Morn­ing Pointe lead res­i­dent as­sis­tant re­ceives ‘Ex­ceed­ing Ex­pec­ta­tions’ Award

Calhoun Times - - GORDONLIFE -

Morn­ing Pointe of Cal­houn would like to con­grat­u­late Jill Phipps, win­ner of the “Ex­ceed­ing Ex­pec­ta­tions” award for this quar­ter. Phipps is a lead res­i­dent as­sis­tant in The Lantern mem­ory care com­mu­nity within Morn­ing Pointe of Cal­houn. Since join­ing the Morn­ing Pointe fam­ily in July of 2015, Phipps has con­sis­tently pro­vided ex­cel­lent care to the res­i­dents, clearly tak­ing great pride in her work. She has a heart of gold and is loved by both res­i­dents and as­so­ciates.

Mary Braden, the Lantern Pro­gram Di­rec­tor at Morn­ing Pointe of Cal­houn, ex­plains the many self­less acts that make Phipps de­serv­ing of this award: “The Lantern has been greatly blessed by Jill and her hus­band, Lynn. They have made signs that dec­o­rate the walls and res­i­dents’ doors. When a res­i­dent said he could not see the clock, Jill and Lynn made a 40-inch clock to hang on the wall. They have also made a condo for The Lantern’s pet rab­bit. One of the res­i­dents told Jill that he wished he could plant a gar­den. The next day, Jill came in with plants, and they started our court­yard gar­den.”

Phipps states that both her par­ents and Lynn’s par­ents suf­fered from Alzheimer’s dis­ease, so they love do­ing any­thing they can to help make our res­i­dents lives bet­ter. Clearly, her work at Morn­ing Pointe is very per­sonal to her, and that love of and pas­sion for se­nior mem­ory care is what makes Phipps so Pic­tured, Morn­ing Pointe of Cal­houn lead res­i­dent as­sis­tant Jill Phipps and her hus­band, Lynn Phipps.
