Spotlight on Care

Whatever It Takes And Then Some Award

Arlane Howell, assistant director of nursing at Life Care Center of Tullahoma, Tennessee, received Life Care Centers of America’s 2012 Eastern Division Whatever It Takes And Then Some Award for her devotion to customer service and extraordinary kindness. Howell’s dedication to her facility’s residents and patients extends beyond her job. She has thrown birthday parties for residents, purchased clothing for residents who had no means to buy new clothes and even purchased a bicycle for a resident’s son after the boy’s bike was stolen.

Her story is just one of many tales of exceptional customer service and care found throughout our nursing homes and rehabilitation centers.
