On May 12th, local radio station myFM handed out their community-voted Spirit Awards and the winner of this year’s Spirit Award for Favorite Health Care Worker is Carefor Pembroke Renfrew County Program Manager Jennifer St. Cyr.
“I am so grateful for this award but truly couldn’t accept it without acknowledging the amount of effort the Care Teams at Carefor Civic Complex and Mackay Centre make daily to care for our residents,” commented Jennifer. ”I’m grateful for the care and enthusiasm they put into serving our clients. I may be the manager, but when it comes to Carefor we are truly a team with a common goal of taking care of our clients. Often the clients see our staff more than their families and with that in mind, our team always tries to treat our clients like family. Throughout my time at Carefor I have witnessed the staff going the extra mile and truly making a difference in our clients’ lives, be it helping dress them up for Halloween or lending that extra helping hand to clients who need it most. So, thank you to the Carefor staff for making my role so rewarding.”
Joining the Carefor team in 2018, Jennifer has been part of the leadership team for five years helping manage and operate Carefor’s two Pembroke locations, Carefor Civic and Carefor Mackay Centre, as well as helping oversee the operations at Carefor Richmond Care home in Ottawa. As someone who has been part of the world of senior care for over 25 years Jennifer fully appreciates the hard work each member of the Care Team puts into taking care of seniors living at Carefor retirement homes.
