Again this year I have opted to not give the Caregiver of the Year Awards that are normally presented in December. Everyone in Home Health Care & Hospice went above and beyond this year; and worthy of these awards. I am so very proud of each and every one of you for stepping up and continuing to serve and meet the needs of others when they needed us the most. During this time we have worked as a team; without skipping a beat. Our staff have put the needs of our patients upfront and foremost.
Using the same scoring system I use for the Caregiver of the Year Awards, this year I am giving a gift card to persons from Home Health & Hospice Field Staff and Office Staff.
