Celebrating our amazing team


submitted by Jane Adams

Everyone is a key part of the puzzle! That was the theme of this year’s Staff Appreciation Day held in September. A staff luncheon was held, complete with games and a giant gratitude puzzle.

This year’s Commitment Award recipients are: (l-r): Laureen Laing, Resident Aide; Angela Gruich, Activity Assistant (recently retired!); Jennifer Hill, Activity Programs and Services Director; and Kerrie Charlebois, RAI MDS Coordinator

Congratulations to our Service Award recipients for their years of dedicated service in our home. Eleven staff were honoured for years of service milestones ranging from 5 to 35 years.  

In addition, four 2022 Commitment Award winners were recognized. The Commitment Awards shine a light on staff members who exemplify Dundas Manor’s values of respect and dignity, and inspiring happiness and joy every day.  Congratulations to Laureen Laing, Kerrie Charlebois, Jennifer Hill, and Angela Gruich.

This year’s service award recipients are: (l-r): Julie Bosse Personal Support Worker; Angela Gruich, Activity Assistant; Stacey Williams, Director of Support Services; Jessica Casselman, Registered Practical Nurse; Dara Ferguson Registered Practical Nurse and Infection Prevention and Control Lead; Lisa O’Neill, Dietary Aide; Connie Collins, Housekeeping/Laundry Aide; and Josephine Caddumlay, Personal Support Worker.
