Ian Murphy, Chef, & Daniel George, Lead Dining ServerCovenant Living of Bixby
A resident had asked me to let the Dining room know to hold back a lunch for her today. When I failed to notify them on time, and realized after lunch had concluded, Ian and Dan graciously went to the kitchen and made her a lunch to ensure that she had something to eat. I appreciated their genuine concern and prompt action, and amazing attitude! Thank you!

Renee is the ultimate team player. She covers for others (me!) on short notice and doesn't miss a beat when it sends her across the city during rush hour. She represents CCAH to prospects in an informed and friendly manner. Her responsiveness and attitude are an inspiration - a model to all.

Marta GrucaFM Office Assistant, Covenant Living of Northbrook
On five different occasions in the last three weeks, Marta has been recognized and noted by the residents as being extremely responsive, available, the "hub" of the department. In each case, the comments have been unsolicited but just inserted into the conversation as other items of need were discussed. Today, walking through the hallway, I came across Marta with a resident who was clearly lost and confused and Marta was working kindly and gently with the resident to help her return to her husband and apartment. Covenant is blessed to have Marta serving our residents each day!

Maria Luisa HortaHousekeeper, Covenant Living at Mount Miguel
One of the Residents had misplaced a ring that was given to her by her son, which had a lot of sentimental value. Maria had cleaned her unit earlier that day so she went back to the vacuum bag to see if by chance it was there. She emptied the bag with another Housekeepers help, to ensure they had a second set of eyes looking through the debris, and she found it. The Resident was so happy, that she broke down and thanked her profusely! Way to go Maria.

Thanks Brian, you saved the presentation!
