On top of all of the festive celebrations, including concerts, performances, outings, carolers, special dinners, and services, the Ardenwoods family caps the year with our annual Employee Appreciation Party. At Ardenwoods, we have a no tipping policy in place. Over the course of the year, residents and guests send their tips to the Employee Appreciation Fund. The funds are then distributed to the staff at our annual party.
Staff bring snacks and goodies, and residents and staff all gather together to eat and enjoy each other’s company.
This is always a joyful party. The residents get to recognize the staff for their hard work throughout the year, whether it’s the housekeepers, maintenance technicians, security guards, medicine technicians, administration, drivers, waiters, or our chefs. They’re grateful for the services they provide to the Ardenwoods community. The staff get to thank the residents for their generosity.
This year’s party boasted a record-breaking amount of funds raised for the staff. And the attendance was record-breaking, too! We had to bring in extra chairs to make sure there was enough seating for everyone.
Events like this, where residents and staff get to gather highlights our small-town atmosphere and enriches the lives of those who live and work here. Happy Holidays to all!
