Amanda Kesselring, Hospice Aide from Ascension At Home was honored with the third quarter HIGH FIVE Award. In order to be nominated you have to meet consistently the following: You must apply exceptional interpersonal skills with patients, families, peers, or colleagues. You must demonstrate mutual trust, respect and emotional support to all, you must make a significant difference and create a sense of community, generate enthusiasm and energy and finally you must listen not only with your ears, but also with your heart. HIGH FIVE Award recipients are celebrated for their continuous support of our mission, role-model behavior and compassionate presence in the work place.
The HIGH FIVE award was developed to recognize associates from across all of our departments. HIGH FIVE recipients are honored at a department celebration that includes a traveling banner, a sensory reminder (chocolate chip cookies) intended to remind recipients of how special their gifts are each time they experience the smell of chocolate chip cookies. In addition, recipients receive a beautiful and meaningful Circle of Friends sculpture, hand-carved and signed by artists of the Shona Tribe in Africa.
