Ocean Park celebrates 12th anniversary

 Ocean Park Memory Care Community, on Parkview Drive in Brookings, celebrated its 12th anniversary with great fanfare in the month of August.  

The biggest highlight of the celebration was employee recognition. Several employees were honored. Compassion, motivation, dedication, attitude and loyalty were some of the main categories on which the employees were judged.

The Most Improved Care Giver award went to Leanna Grubbs. Autumn Niedorf, the assistant administrator, was recognized for her Administrative Leadership.

The Employee of the Year award created the most excitement. There were four finalists. Dana Maciel, R.N. and administrative team leader, handed out the awards. Fourth place went to Letitia Taylor. Besides her warm, happy and friendly personality, she was recognized for her pivotal role on the night shift. Third place winner, Angela Wilkins, was recognized for her leadership and exemplary performance on the morning shift. The runner up, Alexandria Silcox, was recognized for her versatility, hard work, dependability and her willingness to go beyond the call of duty.

Celeste Jerue was chosen as the Employee of the Year.  As the Administrative Team coordinator, Celeste is the “grease for Ocean Park’s wheels, keeping everything moving in the right direction.” She is also “the glue that holds everything together.”

Jerue and Silcox were awarded a one-week, all expense paid trip to Hawaii.

Ocean Park is a 55-bed residential care level II facility designed for the care of those afflicted with different forms of dementia. See www.oceanparkinc.com, or call 541-469-6817 for more information.

  • Banks to increase base salaries by under three percent in 2015: survey
    Global banks expect to increase base salaries by less than 3 percent this year and most are not planning to overhaul their pay structure in the face of tougher European Union rules on bonuses, a survey reported on Thursday. Salary increases across banks, insurers and other financial services firms are expected to be between 5-8 percent in emerging markets, 2-3 percent in North America and 1.5-2 percent in Europe, according to a survey of 63 firms by consulting firm Mercer. The survey showed 40 percent of banks had last year introduced role-based allowances (typically 12 monthly payments that are set at the start of the year but not counted as basic pay by banks) in response to a new European Union law capping bonuses at 200 percent of salary, and an additional 10 percent were planning to introduce them. The European Banking Authority (EBA) said in October the role-based allowances counted as variable pay, so banks needed to adapt rules again, but Mercer said its survey showed very few firms were planning to eliminate them.
