Eskaton driver stands up for the disabled

Posted by Eskaton on May 8, 2015 5:44:43 AM

Linda Neal, Residents Services Director at Eskaton Village Carmichael, received this letter about our driver, Cindee Burns, noting that persistence does pay off:

I was so terribly proud of Cindee Burns on Thursday, April 30th. She attempted to park the medical transport van outside Sutter Hospital downtown and was prevented from doing that by a parking attendant. Cindee was very firm, but professional in standing up for Eskaton and the disabled, as she had a 102 year old wheelchair patient to pick up. Because of Cindee’s sincere persistence, the parking attendant’s supervisor agreed with her reasoning and we were allowed to park outside the hospital, rather than 1 ½ blocks away.

Way to go, Cindee! We appreciate how you look out for the comfort and safety of our residents.
