Meet Riley Coats, a caregiver at Avista Senior Living Summit at Sunland Springs in Mesa, Arizona, and October’s Fall Champion Hero. Riley is being celebrated not only for her commitment to fall prevention, but for her leadership, too. Says Memory Care Director Dana Olimb, “Riley is an employee with a positive attitude that helps boot team morale…She inspires others and keeps team members motivated, even during challenging times. Her optimism is infectious and contributes to a more cohesive and productive team.” Riley’s fall response is exactly what you’d hope for from your team: she gets down to the resident’s level and comforts them. We’re thankful for the dedication of caregivers like Riley, and honored to include her as a Fall Champion Hero.
