When a new resident moves in, it can be a difficult transition for the resident, and with that difficulty can come some challenging behavior.
Sometimes, when others feel anxiety about something they have to do, it helps to create an atmosphere that brings down the stress and feels fun and relaxed. That was Colondra's creative solution to a resident's anxiety.
Caregiving is a difficult job, and those with caregiving in their veins tend to go the extra mile not only at work, but at home, too. And when life gets difficult, caregivers need someone to care for them, too. That's where Saleemah comes in.
We recently posted a very popular blog on the importance of meeting the emotional needs of the elderly, and this week's hero is a living demonstration of the tips in the article. (If you haven't read the blog, you should!)

As a manager, it's a proud moment to hear good feedback about someone on your team . . . and Char at Golden Oaks Home in New Berlin has had a lot of those moments lately because of someone on her team!
Ashley is a caregiver at our Willowgreen Home in Racine. She knows that we value our residents' preferences; so when Lydia, our manager at Willowgreen Home, got feedback from our residents at our Resident Council meeting that the residents wanted [...]
One of the great things about our caregivers is that they are always on the lookout for how they can make residents' lives better.

Our hero this week is Nancy Daniels, our nurse at Golden Oaks Home. She displays our value of "love others" by making every day a day for giving. She and her husband, Bruce, do woodworking which they sell. They use the money to [...]
Thank you so much for providing a comfortable and caring home for our mother. We have been very fortunate to have you and your team taking care of our mother and doing the chores she needed done 24 hours each day. Mom always said, "They are so good to me here." Your love for our mother is overwhelming in many ways!

I wanted to thank you for the tours today! We are excited to be able to network with you. We commented to our leadership staff how much we enjoyed your facilities and how much we were able to see the genuine care you have for the residents you work. Your facilities are definitely taking pride in making resident feel that they have found their forever homes. We were also impressed on the dedication your company has to your staff.

We went to Willowgreen Home on Thanksgiving and had dinner with my sister. I just wanted you to know what a great job everyone did from cooking, serving, and staff treating us so politely. Thanks for running such a fine facility!

We would like to thank management, staff and residents for the wonderful care and love our mom received while at Liberty House and Adelaide Place. Keep up the high quality of loving care for one another.

Thank you for letting me be a part of a team that works hard, has fun, and truly loves others. Loving others is the real work we do at Frontida. That begins at the top and works its way down to every employee. You lead by example!

I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with Golden Oaks Home. I'm extremely impressed with (Manager) Char. I work with people in other settings and she is by far the most caring and tuned into her residents that I have seen. If I could I would have my whole caseload at Golden Oaks Home. We were truly blessed to find this home.
Mary, Social Worker
Azalea Place is a lovely home. I can see why people in the community speak so highly of Frontida Assisted Living!

Thank you for taking such good care of my Mom and being so kind to our entire family. Frontida was truly the best place she could have been for her last days.

Your thoughtful wishes and caring smiles are all I need to know that you are the right Assisted Living for my Dad. I am so happy my Dad, my family, and I got to know each and every one of you. I would choose you all over again. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Char, I wanted to thank you and your team at Magnolia House for all of your hard work with my client. I know she posed a lot of challenges and I appreciate the compassion with which you addressed her concerns each day. All of you are very appreciated!
Laura, Case Manager
Char and her team at Magnolia House are a huge asset to residents with mental health needs in this community. They continue to amaze me with their compassion and willingness to work with a very difficult resident. Frontida is my first call for any clients with mental health needs.
