Hey everyone, we have put together a summary of what you told us this past year: we wanted to let you know that WE HEARD YOU.
Here is what we did about what you told us:
Thanks helping us improve! Remember we have online compliments and complaints forms that you can use anytime. We look forward to hearing from you.
Hey all, CARF has posted 10 tips to help unpaid caregivers beat burnout – check out the article!
Not all of us have had the chance to use a fire extinguisher in real life, but these devices are important safety equipment. Using them to put out small fires can save lives!
That being said, arranging training on how to use them properly can be challenging.
So, we thought we would revive a previous post from our team (employee) website that included a training video — click here to check out the video, and please share with others!
Is there specific training you think would be helpful to have? Let us know in the comments!
Hey everyone, here is your friendly reminder that today is the last day to sign up for MANDT training with our very own Mike Holdsworth — contact Mike for details and to sign up!
Let us know what you think – leave a comment!
