Eskaton Village Placerville

The nonprofit Eskaton celebrates employees who go above and beyond with a Guardian Angel Program.   Employees receiving five Guardian Angel pins in recognition of their hard work were treated to lunch with Eskaton President and CEO, Todd Murch and President of Eskaton Foundation, Kim Rhinehelder.  Evelyn McGrath, Executive Director at Eskaton Village Placerville is humbled that in 2015 her staff received 27 Guardian Angel pins and she was excited to attend lunch with Christ Nordell, a five time Guardian Angel recipient. 

Grateful residents are thankful for the exceptional care that Eskaton employees provide.  They express their appreciation and recognize an employee, by making a donation in their honor to Eskaton Foundation.  The gifts are reinvested into the Eskaton community to enhance the lives of seniors. 

Christi Nordell is a 5 time Guardian Angel honoree and a very special caregiver at Eskaton Village Placerville.  She is honored to attend lunch, along with eight other five time Guardian Angel recipients from eight Eskaton communities and their Executive Directors. 

Allan and Gladys Hanson of Placerville, honored Christi with her fourth Guardian Angel pin in August of 2015 stating, “She goes well beyond her job description in doing many other things. Always cheerful!”  Shortly after, in October of 2015 Christi was honored with her fifth pin made possible by Harold Gillespie simply stating, “Thank You for all that you do!”
