Niagara Falls resident Donna Morgan, activities director at Elderwood Residences at Wheatfield, was one of four staff members recognized as an Elderwood 2018 Service Excellence Award winner.
Considered Elderwood’s highest honor, the award is presented annually to staff who work toward providing quality health care and demonstrate honesty, integrity, reliability, teamwork and respect for co-workers, residents and families. To be considered for the award, staff must be full-time employees who have been with Elderwood five years or longer.
“Donna takes enormous pride in doing her job well and works hard to meet the residents’ varied interests and activity levels,” said Property Manager Tammy Ooft. “She knows how to make residents feel treasured and is most definitely a ray of sunshine in their lives.”
The Service Excellence Award was presented at Elderwood’s annual staff recognition celebration honoring employees marking milestone anniversaries of five, 10 or more years with the organization. This year, Elderwood recognized 261 individuals for five to 35 years of service.
