The state’s largest organization representing long-term care facilities has honored a Loudonville, Ohio woman as its December 2012 “Hero of Long-Term Care.”
Katie Stull, Facility Records Coordinator at Jac-Lin Manor, Loudonville, was selected by the Ohio Health Care Association (OHCA) as its Hero of Long-Term Care for the month of December, 2012. The organization chooses one long-term care employee each month to honor for their service to long-term caregivers, residents and the community.
Stull will be honored at the Association’s 2013 Annual Convention in Columbus, and will be featured on the OHCA website during the month of December.
Burt MacQueen, LNHA, Administrator at Jac-Lin Manor, says that Stull is passionate about serving the facility’s residents and the community.
“We can always count on Katie, and so can everyone else,” said MacQueen. “I think she’s used to multi-tasking because she has 3 young sons!”
Stull has worked for Jac-Lin Manor, an intermediate care facility for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, for more than 9 years. 1 1/2 years ago she accepted the role of facility records coordinator, transitioning from habilitation assistant.
“Her knowledge of programming really helps as she began typing for the QMRPs (qualified mental retardation professionals) who are writing the program,” said MacQueen. “Katie receives all the information and puts the individual habilitation plan together, all in a timely and correct fashion.”
Within the community where she has spent her life, Stull coaches little league and is a board member of the Perrysville Youth Association, as well as other community organizations. Her life revolves around her husband, 3 boys and the rest of her family.
“She never says ‘that’s not my job,’ and always steps in as she sees the need. Having worked as an aide, she has a wonderful relationship with all the residents,” MacQueen added. “They really like her, and that says a lot – She’s a well-rounded, good gal and our hero!”
Jac-Lin Manor is a 32-resident intermediate care facility for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The facility is located at 695 S Mount Vernon Ave, Loudonville, OH 44842, 419-994-5700.
