August Caregiver of the Month

HMC-0378-FB-Caregiver-August

Debi Cannon is the winner of the August Hospice Caregiver Award, presented by Horan & McConaty.

Debi was nominated by Lynn Fraser.

Debi Cannon cared for my mother every day for well over a year and became my (paralyzed) mom’s lifeline. Debi would assist my mother in every task including hygiene tasks. Mother was always treated with dignity and respect. Debi bathed my mother one hour before she passed. I believe to this day, my mom was waiting to see Debi one last time before she left us. Since my mom could not use her limbs, Debi would assist Mom in ways that I could never repay. My mother cherished her, and confided in her. Ms. Cannon was professional, reliable, hard working, and trustworthy. Although the nursing home where my mother resided was full of drama from the hired staff, Ms. Cannon remained mature and professional. What’s more impressive – she gained the respect of the nursing home staff and Physicians without joining in the drama. If you have an award for an outstanding caregiver then Debi Cannon absolutely deserves it. My mother died in January, (your Funeral Home handled Mother’s body and cremation). My mother was my best friend and losing her is devastating. But caregivers like Debi Cannon gave Mom a quality of life she would never have had otherwise in her final years. Please consider this very caring and dedicated hospice caregiver. She is priceless!

Sincerely,
Lynn Fraser

HMC-0378-FB-Caregiver-JulyNancy Haas of Gentiva Hospice of Denver is the winner of the July Hospice Caregiver Award, presented by Horan & McConaty.  Nancy was nominated by Nathan Gustafson, M.Div., SCC & Volunteer Services.

Nancy Haas has served with Gentiva hospice throughout the last year, first as an intern and over the last six months as a specialized Bereavement volunteer. When our Bereavement Coordinator went out on medical leave, Nancy stepped in and has dedicated 10 hours or more a week contacting our bereaved families, meeting with community members seeking support and ensuring that families receive the highest level of care. She serves with a smile and with laughter and has brightened our staff with her positive attitude. She doesn’t seek attention for her service, but has been a life saver for us in this time.

June Caregiver of the Month

HMC-0378-FB-Caregiver-June

Theresa Conde is the winner of the June 2015 Hospice Caregiver Award, presented by Horan & McConaty. Theresa was nominated by Desiree Lurie.

Theresa Conde is a wonderful CNA (and team member.) She has a very calm and gentle manner which inspires confidence in even the most particular patient… of which she has had a few! She is able to deal with folks who have dementia and encourage them to take a shower or get cleaned up with her gentle manner. Theresa has experience with comfort touch and is a certified massage therapist. As such she brings a lot of healing and comfort to her patients. I know families are always very happy to have Theresa care for their loved ones… old or young.
Sincerely,

Desiree Lurie, LCSW
