The National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) today announced the 2014 honorees of its NCAL Awards Program. The program recognizes assisted living employees from around the country who demonstrate exemplary work within the profession.

“These four individuals represent the best of assisted living and the inspiring work that goes on in our communities every day,” said NCAL Executive Director Dave Kyllo. “NCAL is honored to award such dedicated professionals who exemplify what it means to provide person-centered care.”

This year, the Administrator of the Year was awarded to Jean Cannon at Aspen House Memory Care Assisted Living in Loveland, Colorado.

Jean Cannon was named the 2013 Administrator of the Year by the Colorado Health Care Association and is a champion for providing person-centered care to individuals living with dementia.
