Michelle Mohaupt is also a much-loved team member, says administrator

Country Terrace administrator Karen Dann says two of Michelle Mohaupt’s top strengths are her ability to adapt to any situation and her willingness to help her co-workers.

It’s for these reasons Michelle, a personal support worker (PSW) at the Komoka, Ont. long-term care home, was nominated by her peers for the Everyday Hero Award, Karen says.

“Her best strength is her ability to adapt to things easily in the home – when new residents come in the home, she is able to help them with anything they need,” Karen tells The OMNIway. “She is very easygoing and can go with the flow.”

Karen says Michelle is very responsible, has a strong work ethic and does not shy away from challenges. She’s also known around Country Terrace as someone who will step in to help her co-workers without a second thought.

“If she sees someone somewhere else needs help, she’s right there to lend a hand,” Karen says, adding Michelle is also a strong communicator and works well with residents’ families.

“Michelle is a very hard worker. She’s well-liked by everybody and she is great with the residents. She always takes the extra time and will never cut corners.”

The Everyday Hero Award is given out annually by each of OMNI’s 18 long-term care homes to recognize staff members who demonstrate extraordinary dedication to residents and co-workers.

OMNI announced this year’s recipients of the Everyday Hero, Inspired Leader and Elisabeth Hinton Memorial awards at the managers’ forum in Kingston in May. Managers from OMNI’s long-term care homes were presented with the names of the award winners. Homes are presenting the awards during their own ceremonies.
