Nominee: Raymond Richardson
Raymond took the time to sit and chat with a resident who had been extremely confused. I saw Raymond sitting with a resident just listening to her stories, therefore making her feel important. She had been very confused, and felling very low, but after spending time with Ray, she shared how nice it was to sit and converse with someone who cared. She was on “Cloud 9” after sipping a cup of tea with Ray and reliving some of her early child hood stories. It was nice to see her so uplifted after spending time with Ray. Ray took the time, even though he had work to do, because it meant a lot to him to see her more relaxed and co-operative.
