RICHMOND, IN (September 27, 2022) – The Leland Legacy has been recognized by the Indiana Assisted Living Association (INALA) as the Assisted Living Community of the Year for 2022. The annual award honors the “assisted living community that has gone above and beyond with care for both their residents and the community.”
“Our staff’s commitment to the residents and their families has been nothing but impressive,” says Amanda Marquis, Executive Director. “The positive impact they make inside and outside of our building is a true testament of each member of our staff. Our focus has always been to deliver top-notch care to our residents all the while giving them an opportunity to live life to the fullest.” The Leland has had deficiency-free surveys for the last five years.
An embodiment of that dedication is the recognition of Ron Cupp, Maintenance Supervisor, as the INALA Caregiver of the Year. The award honors the “hard-working employee who has enriched residents’ daily lives.” While caregiver may not come to mind when discussing maintenance, Ron continues to go above and beyond for the Leland residents and staff. Organizing outings for the residents, helping through inclement weather, leading efforts such as the community banners on top of the building or vegetable gardens for the residents. Ron takes every step to make life at the Leland joyful and worry free for all.
In addition to awards presented to The Leland Legacy, Dr. Brad Barrett, House Representative District 56, was nominated by The Leland Legacy and honored by INALA as the Legislator of the Year. This award honors the legislator who “has shown exemplary service to the field of aging,” Dr. Barrett has made it a point to tour the Leland and other assisted living/nursing homes in the county to learn firsthand about the challenges facing senior care facilities. Dr. Barrett continues to have conversations with stakeholders to give a voice to seniors in our district at the state level.
