Russell Home Staff

Each month our employees vote on who they want to see as their “employee of the month.” Although they all are so deserving I want to tell you about another very special award that is given out by the Russell Home, “The Grandma Russell Spirit Award.” It’s an award that is only given out on a rare occasion when we feel it is very well earned and deserved. Although we believe all our employees are amazing I want to tell you about who and why these exceptional employees were chosen for this award. They were chosen for The Grandma Russell Spirit Award for showing unconditional love with a smile, selflessness and joy while caring for each and every resident within the Russell Home. They go beyond the call of duty and what is asked of them. So, next time you visit Russell Home thank our staff ~ Being told you’re appreciated is one of the simplest and most uplifting things you can hear. This award has only been given out eight times in four years. The following recipients have received “The Grandma Russell Spirit Award.”

  • Ashley Jackson (caregiver) – April 2014

“There are four kinds of people in the world: those who have been caregivers; those who currently are caregivers; those who will be caregivers; and those who will need caregivers.”
