Lake City, IA: 30 Years of Excellence

Thirty years of hard work and dedication deserves celebrating! The Leadership Team gathered together to congratulate Deb Jones, Life Enrichment Coordinator on her years of service. A cake decorated in her favorite color, blue, was enjoyed by everyone. During the celebration, Deb shared her experiences throughout her 30 years of service at Shady Oaks, including the improvements she has seen in Long-Term Care. Deb, said, “I have seen so many changes in Long-term Care over the years. The best thing that happened in our building was the change from structured care to resident centered care. It truly created an entire culture change. This gave our residents the opportunity to make more choices, improving their quality of life.”
Deb works hand in hand with the Life Enrichment assistants to come up with innovative activities, as well as, carry out classic favorites, such as BINGO. We here at Shady Oaks are so thankful for the many talents and creativity Deb shares within her commitment to service. Thank you, Deb, for your dedication to Shady Oaks’ Mission, Vision, and Values!

Excellent Teams-We will select and develop team members who radiate warmth, compassion and respect while skillfully performing their duties.
