The Employee Giving Campaign is a fundraising effort that gives employees the opportunity to contribute to the Knute Nelson Foundation. 

It's because of their generosity that Nelson Gables was able to purchase a new Sit-to-Stand lift.

The new lift will greatly benefit both residents and staff- it will provide a safer experience for residents and it will also provide a lightened load for staff. In addition, our staff is able to provide more efficient cares and respond promptly to call lights.

Contributions from the Employee Giving Campaign also enabled Knute Nelson Home Care to purchase and is to offer Cognitive Performance Testing.

Our team of occupational therapists is now equipped with tools to provide a standardized and objective test for our home care patients.

With results, Knute Nelson Home Care is able to provide concrete recommendation for each patient on recommended daily activities and assistance based on their cognitive level. In addition, test results can help determine whether a patient is in a safe living environment and what changes need to take place to ensure optimal safety to remain in home”

Knute Nelson Home Care is the only local agency to offer this service and will really help our organization to stand out! 

On behalf of the Knute Nelson Foundation and organization, thank you to all employees who support the Employee Giving Campaign, you are furthering our mission of enriching the lives of everyone we serve.
