housekeeping role at Revera’s The Beechwood
retirement community in Mississauga, Ont., and
hasn’t looked back since.
“She is a star here not only because she is great
at what she does, but because she is so caring
and compassionate,” says Maria Mercone,
Executive Director at The Beechwood.

exceptional customer service is all about people.

Alicja is a firm believer in the power of a cheerful
attitude. “Smiling is the first impression people
have, and it’s the number one way to solve any
problem,” says Alicja.
She says the connections she has made at The
Beechwood hold a special place in her heart. “I
am treated like family by many people here,” she
says with pride. “I am so blessed.”
