The past year and a half has been very difficult for many Immanuel Lutheran Communities residents and their families. Our changing environment has been extremely challenging and during outbreaks of COVID or other illnesses, families place even greater than usual trust in our staff to care for your loved ones. When visitation is limited, you rely on nurses, CNAs, recreation staff members, and other dedicated team members to make sure your loved ones are supported emotionally as well as physically.
The Immanuel Foundation created the Employee Appreciation Fund for hourly employees of the Immanuel Skilled Care Center. You probably know that employees are not permitted to accept individual gifts or tips from residents or family members, and this fund is a way for you to let them know how much you appreciate what they do. All funds will be pooled together and divided based on hours worked among the Skilled Care Center and Retreat hourly employees as part of their holiday bonus. All contributions will remain anonymous
You probably know of a nurse who has taken extra time to listen to a story; a housekeeper who has offered a warm hug or a squeeze of the hand; a recreation staffer who has connected a resident to a family member on FaceTime; or a receptionist whose smile lit up a resident’s day. If you would like to honor these individuals, please consider making a gift to the Employee Appreciation Fund by November 30. Your gift will brighten the holiday season of staff members who go out of their way every day to brighten the lives of our residents here at Immanuel.
At the Immanuel Foundation, we believe that every senior living in Montana has the right to a safe, secure home in an engaging and supportive community. We work every day to make that vision a reality and your financial support is crucial. 60% of our Skilled Care residents are low income, Medicaid qualified. Immanuel Foundation raises funds to support these seniors in need.
