Afia has served in the health care field for 18 years, coming to Hospice of Dayton in 2009 and being named PCS Excellence Mentor in 2012. She serves as a member of the Performance Improvement team.
Coming to Hospice was always what I wanted to do. It was the best way for me to make a positive impact, to assist in the final days, weeks, or month of someone’s life. I am honored to become a part of a family of people who look to me for answers and compassion. It makes me feel I’m doing an angel’s work.
Following the mission of Hospice of Dayton, I celebrate the lives of patients and families. I’m always looking for new ways communicate with my patients, who may not be able to see or hear – sometimes through touch or sound,
through singing and prayer. I offer my assistance with whatever the need may be with staff at every facility I enter, always with a friendly, caring smile. I’m often complimented for my makeup. One patient always asked if was I going somewhere special. I would say “I’m coming to see you.”
