Tammy Logan, lead caregiver for Belmont Village Senior Living, has been named a 2022 Frontline Honors honoree by Senior Housing News.
To become a Frontline Honoree, an individual is nominated by their peers. The candidate must be a dedicated, high-performing frontline worker who delivers exceptional experiences and outcomes; a passionate worker who knows how to put their vision into action for the good of seniors and aging industry professionals; and an advocate for seniors, their industry, and their peers.
Senior Housing News caught up with Logan to discuss their time in the senior housing industry.
SHN: What drew you to the Senior Housing industry?
Logan: After taking care of and losing my mother and mother in law, I wanted to learn about and be a part of caring for the elderly. Also seeing my best friend’s parents in a facility, I saw that I wanted to make a difference in senior living.
What’s your biggest lesson learned since starting to work in the industry?
I have learned that you have to have a lot of compassion and patience working in this industry, but it is so worth it.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part of my job is interacting with the residents. I love talking to and learning about them. I feel so good when I make someone smile or brighten their day.
What do you want society (or the general public) to know about your job?
I would like for society to know that it is so fulfilling and rewarding when you are working with the elderly. There is such a need for caregivers. It does brighten my day to see the residents daily.
What may be one thing leaders don’t know, that you wish they universally knew, about your job?
That all elders are due all the respect that we as society can offer.
