January 2018 IMG Customer Service Superstar | Sydney Brooks - Newton Care Center

Congratulations to Sydney Brooks, CNA at Newton Care Center in Illinois!  Your empathy and compassion for a Resident and their family during a difficult time is appreciated and we are blessed to have you on the IMG team!

In our facility, we pride ourselves on being a family.  Our facility family includes employees, residents and their family members.  Recently, one of our residents and his family went through a very difficult time.  A long-term resident’s spouse, who still lived in the community, passed away suddenly.  Within a week of the passing, this resident himself landed in the hospital with a poor outlook for recovery.  While he was in the hospital, his son, lost his house in a fire.  The son has always been very involved, not just with his dad’s care but the care of other Residents and our staff.  Our staff reached out to this resident’s family with prayers, love and support, but, maybe none more than one of our young CNA’s - Sydney Brooks.

December 2017 IMG Customer Service Superstar | Dana Oney - Silver Memories

Congratulations to Dana Oney, CNA from Silver Memories!  You are the December IMG Customer Service Superstar.

Dana has been a CNA at Silver Memories since August of 2017. It did not take us long to see how truly valuable Dana is as well as how she provides excellent customer service. You can tell Dana does this job solely from her heart. She spends one on one time with each of our residents, taking the time to converse with them during resident care about their day and life history.  She always goes the extra mile when getting them dressed for dinner to fix their hair and makeup.

Congratulations to Stephanie Etchison from Paris Health Care!  You are the IMG November Customer Service Superstar!

Stephani Etchison has been with Paris Healthcare Center for 5 years and has been a dedicated employee who always puts residents first. Stephani goes above and beyond for all our residents.
