Lake Winona Manor receives Excellence Award (02/23/2006)
Lake Winona Manor's "Make a Wish"¯ program recently earned an Excellence in Practice Award from the Minnesota Health & Housing Alliance (MHHA). The award was presented on February 3 at the organization's annual conference in Minneapolis.

Patti Volkman, director of nursing at Lake Winona Manor, who accepted the award on behalf of the staff, said, "It is a honor that people choose to make their home with us"”whether it's for a short time while they're recuperating from an injury or illness"”or on a more permanent basis. Our staff realizes this, and they are committed to making life better for all our residents."¯

"Our Make a Wish program was developed because we truly want to do something especially meaningful for residents who are at the end of life,"¯ said Mary Miller-Hyland, Lake Winona Manor administrator. "We work together"”staff and families"”to determine what that something meaningful might be."¯

The specific event that led to recognition and ultimately the Excellence in Practice award was planned around a resident's wish to attend a theatre production of the musical, "Annie."¯ Because of an aggressive cancer, the resident wouldn't be able to join her friends on the trip. So Lake Winona Manor staff, along with some volunteers, planned a wine and cheese party and invited the woman's friends. They enjoyed a "girls' night out"¯ complete with a showing of "Annie"¯ on DVD. And to make the occasion even more special, local actresses who had played "Annie,"¯ surprised the resident and her guests with a live performance of "The Sun Will Come Up Tomorrow."¯
