The way we work and live has changed in so many ways since the pandemic was officially declared in March. One thing that has remained the same is Carlton’s focus on our residents’ and associates’ health and safety. Sherrilynn Geban, Memory Care Programming Specialist, has stepped up with her genuine smile and can-do attitude to help keep our communities healthy and running smoothly.
A member of Carlton’s Home Office team, Sherrilynn has been working the frontlines in our Communities when needed. Whether she’s responding to resident calls, sanitizing surfaces, taking temperatures, or simply lending a listening ear, Sherrilynn is using her Care experience and enthusiasm to boost morale wherever she goes.
“Sherrilynn walks the community with a radio on and helps the Care team answer call lights, pendant pushes and will just stop and spend time with some of our residents,” says Lisa Schumann, Regional Vice President of Operations, Sacramento. “An example of this is, Sherilynn sat with a resident who is having a hard time since her husband passed away about a month ago; she was very upset. Sherrilyn sat and talked with her until she was feeling better. She was able to hear her stories and share some stories of her own. She made the resident laugh, and she was smiling on her way out of the room when she thanked me for Sherrilynn being there.”
Like a true leader, Sherrilynn has also been hard at work behind the scenes.
“Sherrilynn has worked to support our Sacramento Carlton team in so many different ways. Wherever we need her, she always quickly responds with an enthusiastic yes and is always asking me what else can she do,” says Schumann. “Sherrilynn comes in each day, bringing her warm smile and her very positive attitude. She truly rubs off on the staff.”
Alli Groves, Carlton’s Director of Clinical Operations, commends Sherrilynn for not backing down when faced with challenges and approaching each situation with warmth and positivity.
We are very fortunate to have Sherrilynn as a member of the Carlton Senior Living family. We applaud her commitment to making a meaningful difference in the lives of our residents and associates in a time when kindness and support are needed most.
Thank you for your dedication, your tireless efforts, and your passion for serving others, Sherrilynn. You are a true hero!
