Comments Off on November 2019 Employee of the Month!
Congratulations to our November
Employee of the month, Nora Bonsack.
Nora has been a Certified Nurse
Assistant at the Callaway Good Life Center since October of 2013. She has experience working as a C N A in two
different care centers and she takes care of people in their homes. Nora enjoys gardening, yardwork, and
sewing. She has demonstrated her sewing
skills for our facility by making bags to hold wheelchair foot pedals for the
residents. Nora has a brother in
Lexington and a sister in Eddyville.
Nora was nominated by staff, and they
said that Nora has been working hard at getting dietary staff room tray lists
ASAP and delivering meal trays to rooms in a very quick manor. She also makes sure that meal intake is
always charted in the computer and that is much appreciated!
We asked Nora why she enjoys doing
what she does, and she said, “I get to know the residents and helping them when
they need something makes life easier for them.”
Nora always has a smile and her
jolly, upbeat way with the residents has endeared her to them.
This month is National Hospice Month! We celebrated this group from
ASERA care Hospice today with a potato bar! God Bless you all for your
loving and compassionate service to our residents, families and staff!
We love you all as our own!! Thank you for always being there for us!!
Yesterday the Callaway Good Life Center hosted about 90 youth from our
area communities for a CAPABLE tour! Thank to these young adults and
their sponsors for attending! We hope you learned a little about a
Skilled Nursing Facility and just some of the career paths that are
available! Thanks also to our staff and therapists for joining us in
this informational gathering!

and is a member of the Callaway Fire and Rescue department and the Sons of the
Pat had multiple nominations for Employee of
the Month. His co-workers had this to
say about him, “A shout out to Patrick who has stepped up several times lately
to drive Residents to appointments. You
are always very professional and kind and considerate and go above and beyond
your job “duties” to help out in this way.
Thank You very much!” “Pat has been “sprucing” up our facility. He has done touch up painting, cleaning the
carpets and so many things. Thank you
Pat for caring so much!” And finally, “Pat is always willing to do whatever is
asked of him. He sees tasks needing
completed and tackles them without being asked.
He recently waxed a room floor instead of leaving it for Tracy to
do. Thanks Pat!”
We asked Pat why he enjoys his job and he
replied, “I like the people I work with and also the residents. I also like the new challenges.”
Pat is definitely a ‘Get it Done’ kind of
man and we appreciate you! Keep up the
