Q1 2021 C.A.R.E. Award Winners

Lakeland Care continues to recognize outstanding providers through the C.A.R.E. (Compassion, Accountability, Respect and Enrichment) Award. The C.A.R.E. Award is a way for our care teams to recognize the outstanding service of our providers and individual caregivers. Each quarter an internal Lakeland Care committee chooses three providers/caregivers from all care team submissions and the committee utilizes the C.A.R.E. principles to honor the recognized providers.






Stay at Home Care; Gary Z.

“Gary stepped up when a member’s wife went to the hospital and then to a skilled nursing facility. He provided 4 times a day visits for the member for an entire week while the team found respite. He ensured the member was safe and healthy during this time. Gary even assisted the member with getting his belongings over to respite so he could be comfortable. Gary truly went above and beyond to assist this member and LCI is forever thankful for his dedication and compassion. Thank you Gary.”
-Nominated by: Briana M. and Laura J.




Clarity Care; Kim H and Team
“Kim and her team worked very hard to find great residential placements for five of our residents within a two-week period. These residents needed quick placements for various reasons. She showed compassion in knowing that they needed a place they felt comfortable and safe, while respecting their individuality in finding a good fit for both the member and Clarity Care.”

-Nominated by: Lindsay R. and Joan M.









Anita Odekirk AFH; Anita O.

“Anita goes above and beyond to create a loving and compassionate atmosphere for our member. She has folded him into her family and helped enrich every aspect of his life. Most recently she provided him with an opportunity to travel. He was able to see the Grand Canyon and was able to dip his toes into the ocean for the first time.”
