MATTOON -- Certified nursing assistant Amanda Cavazos has been honored as employee of the month for February Mattoon Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center.
Cavazos said working as a certified nursing assistant at the center, 2121 S. Ninth St., has shown her what the words 'humble' and 'grateful' really mean.
"Each day I walk into work where I get to make a difference and help my residents, whether that’s helping them do things they once could do and now can’t or even just by being someone to talk to and putting a smile on their face. At the end of the day, knowing I’ve cared for and helped my loving residents to the best of my ability is what keeps me going,” Cavazos said.
Mattoon Rehabilitation and Healthcare reported that Cavazos is a team player and a great asset to the operation there. She was voted employee of the month by her peers.
