Cedar Trails Employee Appreciation

March 2022 – Assistant Executive Director Michelle Luistro

I love that my team thinks with their hearts and are strong advocates when caring for our residents. They are innovative individuals with a true passion for senior living. The team always pulls through to make sure our residents are taken care of. I have seen Wellness jump in to help Culinary and vice versa. It’s amazing to watch the team come together to help other departments when needed.

The team worked together nicely when we hosted the 25 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar. All employees jumped in with daily activities to ensure we hit our goal. Both residents and employees enjoyed the holiday spirit!

For Employee Appreciation Day we plan to throw a party and possibly have a food truck. There will be great food, raffle drawing and prizes! I believe in positive reinforcement and using it in everyday interactions with employees so they know how much we appreciate them. We also enjoy giving creative follow-ups. It only takes a little to brighten someone’s day.
