The BEINHAUER CAREGIVER EXCELLENCE AWARD for February was presented on March 30 to Nelwyn Corley, CNA at Seven OaksHospice.
Nelwyn was nominated as a truly excellent caregiver because she has impressed her colleagues as someone who appears as if she thinks of others even in her sleep. She doesn’t mind when she works overtime, or when she is asked out-of-the-ordinary requests, such as convincing a paranoid patient over the phone that it is ok to take her medication…. Nelwyn treats patients like family – she’ll make you laugh, or she’ll cry with you.
It was a joy to see Nelwyn’s tears of joy and surprise when the February award for Excellence was handed to her by Katie Brandt, Beinhauer’s Community Outreach Director; and when her nomination was read out loud by Seven Oaks’ Director, Lannette McWilliams.
The Beinhauer Caregiver Excellence Award, newly awarded each month, consists of a $50 gift card and a certificate, along with an entry into the drawing for the Caregiver Excellence Award of the Year.
–All area hospices, as well as the families they serve, are encouraged to nominate an excellent caregiver for next month’s award!
It’s quick and easy to fill out a nomination form, and it’s free!
