Middlewoods of Farmington Wins Connecticut Assisted Living Association Award for Outstanding Resident Service


Middlewoods of Farmington Wins Connecticut Assisted Living Association Award(Farmington, CT) June 30, 2015 - Middlewoods of Farmington is once again the proud recipient of a Connecticut Assisted Living Association Award (CALA) for outstanding resident service.

Chef Manager, Loretta Ward was honored at CALA’s Annual Resident Service Awards held at The Water’s Edge Resort and Spa in Westbrook on Friday, June 19th.

Loretta Ward, having worked at Middlewoods of Newington since 2004 and now at Middlewoods of Farmington since January of this year, has taken the opportunity to make a real difference in both buildings.

She has a personal mantra, “whatever is best for the residents” and she lives this mantra far past her duties as Chef Manager.  She was nominated for the many ways she makes a true difference in the lives of the residents she serves and the staff she works side by side with – setting the tone and being a living example of the mission, vision and values of the organization.

Middlewoods of Farmington is located at 509 Middle Road in Farmington and offers independent and assisted living with a long tradition of award-winning care and service. The community is owned and operated by UMH, a local, mission-based, not-for-profit organization based in Shelton, Connecticut.  For more information about the community or to schedule a tour, please contact Katie Mauriello at 860.284.5700 or visit www.middlewoodsoffarmington.org.
