As the holidays approach, people who are looking to show their appreciation often ask me – what’s a good gift?
All the services we provide at Copley are a result of a team effort. That includes the people they may not see every day. Without housekeeping, residents wouldn’t have clean sheets and a safe environment. Without kitchen workers, residents wouldn’t have hot, healthy meals. Without nurses, administrators, maintenance, a range of health care providers… you get the picture. Copley is like a village, and it takes the whole village to make sure your loved ones are taken care of and we exceed your expectations.
If you are thinking about giving a gift, please consider making it a gift that everyone can enjoy from all areas of Copley, not just specific individuals. Here are a few ideas:
- Gift baskets
- Special coffee and teas for the break room
- Cookies – either homemade or store-bought
- Chocolates and/or candies
- Specialty popcorns
- Fruit trays
- Anything that can be shared (note: you don’t have to worry about getting enough for everyone – with other gifts from kind people like yourself, there’s always enough to go around!)
I can’t stress this enough though: gifts are certainly not necessary! They are always appreciated but never expected. If you are the type that can’t help yourself, I hope you choose to give a gift that all the hardworking staff at Copley can enjoy.
I hope to see many of you at Copley’s Holiday Party; it’s our way of saying thanks to all of our residents and their families!
