Carol was nominated for ‘consistently encouraging the home’s residents to participate in activities to enrich their daily lives’, and Lorraine for ‘always making time to talk to the residents and for always being caring and funny’.

Four Seasons Health Care regional manager Tracie White said: “Our employees are our most valuable resource and the reason we are able to deliver the best possible care to meet residents’ needs.

“It is a delight to reward Carol and Lorraine this way and show appreciation for their exceptional hard work and dedication that helps to set Four Seasons Health Care apart.”
