There are dozens of ways that members of River Garden Senior Services staff make a difference in the lives of our residents, clients and families, and Coves members. We hear about them every day – through letters, phone calls and surveys.
Many residents, members, clients and families have asked how one can say “Thank You” for the care and attention during an individual’s stay at River Garden or while living at The Coves.
River Garden’s policy does not permit staff to solicit or accept tips or gifts in any form. The Staff Appreciation Fund allows individuals and / or families to formally recognize the exceptional care and attention received.
If you have been touched by the River Garden family then we would encourage you to pass your gratitude along with an honorary donation to our agency. A message of appreciation will be shared with your caregiver(s), the supervisor and his / her professional colleagues.
Families may also acknowledge a care unit with a basket of fruit, a box of kosher cookies, or candy, which would be available to all on the care unit. If you have any questions concerning permissible foods please talk with your social worker. In addition, handmade craft items (ex: beaded necklaces, handmade pottery, painting, etc.) crafted at River Garden from River Garden materials are permitted to be given to staff.
We very much appreciate that you may want to honor our staff for all they do for your loved ones, and hope that you will take advantage of the many ways you can do so while helping us maintain this policy.
