March is a time to recognize our valued staff members at Emporia Presbyterian Manor.
This month we observe National Registered Dietitian Day, Professional Social Workers Month and National Certified Nurses Day. Plus, we have our own employee appreciation events.
We want to highlight a few of our leadership team members for their contributions to residents and their fellow employees.
Registered Dietitian Emily Prouse
Emily is such an asset to our community. She is knowledgeable and passionate about her job as well as our residents.
She connects with them on a professional and personal level, so she can meet their individual dining needs and desires.
Emily is a creative thinker who works well with other members of our dining services team to go above and beyond in her duties.
One of her popular monthly events is a presentation about superfoods, and she shares much more content about food and nutrition that everyone in our community can use.
We are grateful to have Emily on our team at Emporia Presbyterian Manor.

Social Services Director Maria Lane
Maria is our bridge between residents and family members. She is a careful listener who goes the extra mile to understand the needs and desires of residents in our Jones Health Care Center. Maria fields comments, compliments and concerns to be able to relay this information to the rest of the team, allowing us to make improvements when needed.
Maria is always willing to lend a compassionate ear when her co-workers need someone to talk to.
We are lucky to have Maria on our leadership team. We often receive letters and notes lately from family members, thanking our staff for caring for their loved ones. Please take a moment to tell them what they mean to you, too.
