Nominations Open For Long Term Caregiver Award

22 Jan 2020 News

January 1st, 2020 marks the beginning of the submission period for the North Dakota Long Term Care Association Caregiver Award.  This annual award recognizes employees across the state of North Dakota who go above and beyond their everyday duties to substantially enhance the quality of life for residents of long term care facilities.  The NDLTCA takes this time each year to honor and recognize those special employees who make a difference in the lives of North Dakota’s aging population.  Mountrail Bethel Home, a CMS 5 star rated nursing home, is proud to employ Director of Rosen Place Assisted Living Facility, Lauren Hysjulien, a previous winner of the award.  When asked about the award, Lauren stated, “It was a nice way to feel appreciated for all the hard work I had put in during the previous year”. “You don’t always know that the work you’re doing makes a difference, but receiving this award helped show me that even the little things can make someone’s day a little better”.   

Applications to nominate an employee can be picked up from the Director of Social Services, Kelly Gustavson, or can be found at the link here.  All employees working in North Dakota long term care facilities are eligible for this award, but MUST be nominated by a resident or family member to be considered.  This award will be judged based on how the nominated caregiver substantially enhances the quality of life of residents.  Mountrail Bethel Home’s motto is “nobody takes care of your like your own”.  Employees pride themselves on treating residents with the respect and dignity they would give their own family members, and this results in the top quality care we strive to provide.  Residents and family members are welcome to nominate more than one staff if applicable.  Winners of the award will be presented with a cash prize during the annual NDLTCA Spring Convention in Bismarck.  All nominees will receive a Certificate of Outstanding Achievement from the North Dakota Long Term Care Association, and will be listed in the Caregiver Booklet.   All entries must be postmarked by Friday, February 7th to:

North Dakota Long Term Care Association

1900 N 11th St

Bismarck, ND 58501
