  • Christie Po

    Field Support Engineer, Covenant Living of Florida

    Christie "saved the day" for me when our RL laptop was not cooperating. I was not able to sign in to a required live philanthropy online course. She also instructed me on best practice when needing to use our laptop. She also helped me when I had an issue later that day for a Skype call. Christie is very courteous and responsive, not only to residents, but also to staff. She is one of the most patient people I have ever met!

  • Ana Chavez, CNA

    Certified Nursing Assistant, Covenant Living at Windsor Park

    On Saturday October 26th, Ana acted promptly when she observed a resident choking in his bed, Ana immediately notified the nurse, sat the resident upright, removed the object obstructing the resident's airway, and remained help arrived. Had Ana not made her morning rounds as soon as she started her workday and responded as fast and efficiently as she did, this resident may not have survived. Ana's responsiveness saved this particular resident's life, which is inspirational and embodies why we do what we do. Ana did everything she needed to do quickly solve the problem at hand. Thank you Ana!

  • Diane Moore

    Director of Assisted Living, Covenant Living of Bixby

    Yesterday, Dianne Moore deliberately inspired me to serve! A resident had lost her diamond ring. Dianne called me to ask about it and make suggestions. All four members of my department had already been to the apartment to search, including remaking the bed and inspecting drains and trash cans. I also have the driver search the floor of the bus inch by inch. A little later, Dianne asked about the timing of the next trash pick up, which turned out to be the next morning. She was all set to go change her clothes and dive into that dumpster, but while she was still thinking about it, I begin to search. One by one I reached in and fished out the black trashcan liners from that resident’s nearby trash room. None of the first four had the white plastic bag with the red pull-tie from her apartment. When I got to the fifth bag, I noticed a brown paper bag from the supermarket that our bus had visited. There was a post-it note on the bag with the resident’s name on it. Underneath several discarded food items that had been steeping for a day was the golden ring! While I had absolutely no plans to search a big dumpster for that little ring, Dianne, it turns out, had been preparing for this day for years! Because this trusted leader was firm about searching, I trusted her judgment about the need for it to be done. I had no hope of finding it, but got it done anyway. I am convinced that she would have searched the dumpster again if I had not found it!

  • Audrey Gallagher

    Administrative Assistant, Covenant Living Central Office

    As a remote employee, I often have questions. Since last November when I joined the Covenant Team, Audrey has been there to help me out any time I ask. No matter the question or request, Audrey always says, "I can help you with that." Even if isn't something related to her role, she finds out and/or directs me to the right person. Any time I am at Central Office, Audrey's greeting when I walk through the door has always been a treat, too. Warm & welcoming...a great way to start your day. Thank you, Audrey!

  • Wilma Wilkes

    Receptionist, Covenant Living of Florida

    I started at Covenant Living of Florida on 7/22/19. My second week on the job I was on the phone helping a resident and another resident came up to my desk and started asking me questions. Wilma was walking by my desk and stepped in and took care of the resident's need. I want to recognize Wilma for taking the initiative and serving the resident and helping her new co-worker. Thanks Wilma!
