We’re proud to introduce Sook Jung, this month’s Fall Champion Hero and a Caregiver in the Garden House at Merrill Gardens Santa Maria. While Sook has only been in her position for a year, she’s already making a huge impact in her community and was called one of the team’s “most important and improved staff members” by Gary King, Garden House Director and Sook’s nominator. Know a Fall Champion Hero? Nominate them today.
Sook is known for her attention to detail, both when assisting residents and when following protocol. “Over the last six months her attention to details such as getting down at residents’ level after a fall, gathering information, reviewing videos, calling for assistance, using proper body mechanics and following our company protocols and paperwork requirements has assisted us in a big way,” Gary says.
And Sook brings more to her community than her preciseness in following best practices, she brings a positive spirit, too. Gary adds, “Her sincere effort to provide her best every day is invaluable.” We’re grateful for Sook’s commitment to resident well-being and dedication to fall prevention. If you know someone like Sook who should be a Fall Champion Hero, please share your story with us.
