Tribute at the Glen, an assisted living and memory care community, celebrated its first “Team Member of the Month.” The award recognizes one staff member each month for going above and beyond their normal duties and excellent service to Tribute residents.

The first winner of the award, for the month of July, was Rosalita Howard, Tribute’s Dining Room Manager. Howard was recognized for her excellent service as well as for her compassion and caring nature for the residents. For her, it is not just a job, “it’s a ministry for me.”

Tribute’s President Kimberly Smith said, “There is no cry for help that is too big or too small for Rosalita. She comes to work each day and goes above and beyond to serve Elders. It is truly a pleasure to work alongside someone as amazing as Rosalita.”

“Tribute doesn’t believe in hiring people, we select them,” said Mark Frazier, Tribute’s Community Relations Director. “The difference is we find people with an amazing head-heart alignment that match our values of building meaningful, purposeful relationships with our residents first and foremost. Our first team member of the month was someone that embodied our community’s values. A lot of our team members do a great job providing residents with excellent service, but our Dining Room Supervisor, Rosalita, has the secret sauce (no pun intended).”

Frazier continues, “Rosalita loves our residents deeply and sees them for who they are, treasuring the potential each resident brings to us. At Tribute at the Glen, we believe that if you have air in your lungs, you’re worth of life of purpose and you have a ton of potential. Rosalita lives this value in her daily life and we’re honored to serve our residents every day alongside her.”

Tribute at The Glen, which opened in January 2017, offers assisted living and memory care. The senior living community blends detailed luxury with care, safety and a high quality of life. The entire building is saturated with WiFi so team members can communicate and families can access the Internet when visiting. For more information, visit
