April 21 marks seven weeks since LifeSpire’s first communication regarding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It is day 35 since the home office temporarily closed. It has been 39 days since visitor restrictions were implemented at each of our four communities.
For the past 38 days our dining services teams have prepared and delivered all meals to each resident in their community. Resident services team members hosted virtual events and helped family members connect with their loved ones via video call. Housekeeping and facilities teams upped their efforts to clean and sanitize every surface. Marketing team members hosted virtual tours and facilitated move-ins for new residents while adhering to social distancing guidelines. Nurses donned respirators, gloves, goggles, shields and gowns to care for our residents.
Every team member has stepped up to the plate during this incredibly difficult time. They put their own health and the safety of their families on the line to provide top-notch care for our communities.
The risk they are all taking is not lost on the LifeSpire management team which is why we are launching a COVID Care Recognition Program designed to thank those who are going above and beyond during this pandemic. Each day, LifeSpire will award a $250 bonus to team members or a $250 gift card to contractors who are nominated for their efforts. The bonus will be added to the team member’s next scheduled paycheck and gift cards will be distributed to the recipient. This recognition will be awarded every day until the pandemic restrictions are lifted.
Nominations will be accepted from fellow team members, managers or residents.
To nominate a LifeSpire team member:
- Send the name, community and title of the person you are nominating to Corporate Director of Communications Hillary Smith at email@example.com.
- Include a few sentences explaining what the nominee has done to deserve this recognition.
- Photos or videos are welcomed and may be used on social media to further recognize our team members.
