Top honor for Flushing House residency director

The New York Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (NYAHSA) 2010 Employee of Distinction Award was given to the residency director of Flushing House.
Nancy Rojas was one of 18 to be recognized for “their extraordinary dedication to serving older adults.”
Rojas considers herself more an advocate for older adults than a salesperson. She builds relationships of trust with prospects and family, listening carefully to find out if Flushing House would be a “good fit” for each older adult. Her goal is to help older adults remain active and independent for as long as possible. During her nine years as a member of marketing, she was responsible for helping over 500 seniors become residents of Flushing House.
NYAHSA Interim President Daniel Heim attended the ceremony and presented the award to Rojas. Also present was president of Flushing House, Rev. Douglas Kurtz, who earlier this year submitted her name in nomination for the award.
Members of the New York State Legislature, state regulatory agencies and advocacy agencies, plus other groups, served on the awards committee to review the nominations.
Built in 1974, Flushing House is the largest not-for-profit, independent living retirement residence in New York State. For more information, visit www.flushinghouse.com.
