Brian Colleran Celebrates Akron Nurse for Excellent Caregiving


January 26, 2018

Nursing Home Developer, Brian Colleran, is proudly recognizing an Akron Licensed Practical Nurse for her commitment to resident satisfaction. Michelle Sanders, an LPN at Hickory Ridge Nursing and Rehab Center, a 170 bed, skilled nursing facility located in Akron, Ohio.

Michelle Sanders graduated from Cuyahoga Falls High School in 1989, studied towards a business management degree at the University of Akron, married in 1998 and has 3 children. She started her own small business to enable her to remain at home during the day with her 3 young children. After the unexpected death of her husband, nine years later she returned to school and graduated from the Akron School of Practical Nursing in 2012 as an LPN.

Upon graduation Michelle’s first job was at Hickory Ridge Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Akron and she immediately knew this is what she meant to do. She received the New Nurse of the Year award several months later.

Hickory Ridge Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is a 170 bed home that sits along the Tow Path trail in Akron, OH. The facility has two secured units, a behavioral unit and an Alzheimer’s unit. Michelle is now assigned to the behavioral hall and enjoys the daily challenges, always putting her residents first. Her empathy for each of her residents and passion to help others keeps her focused on making a difference. Michelle loves to bring a little happiness to her residents and plans special activities, schedules movie days, celebrates their birthdays with gifts and decorations as well as on all the major holidays.

Thank you Michelle for your excellent care and love you provide to each resident and family member. You are truly a blessing!
