  9. 9. WESTMINSTER PALMS 2018 Employee of the Year Recently, we received a call that a resident who was in the hospital would be passing soon. Belinda tried to arrange transportation to get the resident’s spouse from our community to the hospital, and when she was unable to find someone to accompany him, Belinda went with him. She stayed with the couple for hours, and provided aid and ensured their needs were met. With her there, the residents were in safe hands. Belinda says she tries to build a bond with every person she meets. That makes all of us at Westminster Palms especially fortunate, because she is one of us. Congratulations!

In 2018, he received three Legendary Service Awards!

Today, she is a cook, rotating through a variety of positions, and she is known as the “Biscuit Queen.” Recently, one of the residents took the time to personally call the Dining Services Director and generously praise Darlene for the wonderful lunch she cooked.

  17. 17. WESTMINSTER OAKS 2018 Employee of the Year Mary starts each day by recognizing her fellow team members and the residents. She always has a smile on her face. Plus, there’s a hug or a peck on the cheek for everyone, and something positive to say. Mary also always looks for opportunities to celebrate: She knows what the residents enjoy, and will bring in movies and popcorn or treats from home for a movie night, and when an employee needs a pick-me-up, she’ll organize a birthday party or potluck. We’re all so thankful to have someone who lives out the Seven Habits like Mary in our community, every day. Mary Woody Registered Nurse Date of Hire: October 10, 2013
