Marie Weise, Transport Aide

She is a real self-starter; constantly attending to her duties without prompting and eagerly available to assist whenever requested. Patient management is clearly enhanced when Marie is available. Clinicians can remain in the department providing patient care knowing full well Marie will attend to transporting residents to and from the therapy department. Besides assisting with patients, Marie also restocks linens and supplies, cleans equipment, and helps maintain a clean and orderly department. Marie is an integral member of the therapy staff and her dedication to duty sets an impressive example for all.”

She never gets upset or flustered by her ever-changing schedule. She always shows compassion and care for all residents she encounters. Marie deserves this recognition for many reasons but mostly because she truly cares about the residents and staff members at Cedar Haven.”
“Marie goes over and above her duties as transporter for the therapy department. She also helps keep the department and equipment clean. Marie is an important part of the therapy team due to her dedication and work ethic. Somehow, she keeps all the therapists’ schedules coordinated and running smoothly. She even finds a few minutes to lend a hand when needed with the residents’ needs.”
“Marie has been a KEY component to the therapy department for years. As our staff size triple, Marie has made it her mission to do everything possible to assist every therapist and resident. She is so deserving of recognition for her hard work and dedication to resident quality of life!”
