We are proud to announce the winners of the COVID Front Line Recognition Award, sponsored by MHA/Navigator and created to honor two front-line individuals or teams who have gone above and beyond in providing extraordinary care to our residents.

Nominated by Kristin Townsley, Executive Director
Park Place Senior Living
From the beginning of the pandemic, our staff has been exceptional in making sure our residents are social distancing. Our team goes above and beyond to make sure all the residents feel loved and cared for, and they take great pride in how the residents look and are cared for every day.
Even in light of ever-changing regulations or protocols, this team has handled themselves with grace and love, and never let frustration get the best of them in the midst of daily changes.
I know we have the right team in place to ensure our residents are taken care of and that their health and safety is the top priority. Everyone continues to go above and beyond daily for our most vulnerable population. And for that I will be forever grateful and proud. Thank you Park Place Memory Care Team!
Nominated by Angela Martinez, Executive Director
Traditions at Reagan Park
Kamari joined Reagan Park in June 2019 as a high school student. She has since graduated and recently started nursing school. She provides care to our residents who participate in our specialized Memory Care program, Varietas.
During the Covid pandemic, Kamari supported our community and residents by faithfully committing to her scheduled shifts, working overtime when needed, following all safety protocols and demonstrating a willingness to do whatever required for the greater good of the residents, team and community.
Kamari truly knows each resident personally and she is invested in using this knowledge to provide the best in care. Through this pandemic, she has been able to support the residents on a deeper, more individualized level. She has become family to our residents, showering them with love and affection in the absence of their own family members.
When co-workers were asked to describe Kamari, two words often came up: calm and willing. Calmness during the storm, and a willingness to do whatever it takes to get us through— valuable attributes, especially in this time.
We are so proud to have Kamari on our team. She is a blessing to our residents and to all who know her.
Congratulations, once again to our winners who will be recognized for their achievements as part of a virtual celebration. They will also be awarded a $200 gift card to a Laundry’s restaurant of choice, as well as an award certificate commemorating this distinction.
Our thanks to MHA/Navigator for recognizing the sacrifice and service of our essential front-line team members.
