Lori has raised four wonderful boys, and she loves spending time with her seven grandbabies when she is not at work.



Nicole Ornouski
2020 Employee of the Year
Gables Care Center

Nearly 11 years ago, a young woman decided she wanted to begin her health care career journey at Gables Care Center. She planned to become an STNA, so she enrolled in Gables’ Nurse Aide Training and Competency Program.

This was the start of something special. She completed the program and officially became an STNA in July 2010. Nicole was a truly amazing care team member over the next 8 years.  

She decided in 2018 to take an important next step in her career — to become a Licensed Practical Nurse. She went to nursing school while continuing as an STNA at Gables. Upon successfully completing nursing school and passing her state boards, Nicole proudly transitioned to the equally impressive Gables Care Center professional nurses’ team.

Nicole continues to amaze with her clinical skills and caring approach to our residents, while also drawing praise from her peers and supervisors. They say she’s “always willing to help,” “extremely dependable,” “caring and compassionate,” and “a truly special person”. Nicole is a proud resident of Hopedale, Ohio, where she resides with her husband, Bernie.

It is with a great deal of pleasure that Gables Care Center presents Nicole as our Gables Care Center 2020 Employee of the Year.

Alicen has been with us for a year, first in Activities and then as an Aide. She goes above and beyond. She spends time with residents on her days off and works overtime when we need extra help. She feels our residents deserve to have staff who care for their wants and needs.

With special activities such as a “spa day,” Alicen has been known to plan special days on her days off. She helps with transports for doctor appointments as well as resident’s shopping. Alicen jumps in wherever she is needed, including the kitchen and housekeeping. She sits to listen to residents and tries to fix any problems. There were times in the past year when she was working 15-16 hours a day to make sure residents were getting what they needed.

Alicen gets along with all of her colleagues and promotes our community every chance she gets. Her mother also used to work at Sunnyslope until diagnosed with cancer. Alicen became her mother’s primary caregiver, and her mother is now in remission. Alicen enjoys making jewelry and gifting it to residents and co-workers. She also loves spending time with her children.

Timi is the embodiment of our Values at work. Timi is a leader and one of the first caregivers who trains new staff. Respect is very evident in the way she communicates with our office and with whomever she interacts.

Timi’s compassion can be seen in the little things, from taking an extra minute or two to make sure a client has a fresh glass of water before she leaves her shift to helping someone figure out a new cell phone or remote control. Gratitude can be found in Timi through her quick smile and a “thank you.”

Bernsen Named to OCHCH Board of Directors

Bernsen Named to OCHCH Board of Directors  

 

COLUMBUS, Ohio                                         

Capital Health Care Network is pleased to announce that Kara Bernsen, Chief of Network Services, has been named to the Ohio Council for Home Care & Hospice Board of Directors.  OCHCH was founded in 1965 and is continually evolving to maintain its most basic purpose of working on behalf of home care providers so more people can receive care at home. 

Older adults have always played an important role in Kara’s life, having grown up assisting her parents, Bob and Lynne Huff, who owned and operated several nursing homes and home health care agencies in Ohio.  It was only fitting that Kara would continue her efforts in the health care field as a physical therapist.   For the past 22 years, Kara has worked with Capital Health Care Network, most recently in the role of Chief of Network Services.  She was the COO of Capital Health’s Award Winning Home Care and Hospice division for many years. 

Kara states “I am honored to represent Capital Health Care Network as a board member for the Ohio Council for Home Care and Hospice.  I look forward to making a positive contribution in my role and becoming acquainted with this talented group of professionals.”
