Silverado Senior Living Administrator Awarded Assisted Living Manager of the Year
Administrator Amber McCord was recognized at the Arizona Assisted Living Federation of America Annual Conference as the 2012 Manager of the Year for her impact on the lives of Silverado residents, families and associates.
(PRWEB) May 30, 2012 – With over 15 years of healthcare experience, it is no surprise that Silverado – Scottsdale Administrator Amber McCord received the prestigious recognition of Manager of the Year among all assisted living communities in the state of Arizona. Recently, her exceptional leadership and nurturing approach also earned her the Community of the Year Award among all Silverado Senior Living locations across the country.
These distinctions not only speak to Amber’s high marks in associate satisfaction but, more importantly, to the community environment she has created for individuals living with memory loss.
“Silverado’s founding mission is to provide quality of life to those with memory-impairment,” she explains. “I consider this recognition a testament to the compassionate care we provide for our residents and their families every day.”
In her tenure at Silverado, Amber has created a dynamic partnership with each of her resident’s family members to understand the history and specific needs of each person who resides at the Scottsdale community. To ensure that her staff also embraced this resident-centered approach, Amber instituted the Shining Star Program to show appreciation for those who regularly went above and beyond their normal job duties to make a difference in the lives of residents, families and associates alike.
As a manager, mentor and resident advocate, Amber is truly one of Silverado’s shining stars.
