Transportation Driver, Lake Howard Heights
What better way to kick off our 100 Days of Heart of Caring than with an individual who proves that bringing a heart of caring to everyday tasks make all the difference. Ron Bolin was nominated for his kindness, selfless commitment to residents, and the positive spirit he brings to the community from behind the wheel.
“Just having this happy man with his smiling face walk through the halls of [Lake Howard Heights] gives us all a boost. He is truly a wonderful, caring man. He never is cross with anyone.”
“He makes each one of us feel like we are special. He cares about all of us.” “He makes our day better by the little things he does for us.”
“He tries to accommodate our every whim.” “He won’t leave until he knows we are safely where we are supposed to be.”
“All of the residents love him and are always saying how kind and respectful he is. Ron likes his job, and you can tell in how he conducts himself each and every day.”
These comments are just the tip of the iceberg of the comments Ron’s directors hear every single day. According to the Lake Howard Heights team, not a day goes by without someone, whether resident, family or fellow staff member, sharing a story of amazement about something Ron has done for them.
“Recently when a resident’s spouse was taken to the hospital, [Ron] was asked by a family member to take the remaining spouse for a visit. Ron re-worked his bus schedule to be able to accommodate that family member and resident – never a question or problem.”
Thank you, Ron, for all you do to emulate our core values. We are so grateful to have you and your heart of caring for our residents on our team!
