Nominee: Kathleeen Graham
One of our residents was disappointed to see our Connections Director leave for another opportunity in her career. The resident was obviously upset about this persons decision to leave, and was withdrawn and depressed. Kathleen, seeing this change in the resident, made a valiant effort to become closer to her, and share Kathleen’s plans for the Connections Department and how these changes would impact her, as a resident. Before I knew it, this resident was seeking Kathleen to inquire what the scheduled activity programming was, and I immediately observed her coming out of her room more, and participating in the programming. This was nice to see, and the resident seemed so much happier.
