Diana Goodman of ElderCare Resources Honored with SPIN Award
Eugene, OR – The Senior Provider Information Network of Lane County (SPIN) honored Diana Goodman and Letty Morgan with their SPIN Award at their recent monthly meeting at the Campbell Community Center in Eugene. The annual award, presented since 2009, was the brainchild of Nancy Koll, ElderHealth & Living, and honors someone who has made a significant contribution to our professional community in service to seniors and persons with disabilities.
Diana Goodman and Letty Morgan were pleasantly surprised by their SPIN Awards.
Goodman and Morgan were the founders in 1990 of the business model that is now ElderCare Resources, Inc. Claudia Norton, Manager, Willamette Oaks, and SPIN Board Co-chair, presented the award recognizing Goodman and Morgan for their service to elderly and disabled persons and their mentoring of other local elder professionals. Goodman commented, “It’s the personal relationships and a commitment to, hopefully improving the quality of one’s life that provide me with a purpose.” Morgan added, “Twenty five years ago, when we founded ERI (on Labor Day!), I’m not sure we could have envisioned what a tremendous resource ‘we’ could be, and would become.”
The mission of SPIN is to provide education, information, and networking opportunities to professionals of Lane County so they can better serve seniors and people with disabilities. The group has been meeting in its current format since 2004.
Previous SPIN Award honorees include Carolyn St. Clair, RN, Care Coordinator, Frank Hales, retired Director of the Cascade Coast Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, Barbara Passarelli, Fiduciary Aide, ElderCare Resources, Inc., Lauren Holland, Judge, Lane County Circuit Court, Jo Schecter, Northwest Boomer & Senior News and Lifestream Celebrations, Nancy Koll, Administrator/CFO, ElderHealth & Living, and Jennifer Saunders, RN, New Horizons In-Home Care.
