Ketchikan Pioneer Home Employee Success Story
The Ketchikan Pioneer Home has recently celebrated a particularly sweet success with one of their very own certified nurse aides (CNA).

Last year the Ketchikan Pioneer Home worked with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) to employ a new team member that was receiving services through DVR. Roberta Blair was living in transitional housing and is legally blind. Although some did not see an opportunity for Roberta at the Ketchikan Pioneer Home, Administrator Julie Sande saw the potential in employing her.

Roberta has not only grown to be a successful member of the team but is loved and adored by elders and staff alike. She has completed the certified nurse aide training and has become a full time CNA at the Ketchikan Pioneer Home.

For further details on Roberta Blair’s story, check out this letter written by the Ketchikan Pioneer Home Administrator Julie Sande to her counterpart at the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.
