2013 Caregiver Award Winners

On January 13, 2014, we gathered all our 2013 monthly Hospice Caregiver Award winners, along with their friends and family members to celebrate twelve amazing caregivers in our community.  We shared dinner and the beautiful nominations each of them received last year.  Leslie Abbott, from Agape Hospice, was named Hospice Caregiver of the Year for 2013 and will enjoy a weekend at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs!

December Hospice Caregiver Award Recipient

Julie Reil is the winner of the December Hospice Caregiver Award, presented by Horan & McConaty.  Julie was nominated by Ilene Chamberlin (family member) and Claude Krepps, Jr. (patient), who submitted the following letter explaining why they nominated Julie.

Julie Reil is simply the best!!

She is caring, intuitive, gentle and great at making conversation with my brother, drawing him out of “blue” moods and yet, always professional! Claude is almost a new man when he’s spent time with sunny Julie.

Thank heavens for the Julies of this world!

Each monthly Caregiver Award winner will receive a gift card that can be used for whatever the recipient decides and an award.

At the end of twelve months the review committee will select the Caregiver of the Year to be revealed at a banquet honoring the twelve finalists. The Caregiver of the Year will win a trip for two within Colorado.

November Hospice Caregiver

Kathy Hilliard, a CNA and RN at Porter House Residence, is the winner of the November Hospice Caregiver Award, presented by Horan & McConaty.  Kathy was nominated by Danielle Andrews, RN, a supervisor at Porter House Residence, who described her with these words…

Kathy Hilliard has been both a CNA and an RN for the Porter Hospice Residence. Her quiet and gentle, knowledgeable care combined with her advocacy for patients, their families and her co-workers often goes unrecognized on a more global level. She is a good person to “ride the river with” as Louis Lamour would often say in his books. I am grateful for her!

Each monthly Caregiver Award winner will receive a gift card that can be used for whatever the recipient decides and an award.

At the end of twelve months the review committee will select the Caregiver of the Year to be revealed at a banquet honoring the twelve finalists. The Caregiver of the Year will win a trip for two within Colorado.
