Peggy Auten is the winner of the August Hospice Caregiver Award, presented by Horan & McConaty. She was nominated by Kathy Iwanowski, RN, Optum Hospice & Palliative Care who had the following to say about why she nominated Peggy.
While attending a recent death, the caregiver told me that Chaplain Peggy Auten had a profound effect on our patient earlier that day. The caregiver noted that whatever Peggy said to the patient at her visit brought him a sense of peace immediately and lasted until he expired. It was so great to hear this as the family had previously declined a chaplain visit as they were not “religious.”
