each time she called overnight and was a great deal of comfort to her, even helping change over her laundry in the machines. Hearing from the resident today, she stated how kind, respectful, and comforted she was by knowing Nick was just a press of her pendant away.

Rodrigo MolinaMaintenance Mechanic, Covenant Living of Golden Valley
When Creekside Kitchenette had a large water emergency, Rodrigo sprung into action orchestrated the repair and cleaning efforts so that the Foodservice was only interrupted for a matter of minutes rather than it turning into a huge issue. What a relief! Thanks for your quick thinking and expertise in repair. Rodrigo demonstrated all of Covenants core standards Safety, Courtesy, Responsiveness & Image in his quick thinking and actions.

Joan filled in many hours last week at the Front Desk as we have been short staffed for a while. She was incredibly responsive to residents' and staff's requests to fix problems while her manager, Kathy Graf, was on vacation. There were times when she was extremely busy, answering questions from residents and visitors. We appreciate your effort and hard work during a tough time.
