Charles Ebbinghaus, a longtime Fairview volunteer, was the recipient of the 2016 Jacqueline B. Nixon Community Service Award for his many years of Giving Back to the Community. The award was presented by the City of Groton and Groton Utilities at the annual City of Groton Day celebration. As part of this recognition, Charlie was given the opportunity to have $1,000 donated to the charity of his choice and he chose Fairview.

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.

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
