Park Springs Raises Money for Employees

Park Springs, a continuing care retirement community in Stone Mountain, Georgia, has a strict no tip clause on campus. While the policy saves Members the hassle and stress often associated with tipping, the fund also makes it hard to show appreciation for all of the Park Springs staff’s hard work.

Monetary donations are only distributed to hourly employees and payments depend on the longevity of the employee’s tenure and salary. Last year, the average payout was $685.81. The maximum payout was $1,260. Members distribute the money each year shortly before Thanksgiving at an Employee Appreciation luncheon.

Peachtree Hills PlaceFor most seniors 81 means long walks, enjoying a good book, and making trips to visit grandchildren. While Pat Kichline does enjoy all of those activities, the 81 year old Atlanta native loves his work too much to retire.

Peachtree Hills Place was the perfect fit for the Kichlines. The couple loved the dining facilities that were done by famous chef, Paul Abrecht.
