Heinzerling Community is pleased to announce
Join us for an amazing evening of fun and fellowship. The Off The Wall gala is Heinzerling community’s premier fundraising event. We offer participants an opportunity to learn about Heinzerling Community while enjoying a silent and live auction, and eclectic food. During this event, Heinzerling resident artwork is displayed and put up for auction. These are one-of-a-kind, beautiful works of art that are made with the passion and enthusiasm of our residents and their care givers. In addition, the auction includes a variety of leisure-type items and experiences.
Proceeds from Off The Wall go directly to support the social, educational and community experiences for Heinzerling residents. This includes participation in more than 250 field trips each year, special onsite performing artist shows, assistive communication devices, therapy equipment, and personal care items.
The staff on unit one recognize Ryley Bushong, Habilitation Specialist, as an integral part of the team. Ryley goes above and beyond in her care of the staff and the residents and is always willing to lend a helping hand. Most recently a long time resident was hospitalized and Ryley voluntarily stayed the night at the hospital to ensure she was not alone. The unit one staff want to commend and thank Ryley for everything she does to uphold the mission of Heinzerling “A legacy of caring”. The unit one team appreciates Ryley and her dedication to all the residents.
Congratulations to Katie Gerken, HDC Recruiter, for earning her Society for Human Resource Management SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) certification in February 2018. Earning the SHRM-CP certification involves significant course study and an examination in the areas of employment law and implementation of policies and strategies. The SHRM-CP is designed for HR professionals that serve as a point of contact for staff and stakeholders, deliver HR services and perform operational HR functions. The SHRM-CP requires continuous education to maintain. Heinzerling Community is very proud of Katie for this accomplishment!
