Sasha Threatts, personal care specialist with Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton, was recognized with the Sunflower Award, which is given to a personal care specialist each quarter. Outstanding members of the Ohio’s Hospice staff are recognized every quarter with the Bouquet of Recognition Awards for going above and beyond in advocating for and serving hospice patients and families.
Sasha was nominated by a patient’s daughter and one of her colleagues. The patient’s daughter appreciated the time Sasha took with her mother to give her complete baths, including fixing her hair. “She was very compassionate and caring toward my mother,” the patient wrote in the nomination form. “She listened to my mother’s stories and shared some of her own.”
Sasha’s colleague, Cathy Gipson, who also is a personal care specialist with Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton, praised Sasha for helping her teammates in addition to her compassionate care for patients. “Sasha is great with communicating when there is a need or passing along information to other team members,” Cathy said. “She a wonderful person to work with, and her patients adore her! Our patients and their family members sing her praises.”
