Smiles of staff members at Eagle’s Trace, the Erickson Senior Living-managed community in West Houston, are shining brighter than tinsel this holiday season, thanks to residents’ generous donations to the 2022 Staff Appreciation Fund (SAF).
Each year, residents of Eagle’s Trace donate to the SAF as a way of recognizing the community’s hourly employees, who work diligently to provide them an industry-leading level of service. In 2022 alone, residents contributed more than $214,000 to the SAF.
The funds were then dispersed to 409 eligible employees, which include dining associates, security officers, maintenance workers, housekeepers, medical and nursing assistants, and many more.
At a special reception held on December 6 that decked the halls, residents had the opportunity to express their appreciation in person during the check distribution, and in kind, employees enjoyed the opportunity to say thanks as well.
The spirit of the tight-knit community, bolstered by this teamwork and residents’ desire to give back, doesn’t go unrecognized by its leaders.
“Thank you to our residents for contributing to the fund this year!” says Executive Director Steve Aigner. “Staff and residents develop mutually supportive relationships that are founded in respect. In witnessing these connections blossom, I’m constantly reminded how special Eagle’s Trace really is.”
