NCAL names Lauri Morris of Prestige Assisted Living at Kalispell Noble Caregiver in Assisted Living
Kalispell, Mont. – Prestige Care Inc., a leading provider of senior living and skilled nursing and rehabilitation care, is pleased to announce that Lauri Morris, Life Enrichment Director at Prestige Senior Living at Kalispell, recently received the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) Noble Caregiver in Assisted Living Award.
The NCAL, one of the nation’s leading assisted living advocacy organizations, recognizes individuals and communities from around the country who demonstrate exemplary care. Morris has served as Life Enrichment Director at Kalispell since 2015 and was chosen as the Noble Caregiver in Assisted Living for her positive contributions that improved quality of life for residents and helped lead to a better work environment for the Prestige Assisted Living at Kalispell community.
“Lauri is a shining example of the passion and dedication our staff put into their work across all communities,” said Harold Delamarter, founder and CEO of Prestige Care. “The NCAL Awards Program selects only the best of the best in our industry, and we’re so proud that Lauri has been recognized on a national level for all her hard work.”
Morris was nominated for the award by her colleagues for her role in introducing many memorable and impactful programs for residents at Kalispell. One of her most successful initiatives is a program called “Celebrate Your Neighbor,” where Morris works with a select resident each month to share their life story with other residents, family members, and staff. As part of this program, she also takes time to find and invite meaningful acquaintances to surprise the resident during their special event.
“The NCAL is privileged to recognize these individuals who consider it their life’s work to serve seniors and individuals with disabilities,” said NCAL Executive Director Scott Tittle.
The award winners will be recognized Oct. 15, 2017, at a special awards ceremony during the 11th Annual NCAL Day, held as part of the 68th Annual AHCA/NCAL Annual Convention & Expo.
