Whether we’re supporting our employees as they reach their wellness goals, serving up heart-healthy meals in our dining rooms, or having a heartfelt conversation with our residents, we always try to keep in mind the needs of the heart. In support of the American Heart Association and in honor of American Heart Month, we held a contest challenging our campuses to throw a Go Red Celebration! Their efforts reminded us that our campuses are full of people with dedication, compassion, and a whole lotta heart!
Here are our 2018 Go Red Day Winners!
Cobblestone Crossings Health Campus in Terre Haute, Indiana
“For Go Red Day, the residents and staff at Cobblestone Crossings joined in to help raise awareness for the National Go Red for Women Campaign. Everyone wore red in support of our slogan, “Go Red for Heart Health!” Our Dining Services team prepared heart healthy meals and platters to promote healthy eating. And, encouraged by our residents, we started a Facebook Fundraiser to help our cause. How did we entice the community to participate? We challenged our Director of Plant Operations, Wes, to a ‘Go Red and Get Active Challenge!” We raised nearly $100, so Wes, along with other enthusiastic staff members and Assisted Living Resident, Carol M., took on the Cha Cha Slide Plank-Style! They all did an awesome job showing their support for such a great cause. Here at CCHC, we love Going Red! See more of the fun we had on our Twitter and Facebook pages!”
- Bree Sparks, Life Enrichment Director at Cobblestone Crossings
Genoa Retirement Village in Genoa, Ohio
“At Genoa Retirement Village, we encouraged all employees and residents to wear red to show support for Heart Health! As incentive, those who wore red were entered into a drawing for a Valentine’s Day basket, and everyone was thanked with a heart-shaped cookie. Everyone got in on the action that day! Our Life Enrichment team hosted an activity where we made red bow ties for the fellas so they could show their support in style. The Dining Services team decorated the dining room with red balloons at all the tables and made heart shaped sugar cookies for dessert. We also hosted an education session on the importance of heart health and how to achieve it, and featured our very own black, white and red photos campaign on Facebook!”
- Leslie Ryan, Community Services Representative at Genoa Retirement Village
Trilogy Health Services would like to thank all of our campuses for showing support for the American Heart Association on February 2nd.
We Heart You!
