Chaplain Paul Roper is the winner of the Hospice Caregiver Award presented by Horan & McConaty. Paul was nominated by Sherryn Duran, LCSW at St. Anthony/Porter Hospice.
On his birthday, Paul Roper deferred celebrating with his family to read scripture and pray with the family of a dying woman despite not being on call that night.
Paul is always quick to help in an emergency, to take on a shift for an ill coworker or even one who he thinks just needs some downtime- despite the fact that he not only works on call for hospice, he also takes call for the Centura hospitals and The Butterfly Program.
When I was recovering from a serious illness, while the whole office put together food for my recovery, Paul was the one to bring it 19 miles out of his way and also made sure I had a fleece blanket and pillow to recover with.
