FTJ CNAs Recognized by Health Care Providers Council of Pierce County
Health Care Providers Council of Pierce Council recently hosted its 10th Annual All-Star Caregiver Awards. Nominations for this award are submitted by family members and residents of skilled nursing, memory care and assisted living communities throughout Pierce County, and this year approximately 100 caregivers were nominated with 10 winners. Typically there is a large dinner hosted for all the nominees and recipients, but this year because of COVID, the dinner was cancelled.
However, we couldn’t be more thrilled and excited to announce that Franke Tobey Jones’ Allisha Navarro was recognized and awarded CNA Of The Year! FTJ CNA Cristy Santos was also one of the distinguished nominees. Allisha and Cristy have worked at Franke Tobey Jones for eight years and 39 years respectively.
“Residents ask for Allisha by name,” says FTJ Kristina Atkins, Resident Care Supervisor. “She is caring and kind and takes her time with each resident she is caring for. It is true what they say, ‘People may not always remember what you say or what you did, but they will ALWAYS remember how you make them feel.'”
“Allisha lights up each day with her delightful personality and hard work,” comments a resident. “When she works, she never complains even when she has to do a double shift!”
“We have an amazing team of caregivers,” says Bob Beckham, FTJ Chief Operating Officer. “It is so wonderful that both Allisha and Cristy have been recognized as Outstanding Caregivers. They both embody a mentality of sincere service to our residents and are both very deserving!”
We couldn’t be more proud of Allisha and Cristy. They are shining examples of our FTJ Promise
“To Make Every Day Meaningful For Our Residents, Team Members and Myself.”
