When you have a really great caregiver at your community, you want to shout it from the rooftops (and make sure they hear how valued they are), so that’s just what we’re going to do with our Staff Spotlight!
We want to call out Trameka Rollins, who’s been a Resident Assistant in our nursing department at Cherrywood Pointe of Plymouth for over nine months. Trameka goes above and beyond, and treats our residents like family.
What do her team members say about her?
“Trameka has been a blessing to our community, for the residents, their family members and her co-workers. She holds strong in her integrity, is always an advocate, and it shows through in the job she does here every day.”
Megan Grunerud, Dimension Wellness Coordinator
“Trameka takes initiative and jumps in to help everyone. She takes her time to listen to the residents, and shows patience, love and compassion in her interactions. She’s willing to pick up extra shifts to help out when needed.”
Jody Malik, Director of Health Services
“Trameka is always willing to help me with any questions I may have. I witnessed her compassion to a resident’s wife, crying in one of our community spaces. Trameka walked back with her to her apartment and sat and visited with her. She went that extra mile.”
What do Cherrywood Pointe residents and family members say about her?
“How do you even describe Trameka?” That isn’t easy!! She truly cares about every resident here like they are her parent or grandparent. She has a heart of gold. She is so patient. She meets each resident with a smile and talks to them at their level, getting down so they can see her, hear her, laugh with her and hold her hand.
Each resident wants to do that because she has gained their trust. She takes the time to get to know who they are what their story was, she cares and talks to them like they are a real person. This isn’t just a job to her. This is her extended family.
She moves quickly up and down the halls because there is always work to be done but she doesn’t ever rush a resident. She is reliable. If I ask her about something, I know it will get done.
My parents love Trameka and their faces show that every time she walks into their room or interacts with them. She is a true gift and we are so thankful for her. Thank you Trameka for all you do for my parents and for all the residents at Cherrywood Pointe! There is so much that can be said about this amazing lady!”
Barb, Family Member of Cherrywood Pointe Residents
Trameka, we are so thankful to have you on our team and in our Cherrywood Pointe family. We are so grateful for all you do, and for the dignity, integrity, service and compassion that you show to the people you care for every day.
