Celebrating Staff

Employees at 50th anniversary celebration

Goodwin House Employees Make a Difference Every Day!

Our dedicated professionals demonstrate their commitment to excellence in senior care every moment of every day. This diverse group from over 65 countries shows respect to residents, families and each other.

The Ceca Award seeks to improve the resident experience by recognizing and rewarding exceptional caregivers. By celebrating acts of compassion and kindness in our communities, Ceca reinforces the caregiving qualities of empathy, humor, integrity, professionalism, and teamwork important to residents.

The Ceca Award Committee selects one winner per quarter. At the end of the year, all Ceca Award winners are eligible for the Employee of the Year award. It is through their exceptional resident care and personal integrity that continues to distinguish Goodwin House as a premier and dynamic Life Plan Community for older adults. 

Employee Longevity Leads to Steadfast Friendships

Over 17 percent of our employees have been with GHI for more than 10 years and over 8 percent of the staff have worked at GHI for more than 20 years. With that kind of longevity, it is not a surprise that our staff have developed many longstanding relationships with residents and family members.
