Alberta Anselment named District Caregiver of the Year

Saint Paul – (February 13, 2023) – Alberta Anselment, a registered nurse at the Minnesota Veterans Home in Silver Bay, MN, was recently honored by LeadingAge Minnesota with the District B Caregiver of the Year Award.

The District Caregiver of the Year Award honors individuals in older adult services who demonstrate exceptional commitment to older adults and enhance and enrich the quality of life of those in their care. Anselment was one of six caregivers selected for the regional award out of a field of 60,000 professional caregivers throughout the state.

“Alberta not only provides exceptional care in her role as an RN, but she also goes above and beyond to make residents feel this is their home,” says Chris Johansen, Assistant Director of Nursing, MN Veterans Home – Silver Bay, MN. “As an example, Alberta was a chef prior to becoming a nurse. So now she sometimes plans dining activities with the Recreation staff to share foods from her Asian culture.

She wears her white uniform, including her chef hat, to prepare and serve the meal to residents and staff. Overall, Alberta provides a sense of warmth, calmness, professionalism, and positive energy to those she works with and serves.”

LeadingAge Minnesota honored Alberta and other Caregivers of the Year at its Institute & Expo, the state’s largest and most comprehensive aging services conference. Nearly 3,000 professionals in all aspects of older adult services attend the annual three-day event to learn about new and innovative programs, share best practices and network with their peers.
