Ayers Health and Rehabilitation Center in Trenton was awarded Third Place in FHCA’s 2023 Long Term Care Photo Contest. The winning photo, “Beauty Under the Stars,” was taken by Amber Stanley, Ayers’ Life Enrichment Coordinator (far right).
Amber has served as Ayers’ Life Enrichment Coordinator since October 2022, which launched her long term care career. Amber grew up in the area, however, and spent countless hours volunteering at Ayers for many years prior to getting her start in this role.
The photo was taken during the center’s 2023 Prom Under the Stars, which gave residents an opportunity to dress up, dance and enjoy boutonnieres donated by a volunteer to make for a spectacular evening put on by the staff. “Ms. C. had such a contagious smile and made taking this photo easy,” said Amber.
FHCA made a $200 contribution to Ayers Health and Rehab to contribute toward staff and resident activities. Amber will also receive a $50 Visa gift card for capturing this image.
FHCA’s Long Term Care Photo Contest is open annually to those who live, work, or volunteer in an FHCA member care center or those who work with an FHCA business partner. Nearly 100 photos were entered into this year’s contest, which focused on the theme “The Faces of Care” to recognize the residents, families, staff and volunteers for the positive impact they make on quality care and quality of life.
The winning photos will be displayed during FHCA’s 2023 Annual Conference & Trade Show, July 23-27 at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando. Read more about this year’s Long Term Care Photo Contest, winners and view all the entries by clicking here.
