    Award-Winning Caregivers

    C ongratulations to Elaine Livingston and Herlande Leriche for receiving the Excellence

    in Caregiving Award from the

    Alzheimers Association - CT

    Chapter. Fairview was proud

    to nominate both! Elaines

    nomination read: Elaines husband

    was a resident in Fairviews Guided

    Journeys program. Despite all the

    struggles that family caregivers

    experience with dementia/

    Alzheimers, Mrs. Livingston always

    reached out to support others.

    Unfortunately, Mr. Livingston

    passed away this summer. Despite

    her grief, Mrs. Livingston continues

    to give back as a volunteer at


    Herlande Leriche has been a CNA

    for two years in Fairviews Memory

    Care Program. She was nominated

    because, she takes the time to get

    to know each resident individually

    and treats them with respect and

    dignity. Her co-workers admire her,

    the family members and caregivers

    appreciated her, and the residents

    love her. Herlande is a true

    champion and wonderful caregiver

    for Fairviews Alzheimers patients.

    Walk to End AlzheimersFairview is once a again a top fundraiser for the Walk to End Alzheimers. This year, our team of 45 walkers raised over $7,000! As the number one fundraiser for last years event, reigning champs Fairview had the honor of cutting the ribbon. The Fairview team cheered on its CEO and Administrator James Rosenman as he cut the ribbon to kickoff the 2016 walk.

    Fairview Medal Dinner (continued from cover)

    Warren Smith and Marshall Kalin join the

    distinguished ranks of past winners of the Fairview

    Medal. This prestigious honor is given annually to two

    individuals who have demonstrated an extraordinary

    commitment to Fairview over an extended period of

    time. These men and women have risen above their

    peers by providing invaluable assistance to Fairview,

    whether through personal effort, selfless gifts of time,

    financial aid, or other behind-the-scenes involvement.

    Without such people, Fairview could not maintain its

    high level of excellence.

    1 In addition to honoring these two individuals, we were proud to present Fairviews Community Partner Award. This award is given to a business or

    organization in the region that has consistently offered

    its support to Fairview. Fairview presented this award to

    Stonington Odd Fellows Lodge #26 I.O.O.F. as they

    have been a steadfast supporter of Fairview and our


    2 This year the Kalin Scholarship was presented at the dinner. The Kalin Scholarship was started by Marshall Kalin in honor of his wife, Edith Kalin, and

    may be awarded to a Fairview staff member who has

    been with Fairview for two years or more and is enrolled

    in an LPN, RN, or BSN Program at any accredited

    college or university. This years recipient was Brittany


    3 Fairview also recognized five longstanding staff members for their years of commitment to Fairview with the Longevity Award:

    Cynthia Mantle 26 years

    Maligwas McGillivray 23 years

    Susana Darigan 23 years

    Arlene Savago 21 years

    Janine West 19 years

    These five staff members had a combined total of 112

    years of service to Fairview and its residents.

    Fairview greatly appreciates the commitment from its

    dedicated staff and the continued efforts from the

    Community Partner Award recipient Stonington Odd

    Fellows Lodge #26 and the honored Fairview Medal

    recipients Warren Smith and Marshall Kalin. Their

    collective dedication and service to Fairview have been

    an inspiration.
