Lola has been working at CDS Monarch's Beckwith Road Residence since she joined the team 23 years ago. As part of her daily duties Lola strives to get the individuals engaged in a variety of activities, like games, music, movies, shopping, outings, and everyone's favorite - exercising! She also passes medications, assists at meal time, and trains new staff members. The other staff look up to Lola as a role model and as someone they can depend on. Since she began at Beckwith, Lola also served as an advocate for one of the residents, assisting them with laundry, shopping and personalizing their room. with The thing that she cherishes most about working here "is making everyone's day brighter, and being a part of the individuals' family."

"Lola is all around a great person and is very dedicated to the quality of life for the individuals in the home. She has a wonderful bond with the residents who live there and it is evident through the relationships she has with them and her interactions, that she has also been a teacher to other employees within the home. She is a great asset to the Beckwith Road team," stated Terria Thompson, Residential Associate Director.

Lola's advice to her fellow employees is to "learn all about the individuals you support - their routines, habits, needs - that way you will know how to best assist them."

When she isn't working Lola likes to go to the gym and workout, attend church and spend time with her grandkids. Thank you Lola for your dedication and tremendous support of the individuals at Beckwith all these years!
