Outstanding members of the Ohio’s Hospice staff are recognized every quarter with the Bouquet of Recognition Awards. Nursing Assistant Cathy Gipson, STNA, recently received the Sunflower Award.
Care Specialist Cathy Gipson, STNA, shared her expertise with members of a family, giving them new solutions to help care for their mother.
“We, as caretaking family members, have learned techniques from her that have helped us better take care of my mother, in her 10th year of Alzheimer’s,” according to the Bouquet of Recognition submitted to honor Cathy. “Cathy is gentle and compassionate with exceptional care. She is so patient and has such a gentle way with my Mother that puts her at ease. Even if my mother is agitated, Cathy has a gentle way of comforting her. We have been acquainted with many nursing aides for the last several years and Cathy is by far at the very top of the list of compassionate and experienced caretakers.”
We are grateful to Cathy for her commitment to outstanding patient care and for being a member of our hospice team.
