Organization: Villagio at Capriana
What role does your nominee have in senior care and senior care issues?
Jason Mendoza worked his way through LVN school by being an EMT. His experience as an EMT taught him to be observant, and really listen for cues from the people he came in contact with. After he became an LVN about 2 years ago, he was interviewed by the team at Villagio and was hired right away. In fact, his director, Yutta, said she, "really hit the jackpot" when she hired him. He's a hard worker, dedicated husband, and he loves country music!
Why should this person be nominated
The words that keep coming up when people are asked to describe Jason are caring, reliable, dedicated, knowledgeable, positive and passionate. He is patient with his residents, which are comprised completely of dementia sufferers, and he is kind and compassionate with the families.
