Smiles of staff members at Ann's Choice, the Erickson Senior Living community in Bucks County, Pa., are shining brighter than tinsel this holiday season, thanks to residents' generous donations to the 2022 Staff Appreciation Fund (SAF). Each year, Ann's Choice residents donate to the SAF to recognize the community's hourly employees, who work diligently to provide them with an industry-leading level of service. This year, residents contributed $305,000 to SAF.
The funds are dispersed among Ann's Choice's eligible employees, which include dining associates, security officers, maintenance workers, housekeepers, and medical and nursing assistants—all of whom are more than merry year-round.
At Ann's Choice Staff Appreciation celebration on December 7, employees enjoyed special treats and had the opportunity to contribute personalized messages of gratitude to the "Thank You" poster. The poster is currently on display on campus.
A total of 700 employees were celebrated and received a distribution from the Fund this year.
The spirit of the tight-knit community, bolstered by teamwork and residents' desire to give back, doesn't go unrecognized by Ann's Choice's executive team.
"At Ann's Choice, we genuinely care for one another, and I think our residents' generosity reflects that," says Executive Director Chris Donati. "Our employees work hard to provide a truly maintenance-free lifestyle, and residents realize how much better their lives are because of it."
