Celebrating Caregivers: Introducing the CECA Award

At CRi, we believe in the power of compassion, dedication, and the profound impact of exceptional care. That's why we are thrilled to share some heartwarming news with our community.

CRi is proud to announce a partnership with the CECA Foundation to launch the CECA Award, a program designed to honor and celebrate the outstanding care, achievements, and successes of our dedicated team members at CRi. The CECA Award, pronounced as "see'-ka," is more than just a recognition program; it's a heartfelt tribute to the caregivers who go above and beyond every day to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those we support.

The inspiration behind the CECA Award stems from the Lawlor family's experience. Matt and Rosemary Lawlor were deeply touched by the exceptional care Matt's mother, Mary Lawlor, received in her later years. They witnessed firsthand the compassion and companionship provided by nurses, housekeepers, porters, and other healthcare staff, which had a profound impact on their family.

Driven by their desire to honor these unsung heroes, the Lawlors, along with their sons, collaborated to create the CECA Award Program. It's a beautiful testament to the transformative power of kindness and the importance of recognizing meaningful acts of care and dedication.

Here at CRi, caring for our community is not just a job; it's our top priority and passion. The CECA Award is our way of shining a spotlight on the caregivers who make a difference every day. Whether clinical or non-clinical, every member of our team plays a vital role in creating a nurturing and supportive environment for those we serve.

Nomination for the CECA Award is open to all CRi team members, families, partners, & members of our community. You can share your story and nominate a deserving caregiver online at cecaaward.org/Guest/CRi, scan the QR code below with your mobile device, or fill out a nomination form at our front desk or Human Resources Department.

The CECA Award not only provides public recognition for outstanding staff members but also includes a quarterly $250 award as a token of appreciation for their exceptional service. What's more, if a person you nominate wins a quarterly award, you will receive a $50 bonus for your referral!

We are incredibly excited about this partnership with the CECA Foundation and the launch of the CECA Award. It embodies our commitment to recognizing and celebrating the exceptional dedication and care demonstrated by our staff members every day.

Thank you for being part of the CRi family and for your continued support in providing compassionate care to those we serve. Together, let's celebrate the caregivers who truly embody our mission of compassionate care and community support.
