Employee Crisis Fund
Supporting the Team in Times of Need

During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, the seniors of the world were in a vulnerable position. As communities transition out of the worst of the global pandemic, LifeSpire continues to provide high-quality care and support to its residents. Team members in LifeSpire communities are going above and beyond to make sure all residents are healthy and happy.

One resident said that she feels safer in the LifeSpire community than anywhere in the world. The feeling of security that many residents experience is present due to the care and concern displayed by each team member during this time.

I Want to Help the Team in Times of Crisis

As a reminder, each LifeSpire community maintains an Employee Crisis Fund to which team members may turn in times of need. It is a blessing for team members to have this resource if they do experience a crisis and need an extra hand, because of circumstances related to COVID-19 or other things going on in their lives. If you would like to show your appreciation for community team members, you can contribute to the Employee Crisis Fund. Each community maintains a separate fund for their team members, so you may choose a community, or you may give to where it’s needed most. 

Employee Education Fund
Investing in Our Team’s Future

LifeSpire of Virginia’s mantra — “Faith.  Wellness.  Community.” — represents an unwavering commitment to residents’ well-being and health; contentment and engagement; independence and safety. In order to fulfill that promise, the organization depends on the talent and dedication of its team members. And to keep them engaged and growing in their profession, LifeSpire offers scholarships and tuition reimbursement to help them further their education. 

LifeSpire’s Employee Education Fund (EEF) annually provides scholarships to team members — and even to their children and grandchildren. Ultimately the impact of these awards extends to LifeSpire residents because trained and educated team members deliver the ultimate in care, service and hospitality.

This is a 2020 scholarship recipient, Mujinga Kapanga. Mujinga was an Admissions Coordinator for Lakewood, but she wanted to be a nurse! She graduated from John Tyler Community College in 2020 and is now working as a RN in Lakewood Health Services, and we are delighted to have invested in her future with us as a Lakewood team member!
