Douglas Earns Employee of the Month

January 13, 2022

      Anne Douglas, LPN, earned the December 2021 Employee of the Month award at Westview Health Care Center. As a Licensed Practical Nurse, Anne is responsible for considering the needs of her patients with precision and passion—and she chooses to include unwavering pleasantness in that pursuit as well. She is well-known among patients, colleagues, and in the community for her kindness at every turn. This expression takes a literal meaning at Westview, where she has worked on all of the nursing wings and on all three daily shifts since her hiring in 2006.

     Anne is a resident of Thompson, CT and a graduate of the Windham Vocational Technical Licensed Practical Nurse Program. Among her favorite recreational activities are cooking, baking and taking long hikes. Anne, her significant other Todd, and her family love to spend time together whenever possible. She is very proud of her “four beautiful, talented children: Elizabeth Douglas, Rebecca Douglas, Riley Douglas, and Sarah Rich. She takes further pride and appreciation for the ways that Westview Health Care Center has played a role in the development of her son’s and daughters’ lives. Particularly, how they learned to work well with others, how to care for individuals receiving skilled nursing care, and what they have learned about food and nutrition.

     Anne’s daughter Sarah and her son-in-law Matthew worked as Certified Nursing Assistants at Westview during their college years. Matthew is now a genetics counselor at Bay State Medical Center and Sarah currently works at Westview as an Occupational Therapist. Her son Riley and daughter Rebecca have worked in Westview’s dietary department as well. Rebecca continues this work in the form of pursuing a degree as a dietician and currently has an internship at Westview. Anne Douglas’ praise towards Westview is profound. She reiterated this point in her remarks when she received this recognition. “I feel humbled and honored to be selected as December’s Employee of the Month. I am fortunate to work with a whole team of dedicated and compassionate people. It is a privilege to be a caregiver and be a part of our patients lives. I am thankful to be able to work side-by-side with all of Westview’s staff,” Anne stated.

     The leadership at Westview in turn values Anne’s contributions to the facility though the years. Administrator, David T. Panteleakos is grateful for the way she brings great nursing skills to their patients and residents; always carrying extra doses of kindness to deliver as needed. “Anne, her compassionate expertise, and her family have contributed considerably to Westview’s delivery of quality care,” stated Mr. Panteleakos. “We are so fortunate to have Anne on our team of amazing caregivers. To see the net effect she has on others is inspiring and truly a benefit to those entrusted to her care. Congratulations to Anne!”
