2018 Caregiver Award Winner – Miguel Burgos

“Miguel Burgos has been a care partner at Artis Senior Living of Evesham since we opened 2 years ago showing his  commitment to our community and philosophy of care….  Miguel can be seen in the community dancing in order to provide care for our residents or assist them in moving from one room to another.  There are some residents that gravitate toward him and he will include them in his current task whether it be completing rounds or helping him set the table for dinner.  He finds ways to engage with the residents and build meaningful relationships through a simple hug or conversation.  Our residents light up when they see him.  He has a smiley face sticker on his name tag and tells the residents don’t worry about remembering my name just call me Mr. Smile!…. He makes a difference in our community and we are so grateful to have him.
