It has been a long standing tradition to honor the employee of the year from each Generations Healthcare Network/SIR Management client facilities during the holiday season. Three of the thirteen specially chosen employees were finalists in the Burton Behr Employee of the Year award ceremony, with Julie as the 2nd runner up! Congratulations Julie.
It’s not every day that you can say you have met an angel on earth, but I can. In my time as being the administrator I have never met someone as compassionate and loving as my nominee. Her perseverance is amazing and her conduct has continued and unwavering professionalism, dedication and compassion in our facility. Moreover, she is a source of inspiration for other employees and to our residents in the facility. She is always very responsive when our facility or residents are in need of something. She clearly derives enjoyment from her duties and her enthusiasm has contributed to the fun working atmosphere in our facility. She is always smiling and has something new to share with all of us and makes each and every day a blessing to every resident she comes across. I can honestly say in my years of LTC I have never met someone with such passion and dedication to life.
Not only does she take care of residents who are extremely sick but she is a foster parent for children in foreign countries who need surgeries. She takes care of them in her personal home with all of their ailments and still comes to work every day caring for the residents in our facility. Her sleepless nights with her foster baby the age of 3 who just had a surgery that will have forever changed his life; she still comes to work with a smile on her face. Not only does she foster children but she also adopts residents without families, meeting their needs outside of the healthcare setting such as finding them winter coats, buying them Christmas presents, bringing in special meals, and sharing her foster stories with residents to bring a smile to their face.
