Each year, we invite our Executive Directors, Resident Care Directors, and Sales and Marketing Directors to Charlottesville for a conference designed around sharpening our skills, improving our resident experience, and recognizing those team members who have gone above and beyond to improve the lives of seniors and their families.
Improving the lives of seniors can be done in a myriad of ways. From evaluating a building to decide what types of improvements would make life more comfortable for our residents to guiding our associates in care and medical oversight, and of course, for the individual caregiver who takes each moment to ensure our residents feel loved, we were proud to present awards to 12 individuals and 2 teams this year. These individuals were nominated by their supervisors and peers and embody the Core Values which guide each of us daily.
