Congratulations to Octavia Jackson | IMG October Customer Service Superstar

Octavia Jackson goes way above and beyond her normal CNA duties.  Debbie Martin, our DON, nominated Octavia as our October Superstar. 

Dorothy, one of our residents, had two members of her church coming to get her for services on 10/14/2017.  Dorothy is the oldest member of her church.  Octavia went shopping and purchased Dorothy a dress, perfume, and shoes.  Octavia did that with her own money.  She wanted to make sure Dorothy looked nice for the church service.  She also wanted to make sure Dorothy felt as special as everyone thought she was.  Octavia didn't stop there. 

Congratulations to Chad Cutler | IMG September Customer Service Superstar

Congratulations to Chad Cutler, maintenance assistance, at Keosauqua Health Care Center … you are the IMG September Customer Service Superstar!

Superstars do everything they can to help their team and residents.  When we think of someone who goes the extra mile, we think of Chad Cutler. Chad is our maintenance assistant here at Keosauqua Health Care Center, but he is so much more than that.  Every morning when Chad arrives to work he walks throughout the entire building and stops by our dining room to greet all our residents and wish them a good day.

Congratulations to Darlos Guppy | IMG August Customer Service Superstar

Congratulations to Darlos Guppy, ADON at Eagle Point Health Care Center!  You were chosen as IMG’s August Customer Service Superstar!
We are thankful for Darlos Guppy and her ever present enthusiasm and dedication that she exhibits daily.  When she found out that she was the “Superstar” this month and why, she stated, “I do get upset about a situation from time to time, but it’s behind closed doors”.  She only shows the Residents and staff a positive attitude, always, which really helps boost the morale of the facility.
Darlos has been a loyal nurse, with over 30 years of service, and seen the facility through various administration changes and ownership.  But one thing remains constant. “She Cares”. 
When a core member of the team takes vacation, or is out on sick leave; Darlos helps out.  Taking admission calls for a week along with continuing to do her own duties, completing nursing reports, taking an extra shift…anything that she is asked.  That is an amazing trait!  When we need to know what happened a few years ago with a Resident or family - you are correct - we ask Darlos! This has been a huge help to guide Residents and family in the right direction for care.
Most recently we had a marriage vow renewal for our residents and staff for the month of June.  This was an opportunity for our Residents to attend a wedding in the summer months and be included in an event that brings joy.  Darlos and her Husband, Marty, of more than 25 years said, “I do”, again along with some of our other staff and married couples that call Eagle Point HOME.
Darlos lives the mission of Residents First and Employees Always.  And she is the glue that binds our facility together!
Thank you Darlos for your years of service and positive attitude … you make a difference!
