January 2020



January’s Employee of the Month is Elisabeth Hedrick. Elisabeth is a Food & Nutrition Services’ Aide. She has worked here at GRCC since March 2018 while also attending Petersburg High School.

Gina McDonald is Odyssey Rehab's January CNA of the month! Gina is a hard worker and is able to adapt to any situation she is presented with. She cares for the residents and collaborates with the therapy team regarding patient care.



December was a month of doing things a bit differently due to being quarantined. We did get to take the residents who wanted to see the lights in the City Park and Welton Park out to do so on the 3rd of December. Upon returning to the facility, they had snacks of cookies and hot chocolate or coffee. They all enjoyed this time as it brought back many memories.

We worked out on the halls doing activities and passed out many gifts from the community and churches. This brightened their days. We also had Denver the Elf come in to pick up the toys that were bought for “Toys for Happiness” by the residents. They donate what they want from their winnings at games they play. Our residents have been doing this for many years. This year they donated $300.00 in nickels to be spent on the toys.

Danielle Berg, Christina Thorne, and some of the nursing staff baked and passed out cookies for the residents to enjoy, this was an enjoyable time for staff and residents alike. The residents were able to enjoy Christmas and New Years with their families.  

We in the Activity Department wish everyone a joyous New Year and hope that you will think of spending some time with our residents, enriching their lives. You will be a blessing and receive even more of a blessing.

Happy New Year & God Bless,

Cindy L. Evans ADC
