Woodbridge Office Grand Opening!
On Thursday, August 26th we were fortunate enough to celebrate our expansion with clients, caregivers, and friends at our new office location in Woodbridge! Though we have fond memories of the West Haven office, we are eager to see where this next phase in our business will take us!
The evening began with hor d'oeuvres and aperitif catered by Quail & Ale. Following the ceremonial ribbon cutting Founder & Geriatric Care Manager, Sandra Salmon made a speech acknowledging the village that has helped get Opal Stork Home Care to this point thus far, "Our motto is care, compassion, and commitment because it embodies how I feel about everyone in this room. I'm committed to my friends, family, and now, Opal Stork Home Care. I love you all and thank-you for coming."
After the speech we presented Novadine Williams with our Caregiver of the Quarter award, an award that highlights 4 Opal Stork Caregivers a year for their commitment in providing compassionate care to the clients in their charge. A veteran caregiver of 11-years, Novadine is approaching her second year with our agency. Every where she is placed, clients and their families cannot gush enough about Novadine. It was a unanimous decision to present Novadine with this award, and we are honored to have a woman as intelligent and delightful as her to work for our agency.
An Employee Recognition Award was also presented to Opal Stork Home Care Office Manager, Crystal McKenzie. As we were short-staffed during the majority of the summer, Crystal really stepped up and took charge. She really honed her role as a leader of this agency and went above and beyond for clients, caregivers, and staff as we transitioned to the new office. She is a joy to everyone that encounters her and we are thankful to have her in the office.
Throughout the event, we were honored to have representatives from The Narrative Project, there to capture the entire night! With this new office space, we will continue to provide care, compassion, and commitment to our constituents. We are so appreciative of the clients that entrust us with their care and our employees who provide the best care. We look forward to using this new space as a catalyst to become the leading home care agency of quality in the state of Connecticut,
