This week at Epworth Villa, we have been celebrating Housekeeping Week. We are celebrating those who keep our homes and common areas sparkling clean. With a property this big, one can only imagine the enormity of that task. But our team – under the leadership of Gerard Watson do a fantastic job. Celebrating them only one week of the year doesn’t seem to do them justice. Our Housekeeping team is comprised of our Housekeepers, Laundry Professionals and Floor Care Specialists.
In celebrating this week, the team enjoyed cookies, donuts and all sorts of sugary confections. Deborah, Laundry Professional brought everyone a carrot cake. Twelve year veteran and Mentor, Saritha brought each person a certificate of appreciation and shared why she loved each of them. The team also played positivity games and awarded each other for great attitudes.
The Clean Team also celebrated the end of an era for one of Epworth Villa’s longest serving employees. Valencia has been with Epworth Villa for 24 years. Just this week, she made a Resident’s bed and the Resident told her she made it just the way she would have done it. We are so grateful for Valencia and the small things she has done over the years to bring joy to our Residents. We wish her much happiness and rest in her retirement.
It takes a large well-functioning team to keep a property this large looking as spectacular as it does. We couldn’t do it without these very special people who go above and beyond every single day by focusing on the details and sharing love with those around them. Congratulations Team on a job well done!
