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.

Thanks Nora for all that you do!

Congratulations to our October Employee of the Month, Patrick Jorgenson

Patrick is our Maintenance Director and has been with CGLC since January of 2018.  He has an Applied Science Associate’s Degree with 20 plus years of construction experience.

Pat has been married to his lovely wife Melissa for almost 13 years and they have an adorable daughter Alley who is 10 years old.  He enjoys hunting and fishing and is a member of the Callaway Fire and Rescue department and the Sons of the American Legion.

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 great work!
