Burien Nursing & Rehab Names Nichole Casado Director of Community Relations
Advertiser and friend of the blog Burien Nursing and Rehabilitation has named Nichole Casado Director of Community Relations.
Ms. Casado, who has 15 years experience in the long term care industry, will be the liaison between doctors, hospital staff, community outreach organizations and Burien Nursing and Rehabilitation.
“On behalf of the employees at Burien Nursing and Rehabilitation Center we welcome Nichole to the position of Director of Community Relations. Her life experience as well as work experience make her perfect for the job,” said Lynda Baldwin, Administrator at Burien Nursing and Rehabilitation.
“Nichole is engaging and will challenge a great nursing home to become greater. We have the Five Star rating from Medicare and good customer service. We can do better though! She’s just the person to get our facility to that next level of customer service,” Baldwin said.
Before joining Burien Nursing and Rehabilitation, Nichole was awarded the Active Living Award twice for program development at Merrill Gardens. She has specialty training in Alzheimers and Dementia care gained during her four years working at Expression of Enumclaw.
In 2007 the Alzheimers Association of America nominated Nichole for Caregiver of the Year. Nichole worked at Evergreen Nursing and Rehabilitation from 1996-2000. During her time there she directed several community outreach programs, the most touching being a challenge to secure all wedding and reception essentials for a 25 year-old terminal brain cancer patient all through donations. The campaign was such a success that a lavish union was planned complete with two nurse-escorted honeymoons.
Nichole is excited to be joining the team at Burien Nursing and Rehabilitation as they finish their remodel. A community celebration and open house will be held in January.
Nichole and her partner live on Alki beach and have a small organic farm in Columbia City where they raise their four children.
