Join us in recognizing Julie Cole’s heroic work

Clay Center Presbyterian Manor's former executive director, Christian Gilbert, nominated Julie Cole as a Presbyterian Manor Hero.

The recognition is due to Julie’s increased involvement with resident activities and her dedication to providing additional spiritual and emotional support during COVID-19. Julie has stepped up and participated in daily hallway exercises with our residents and even leads the activity when our activities director is not available.

The residents have really enjoyed the part of daily exercises where Julie touches her toes, and have commented that they have seen "a lot of improvement in her flexibility.” Julie also took it upon herself to play the piano and record the residents’ favorite hymns so they can have "Hallway Hallelujah" on Thursdays. This has become a staff favorite as well, and the music is uplifting to anyone who is within earshot.

Julie has been with Presbyterian Manor for 16 years and serves as our medical records specialist. Fun fact: Julie started in health care as a senior in high school when she, her sister and her mother all worked together at Washington Homestead.

Thank you, Julie, for all you do. We are better because you are here!
