On Nov. 11, the Kentucky Association of Health Care Facilities/Kentucky Center for Assisted Living (KAHCF/KCAL) honored Nazareth Home as one of several premier long-term care facilities with a Best of Kentucky Nursing and Rehabilitation Award. Nazareth Home was honored to be a part of this elite group of leaders in the industry at the quality awards banquet.
The Best of Kentucky – Nursing and Rehabilitation honorees were selected based on CMS star ratings of four or higher to apply, and then satisfaction surveys of residents and their families.
Along with a 2021 Best of Kentucky Award, three Nazareth Home employees received individual awards as follows:
“We are honored to again be a recipient of a Best of Kentucky Award,” said Nazareth Home President/CEO Mary Haynes. “We are also extremely proud to have Katrina, Matt, and Jason as part of our incredible team. They are more than deserving of the awards they received. They embody our mission and values, going above and beyond to support our team members and bring great joy to the elders.”
“We were honored to be able to recognize the strength and resilience of these nursing facilities and their staff. It is a special group of people who dedicate their lives to providing outstanding care and compassion to their residents,” said KAHCF President Betsy Johnson. “This recognition is a testament to their dedication to their residents.”
Long-term care providers attended the 2021 Annual Meeting & Expo, and were energized by general sessions challenging them with strategies to cope with stress on the job, hiring and retaining quality staff, COVID-19 safety measurements, and regulatory issues. On Nov. 10, KCAL held its KCAL Day for Assisted Living Communities. Also, more than 100 vendors exhibited during the Expo, showcasing the latest innovations in providing quality care.
