Outstanding members of the Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton staff are recognized every quarter with our Bouquet of Recognition Awards. Sheri Mothersole is one of our newest recipients of the Sunflower Award.
Sheri was nominated by the family member of one of our patients. “On more than one occasion Sheri Mothersole provided her aide skills,” her nomination reads. “It was evident from the get-go that Sheri cared about giving excellent physical and emotional care. Addressing the positional needs, cleansing needs and auditory needs offered proof of Sheri’s caring, giving heart.”
When the patient passed, “Sheri assisted in dressing her at the time of her passing… Sheri allowed for my assistance in moving the patient upon her final vehicle of transport to the hearse. Sheri walked with me and with the patient, not as a job, but as a knowing comfort in the time of a heart’s need. Words are words, but how one acts is the final presentation of caring. Thank you for allowing me, on behalf of the patient and myself, to express my thankfulness.”
