THROUGH RAIN, SLEET, OR SNOW...YOU DELIVER CARE 



The Dedicated Service Award celebrates longevity in the senior care profession! This award recognizes any employee whose service over the course of his/her career—a minimum of 20 years— has positively enhanced the quality of life for individuals in a care setting. The employee’s efforts demonstrate a commitment to their organization and the care-providing profession. 
COMPASSION +  (365 x  Years) = A CAREER IN CARING



The Employee of the Year Award recognizes an employee from any discipline and all service lines for his/her contributions that have improved the quality of life for residents/clients/tenants and/or enhanced the working environment for coworkers. 
YOU’RE SIMPLY THE BEST, BETTER THAN ALL THE REST



The Innovative Program of the Year Award recognizes an individual or team that has tried something different in their delivery or provision of a program or service. It recognizes out-of-the-ordinary efforts to enhance the lives of residents/tenants/clients, staff, or volunteers at a member organization. HINT: Think PIPP (performance improvement projects). 
YOU CRACKED THE CODE...CONGRATULATIONS! NOW TELL US HOW YOU DID IT!




The Nurse of the Year Award  honors an individual who displays extraordinary nursing skills in caring for individuals residing in a care facility/senior care.
YOU DESERVE 365 DAYS OF PTO, BUT HERE’S AN AWARD INSTEAD!



The Rising Star Award recognizes the contributions of an employee from any discipline, who is new to his/her profession (within the last 3 years) and has made an impact in his/her years of service.
HOLY COW! WE LIKE WHERE YOU’RE GOING 



Volunteers are precious. They freely give of their time and talents, with no expectation of recognition. The Volunteer of the Year Award recognizes a youth, adult, or group of volunteers who have made contributions to the quality of life for residents/tenants/clients or family members, or to the working environment for staff. 
FREELY GIVING THEIR TIME & TALENTS
