ALFA Champion for Seniors Recognizes Autumn Ferguson
Silverado's Autumn Ferguson was honored with the ALFA Champion for Seniors Award. She serves others with love and compassion and is the lead caregiver for the evening shift at Silverado. Many of the residents she serves have the challenge of experiencing symptoms of Sundowner’s Syndrome. Autumn uses her personal knowledge of the residents to calm and redirect them in the evenings, thus decreasing the needs for anti-anxiety medications.
She assists in engagement activities that provide meaning and purpose. She often provides one-on-one care by walking, sharing snacks, looking at magazines, albums and books. She is often found massaging lotions onto resident hands and feet. She is a leader who steps up to assist all residents and caregivers. We are always amazed at her consistent level of energy and kindness with the residents, families and associates.
Congratulations to Autumn!
