Darryl Golliday

Darryl Golliday

Position: Chef

Organization: Americana Getaway Senior Day Services


What role does your nominee have in senior care and senior care issues?
Darryl has worked as a Chef for the last 35 years! for 15 years to present he has worked in programs with Seniors.

Why should this person be nominated
Darryl cooks and serves really great food and for the male members mostly that is the reason to come to a senior day service program! Darryl can also be seen everyday sitting among our members and staff having lunch and with the members delight has joined in on a music or exercise program. Most of our members have cognitive decline and may share a story that they have told before. Darryl always listens like he is hearing this for the first time and with genuine interest! I have attached a picture of him with a member who raves about Darryl to his family calling him "The Chef" and his "Best Friend". I truly believe he is a special person with the biggest smile!
