Addison Pointe Health and Rehabilitation Center in Chesterton is pleased to announce Kristina Derkach as February’s Employee of the Month. Kristina has worked for Addison Pointe for 4 years as an Activates Assistant. She shared, “I am never sitting. I’m always interacting with staff and residents. That is my favorite part!”
According to Kristina, the resident outings that she helps to plan are done on a regular basis to enhance the residents’ quality of life. Outings often include places like Wal-Mart, Fazoli’s, Olive Garden, Cracker Barrel, and Casino trips, as well as visits to the Indiana Dunes and Lighthouse Premium Outlet Mall. In the spring, residents can enjoy a Gary SouthShore RailCat’s Baseball game while in the fall, they take trips to the Potawatomi Zoo in South Bend, County Line Orchard and much more!
Outside of work, Kristina loves to stay moving by boating, skiing, and running. She also loves to play the Violin to her residents and does so on a regular basis. Congratulations Kristina and thanks for all you do!
