Each year, the Good Samaritan Society honors staff members, a leader and a volunteer as National Ever Forward Champions. These individuals embody the values of calling, community, courage and service.
The phrase “ever forward” was used by the Good Samaritan Society’s Founder, the Rev. August “Dad” Hoeger. It reflected his ongoing sense of faith in God and optimism for the future. The phrase is still fitting today for the Society’s staff members and volunteers.
Congratulations to our 2020 Ever Forward Champions!
Veronica Glienke – Caregiver Champion
Veronica Glienke’s goal as a resident care manager is helping residents feel at home at Good Samaritan Society – Moscow Village in Moscow, Idaho.
“Veronica takes the time with each person and makes them feel special,” says Jamie Berg, Moscow Village administrator. “She loves and cares for every single person that’s in our building.”
Each day, residents and staff members witness Veronica’s compassion and perseverance.
“She is awesome with the residents and with the staff,” says Denice Davis, RN, MDS coordinator.
Veronica views her role with the utmost importance because it involves human lives.
“You’re not going to fix anything if you don’t care and part of caring is being kind,” Veronica says.
“She really wants to lift residents up so they get everything they need to have the very best life they can have here,” says Jamie.
