A nurse who coordinates the Telemate medicine program for Trevecca Towers has been named Nashville News Channel 5’s “My Hero” for her compassionate care. Cristina Whitley was nominated for the award by Kim Phillips, Lead Resident Services Coordinator at Trevecca Towers.
In her nomination, Kim said that Cristina brings hope and joy to the residents she serves. It is not unusual for Cristina to have a few residents waiting at her door on Monday morning to check in and tell her about their week. She takes the time to visit with each one so residents feel seen and heard You can read Kim’s nomination here and you can view Channel 5’s news story on Cristina here on YouTube.
This story is a reminder that there are heroes all around us, working quietly to make a difference in the lives of others. Kudos to both Cristina and Kim! We are grateful for your work with our residents at Trevecca Towers.
Dandridge Tower residents cleaned up at a giveaway event on Friday where they got free household soaps, cleaners, sponges, buckets and other supplies—everything they need to keep their homes clean and healthy. The items were donated by the community thanks to the support of Nashville Radio Station 92Q and Mollie Vaughn from Bald, Beautiful and Bold, which sponsored a donation drive prior to today’s event. Special shout out to Dandridge Resident Service Coordinator Joy who organized both events for the benefit of our 150+ residents. We appreciate you all!
Chippington Towers staff pulled a fast one on Regional Property Manager Dawn Wolfe. Responding quickly to a request from Assistant Manager Tonya Johnson who asked for an “in-person” meeting about an important matter, Dawn came right away to assist with the problem. But when Dawn arrived, she was greeted with a surprise birthday party instead.
Senior Community Manager Moe Perry said Dawn is always willing to go the extra mile to help them succeed and the team members just wanted to show Dawn how much they appreciate her leadership and support.
Harriman Gardens held a cookout for the residents in July and Stonecrest made a huge splash with its annual SummerFest, a fun-filled day where families soak up the summer sun and water fun.
