Binder then went on to win the top honors throughout the whole company, to be declared ASC Employee of the Year. Arbor Grove Village Director of Marketing and Admissions Brentley Smith said Georgia is very well-liked by all the staff and residents and many believe she genuinely deserves the honor.
“I love giving and I do a lot of it,” Binder said. “It’s strange to be on the other end.”
Georgia was given her award at a recent banquet in her honor September 30. She received a voucher for a vacation for two to a location of her choice. Binder said she and her husband haven’t decided where they will go, but they want to travel to somewhere they’ve never been. In addition to the trip, Georgia was gifted a cash prize, $200 of which she has already donated to the Alzheimer’s Association to assist with their research efforts.
When asked what her favorite part of the job was, Georgia said, “Making people smile.”
She added that most of the time, he job doesn’t feel like work to her. She genuinely enjoys caring for the residents at Arbor Grove Village. To her, work means going into someone’s home and making sure they not only have all their physical needs met, but also ensuring that each day includes a smile.
“It’s not my workplace, it’s their home and they invite me in every day,” Georgia said.
