Congratulations to Elijah Reid for being selected the Opengate Employee of the Month.
We are happy to announce the July Employee of the Month at Opengate, Elijah Reid, Direct Support Professional (DSP) from Auerbach. Elijah was nominated and recognized for the quality of support and compassion he displays towards the individuals we serve. Elijah exemplifies the agency’s mission by acknowledging that each person has the right to be treated with fairness and respect, by serving with passion to make sure the individuals he supports receive the best care possible. He’s always committed to provide higher quality of care and is someone we can always count on.
In late July, Elijah was assigned to support an individual, who at the time was very emotional and experiencing an extremely challenging behavior. Without hesitation Elijah persuaded the individual to rest on a floor mat while Elijah massaged the person’s back with efforts to decrease the their anguish, a goal he successfully achieved.
Elijah, thank you for all that you do with the individuals we serve. This recognition is well-deserved.
