After listening to her own advice 10 years ago, Candice decided to find a job serving seniors. In 2006, she joined Eskaton and it’s still one of the best decisions she has made. “We’ve got a good group of residents and staff. You really do get attached,” Candice said. “It’s fun and interesting. There is always something new. You never have the same day twice.”
Candice gets involved. She is an employee wellness representative and Guardian Angel. Two years in a row she proudly wore the chicken costume and led the “Chicken Dance” at the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. She works hard, engaging with family members like Frank (pictured), to raise awareness and money for causes she is passionate about. “All of us at Eskaton Village Grass Valley adore Candice,” said Paige Ryan, Executive Director. “We all join in the fun events that Candice creates.”
In 2017, Candice received the Outstanding Team Member of the Year award from the California Assisted Living Association. Read about her award.
