“Have you ever heard of Super Woman or Wonder Woman? If so, you may have met our Nicole Raasch” or Nikki as she is known to her Azura family and one of Azura’s Annual True Blue Award recipients!
Each year Azura gives a very special True Blue Award to two care team members and one leadership team member for their dedication to following our Core Values. These individuals are nominated by their peers and family members with nominations being accepted throughout the year.
Nikki is the House Manager at our Azura Memory Care of Oak Creek community and our second True Blue Award recipient. Nikki was nominated by multiple Team Members for following our Core Values.
According to them, “She is truly an example of a True Blue coworker…always willing to jump in to assist or help with residents, challenging behaviors and goes above and beyond her position.”
Nikki is flexible in helping her Team with their schedule, compassionate in understanding their situations and always treats them professionally and with kindness and respect. She also has been an EXCEPTIONAL resource to our new House Managers offering to train with them and create a “Helpful Hints” binder to ensure their success.
In terms of our residents her team states “there is nothing Nikki can’t do.” She bakes; sews – even making the team headbands; is computer savvy; spends time with the residents; does the scheduling; helps on the floor with homemaking, laundry or wherever she is needed.
Nikki does not hesitate to assist, always does it with a smile and according to her Team “puts pizzazz in everything she does.” They also state, “If someone in my family needed care, they would be in good hands with Nikki being there.”
Thank you, Nikki for showing RESPECT, helping those in our family with RECOVERY, being INNOVATVE in what you do and for being EXCEPTIONAL. It is apparent we have RETAINed the finest in you and that you are truly TRUE BLUE!!
