Congratulations to Life Enrichment Manager, Patti Elisano of Sunrise of Raleigh, NC, for receiving the North Carolina Assisted Living Association’s 2016 Hero of the Year Award!
At Sunrise, our residents and their families depend on our team members to provide the very best in quality care, each and every day.
The NCALA Hero Awards recognize individuals who are ideal representatives of the senior living field and who demonstrate the highest levels of excellence, caring and dedication in the senior living business. According to NCALA, award winners are exemplary in protecting each resident’s right to privacy, work to foster independence and promoting the individuality of each resident.
Patti’s immense passion for serving seniors is evident in everything she does. She places strong value in helping to ensure success in the lives of residents and promoting a very high quality of life. She advocates for the rights of the senior population daily through her position and her service to the community.
Hear straight from a resident’s family member about the impact Patti has had on her loved one:
“Patti continually gives herself in large and small ways. She does not refrain from talking about her own family and their times together if she senses that it will help engage the residents in the conversation or activity. And although she works long hours at a very demanding job, her energy never seems to fail. She is just as enthusiastic at 7:30 a.m. as she is at the end of the day. Patti is creative. She is responsible for much of the residents’ time each day and she always seems to find interesting stories, games or crafts. Through them, she helps the residents remember their past, get to know and appreciate one another and stay connected to current events.”
Patti, you are a true testament to the Sunrise mission, and we thank you for all that you do each day!
