Congratulations to our November Employee of
the Month, Natalie Trumbull!
Natalie is currently a brand new C N A for
our facility! She began her career at
the Good Life Center as a dietary aide.
After taking the C N A course and getting her certificate, she
transferred to nursing. Congratulations
on your success.
Natalie is the daughter of Dan and Jo
Trumbull and a junior at the Callaway High School. She enjoys playing volleyball, watching
Husker football and volleyball, and working out with her niece Rylee.
Natalie’s co-workers said this of her,
“Natalie worked very hard to get her C N A certificate. She was dependable in dietary and has brought
that dependability to nursing. She works
hard but I see her smiling when she comes in.
That tells me that she enjoys her work.
Congrats on getting your C N A and thank you for working here!”
We asked Natalie why she likes working at
CGLC and she said, “Helping people has always been something I’ve loved. If I can make at least one person smile, I
know I have done my job. Helping them is
my way of giving back and saying, ‘Thank-You!’.
I love my job at the Callaway Good Life Center!
was Hospice Month! We celebrated on Thursday November 28th, hosting a
Fiesta Luncheon with yummy Mexican food and Margaritas (non-alcoholic of

Hospice for your loving and compassionate care you give our residents

We feel so blessed to be here and it’s always good to celebrate with those who helped make it possible! We are grateful and will never forget your generosity!
Congratulations to our October Employee of
the Month, Shirla Streit.
Shirla is beginning her 25th year as a nurse
at the Good Life Center, congratulations!
She began her career as an RN Charge Nurse in this facility straight out
of nursing school in 1993. She is and
has been a very loyal and dependable employee, always works her shifts and
willing to help out whenever needed. She is a huge part of our knowledge base
and a talented professional nurse.
Shirla not only works full time as a nurse,
but is also Mom to 3 boys. Twins Colby and Alex are 16 years old and are 10th
graders at Arnold this fall, and 13 year old Brendan who is a 7th
grader this fall. She also lives with
partner Shane and 1 very solid, excitable boxer named Bella.
Shirla’s hobbies include reading, although
we are not sure when she finds the time, and crafting.
Shirla’s co-workers nominated her and said,
“Shirla is a true team player. She worked 6 am to Midnight on September 14th,
2018 due to staffing issues. She has
hardly ever called in and will trade shifts if someone needs to work a
different day, and if it fits her schedule.
She always smiles and treats the residents as they are her #1 priority,
even when she is having her own problems.
Shirla always has a smile and the residents
love her. She can make a dreary day
become sunny and bright with her laughter. We are proud to have her on our
Callaway Chamber Fall Decorating Contest! What’s better than relaxing around a camp fire roasting marshmallows! These two handsome fellas are having a hay day!! Stop out to see them at night too…the camp fire is glowing!
