I was on my last room to cleaned when I heard a knock. It was one of my housekeeper co-worker. She told me congratulations. I replied for what. She told me that I got an award. I said you are kidding, right? I said no! I do not know what you are talking about. She said that I was the October True And Tried award which only the Supervisor can nominated you.
After working for almost nine months, I am beyond shocked, proud and humble to receive my very first award. My co-worker said that I will receive a certificate in the mail. I will also get a PTO (personal time off) with pay or you can choose cash. I work five and a half hours. I am thankful for my Supervisor for acknowledging my hard work. Though there are times that working is a little challenging when toilets are plugged but making the residents smile while talking and listening to their stories is the best part of working in a nursing home.
