WILSONVILLE, Ore. – Livia Thompson, Senior Life Enrichment Director at Avamere at Bethany, received the Enrichment of Life Award from the Oregon Health Care Association.

Thompson has worked at Avamere at Bethany, an independent living, assisted living, and memory care community, for 14 years. She considers residents as an extension of family as she forms personal bonds with them, listens to their stories, and offers activities to help them engage mentally and physically.

Her work is a true example of Avamere’s mission to enhance the life of every person they serve.

“I am truly honored to have a career that I love, and I am so blessed to learn from the best every day,” Thompson said. “My heart is overjoyed at the unexpected recognition. It just increases my drive to continue reaching to learn, grow, and embrace change.”

According to the OHCA, their award recipients demonstrate a commitment to quality care through their dedication to residents, staff, and the community-based care profession.

Thompson earned an OHCA award alongside two other Avamere employees. OHCA recognized Aleksandr Vinokurov, Administrator at Avamere at Sandy, as Administrator of the Year and Melissa Bruce, Vice President of Community-Based Care Clinical Services for Avamere, as Nurse Leader of the Year for CBC.

Their achievements exemplify one of Avamere’s core values: quality that is obvious. Avamere congratulates these team members on this honorable recognition.

Bruce, Thompson, and Vinokurov will be honored at the Annual Convention Awards Luncheon on November 20, 2019 in Portland, Oregon.
