The Ceca Award is given to caregivers who best exemplify the qualities of empathy, humor, integrity, professionalism and teamwork in treating patient-residents — qualities valued by patient-residents and fellow caregivers alike.
Ceca’s program centers on a contest designed to recognize, celebrate and reward caregivers who have been nominated by co-workers for exceptional patient-resident care. Ceca’s online peer-to-peer recognition system makes frequent, meaningful recognition easy for co-workers. Staff participate by making nominations through Ceca’s website. A caregiver who is moved to recognize a fellow co-worker logs-on to the system and clicks on a button to give recognition. This automatically nominates the recipient for the Ceca Award, and nominations are then posted on the “Nomination Wall” for everyone to see. Aside from the genuine respect and positive recognition from peers and patient-residents, monthly or quarterly honorees additionally receive a $250 prize.
Together with patients and their families, Ceca seeks to celebrate and thank caregivers for their outstanding work.
