Each year Caressant Care Nursing and Retirement Homes selects one special employee as the winner of the Heart of Gold award. This honour is given to a staff member who truly goes above and beyond the call of duty and makes the lives of our residents just that much better.

We are proud to showcase this year's Heart of Gold recipient: Tammy Minogue, PSW Caressant Care Courtland Nursing Home.

The nomination committee was unanimous in their endorsement of Tammy: "over the years since Tammy has been a staff at Caressant Care she has volunteered her time and energy for the residents. She displays a level of creativity that makes the residents feel appreciated, valued and cared for. In 2019, she made Halloween costumes for 55 residents, created a fall backdrop for a photo session, created a memorial sign for our angel tree. In 2018, Tammy was a hug supporter for Jersey Day. She is always thinking of how she can make the residents feel loved and has demonstrated what it is to have a heart of gold. Tammy has a very special spark that helps to make our world a better place.

The home celebrated Tammy's achievement with a Heart of Gold pin, cake and flowers on February 20.

Thank you, Tammy for all you do for the residents of Caressant Care Courtland. You truly do possess a "Heart of Gold."
