Barbara Burkhardt | 100 Days of Heart of Caring

Barbara Burkhardt
Blossom Creek

Today’s Heart of Caring nominee comes with a sweet smile and a passion for making every resident feel like a member of the Blossom Creek family.

“She has always been a role model to our team members at our community and one big way she shows it, is by caring for our residents. she’s devoted to our residents, she always comes to work with a smile on her face and she always let the residents know how much she cares.”

Barbara’s team members recognized her not just for her positive attitude, but also for the way she brings a sense of calm and insight regarding ways to best care for Blossom Creek’s residents. She goes above and beyond to make sure every resident is safe and welcomed into the family.

“We had a resident here, before she passed a few months ago, that didn’t have any family or friends, [just one] brother who hardly came in. Barbara took it upon herself to be family to her and to show her how much she actually did care for her.”

“She’s consistently running back and forth here to ensure that all residents are happy and content in this community.”

Thank you, Barbara, for your commitment to caring for our residents as if they were your own family. Your heart of caring has such an impact on all you do, and we want to congratulate you on this well-deserved nomination!
