Higginsville Habilitation Center August 2023 Team Members of the Month. Pictured Back (L to R): Miranda Warren, Assistant Superintendent, Britni Lundberg, Recipient Higginsville MO, and Jodie Burditt, Unit Director
There are so many reasons Britni deserves to be recognized as Team Member of the Month. She is a supportive team member to her peers, she volunteers to work on Campus and HOPE, and the clients love her amongst a million other things that could be mentioned, but for today I want to recognize her for the Memorial Service she put together to mark the anniversary of one of our individuals who passed away. Britni put together a wonderful tribute for our passed individual, by having staff and individuals decorate hats in their memory with a balloon release to remember the spirit of the individual that we lost. Sometimes we can forget that our individuals and fellow co-workers need the space and place to remember our individuals and Britni did such a beautiful job helping the campus remember our friend.
Britini was nominated By Holly Smith SCP

DMH Peer Network officially launches today. The Peer Network is made up of volunteer DMH employees who have been specially trained in Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) to help their fellow coworkers after they’ve had a stressful or traumatic incident at work or in their personal life that impacts their work. At HHC our representative are Kathy Murry, Kandace Perkins, Ashley Thieme and Carmin Duncan.

It's voluntary. You can opt out at any time if a Peer reaches out to offer support.
It’s confidential. Peers don’t keep notes, records or share your info with others. (Except for immediate and serious safety concerns, of course.)
It’s helpful. Peer support has been proven to help the workforce manage stress reactions, improve retention, learn about helpful resources and feel connected in the workplace.
It’s easy to submit a referral. Any DMH employee can submit a referral form for themselves or for someone they work with who might benefit from Peer Support after a critical incident. A Peer will make contact within 48 hours and employees can opt in or opt out to receive the help.

Labor Day is meant to celebrate those people in the United States and Canada that work.

At our facility and so many others, you can’t just close up shop and take the day off.

Our direct care staff, nursing, and dietary staff are front line, hard working, dedicated and oh-so caring. They work everyday of the week and around the clock.

The direct care staff not only meet the needs of our folks, but they make their lives the absolute best they can be. This summer they have gone to conferences, the Lake of the Ozarks, Branson, Caves, Baseball games, Aquariums, and even to California to stick their feet in the sand.

The bond our staff have with our individuals is undeniable. The Labor they put in EVER day is amazing!

“We should be lifting each other up cheering each other on, not trying to outshine one another. The sky would be awfully dark with one star.”
Stop by the break room between HOPE and Crestview and check out the resource center that has been set for employees. This is a living board. Do you have a resource to share with others? Know a good mechanic? An electrician that will make a house call on Christmas Eve in a snow storm? Pin their card on the board! Let's share with each other! Interested in getting a GED? Find the information there! Trouble making ends meet? We have resources for that too! Want to know about the DMH CISM program? You can find that too 🙂 we are here to help you grow or even if you need a hand up!

Happy Kiss & Make Up Day! 🥰 THIS National Day gives us a chance to make amends. Each one of us has had a fight with a loved one at some point in our lives. Whether it is between you and a friend, family member, neighbor or co-worker after time has passed, do you remember the cause? Who was even at fault? Do you want the discord to go on any longer? That is probably the most important question of all. ♥️

Scott does his best every day and is great at training new staff. When the A/C went out in one of the buildings Scott was a huge help with moving everyone and their belongings. Scott is a true team player and has a great sense of humor. He is supportive of co-workers and works hard to assure that the gentlemen on RGW are well taken care of. No matter the situation Scott is always there to help support the Individuals he works with. Scott noticed when an individual was in distress and acted quickly. He provided the Heimlich on the individual and had a successful outcome. Even when things get stressful, Scott always manages to make sure things are getting done and done correctly. Scott is a great worker and deserves to be recognized for all of his hard work.
(Scott was nominated by Cymen Dodson Custodial worker)

During Social Wellness Month in July, break out of your fixed routine and vow to meet new people. ☀️ This is because social wellness is all about your capability to bond with others and build satisfying relationships. ♥️Why is this so important? Well, the fact is, the more people you meet, the more likely you are to develop new hobbies and embark on journeys you never even imagined you would be a part of. You will get to hear new jokes, experiment, go to new places, get involved in new activities, etc. Most importantly, social relationships have a lasting impact on physical health! 😃

July HHC Team Member of the Month Kim Hall. Kim is very energetic, knowledgeable, and cares for the individuals she supports. I came in to work overtime last month and Kim was very helpful in training me on the Group Home 4 guys and also in the dining room. Kim was very patient in answering all my questions that I had while working with her. The relationship she has formed with the Group Home guys really stands out. She passed meds, bathed individuals, and ensured they were all taken care of and safe. It was a pleasure working with Kim Hall.
