Congratulations To Two Outstanding FTJ Care Givers

The Allstar Caregiver Award ceremony, sponsored by Health Care Providers Council of Pierce County, and hosted at the Weatherly Inn, was held in September.  There were nearly 100 nominations from Retirement Communities, Adult Family Homes and Care agencies.  Franke Tobey Jones is proud to announce that the winner was from Franke Tobey Jones!  Congratulations to George Ngugi who has worked at FTJ for only a few months, but has made quite a positive impression on many people. 

The nomination read “George is an all-star care giver for my father who resides in FTJ skilled nursing.  My dad has only lived there six weeks.  As a new resident, George was the first care giver my father met.  He was welcoming, helpful, friendly and made my dad feel welcomed from the moment he moved in.  George is a patient and steady support, engaging and encouraging. He provides personal care while honoring my father’s dignity in very undignified situations.  Every time I visit, George welcomes me and my family.  He genuinely cares for not just my dad, but for us a well.  He does not race through his care, he takes time to converse with my father and my father is NEVER made to feel he is a burden.  George, from the first hour of my father’s arrival, demonstrated great respect, attention and honor to my father.  I will be forever grateful for all George has done for my father.”

Elvira Peterson, a CAN at Franke Tobey Jones in our Lillian Pratt assisted living building, was also nominated and recognized for her outstanding care giving as well.

Congratulation to both George and Elvira who consistently live our FTJ Promise, “To make every day meaningful for my residents, my team members and myself.”  We are proud to have you on our FTJ Clinical team!
