Reminiscence Care Team
Sunrise of Beverly Hills, CA
Penny's love, care and ability to receive as much enjoyment from her work as she gives to others makes Penny a very special asset to the Reminiscence Program.
Pennylope has been an important part of the Reminiscence Program at Sunrise of Beverly Hills for seven years and continues to demonstrate her passion for seniors every time she comes to work. Her positive attitude and expression of joy in service has enabled her to be a steward for our community’s Reminiscence Program.
Pennylope is known to find the most creative ways of providing individualized care to our residents. She will often make “dates” with the residents to provide one-on-one attention while involving them in the life skills they have enjoyed in the past.
Every Friday evening Pennylope leads the community’s Shabbat Services with the singing of Jewish prayers and songs. She has taken it upon herself to learn the Hebrew words in order to provide our residents with the same experience as the Shabbat they practiced in their own homes. Jewish or not, all are able to participate in a little, but joyful, celebration together under her guidance.
What Pennylope’s team members say about her:
“Penny’s name is often mentioned when family members write thank you notes to our department. Her love, care and ability to receive as much enjoyment from her work as she gives to others makes Penny a very special asset to the Reminiscence Program. Each and every time Penny comes onto the floor, she goes above and beyond the written responsibilities of a lead care manager. Her enthusiasm and true belief in the Sunrise Principles of Service has waves throughout our department.”
