HISC Nashville's 2018 CAREGiver of the Year
Cheryl M.

Congratulations, Cheryl, for being our 2018 CAREGiver of the Year! Cheryl is very hardworking and dedicated to her clients. She is the primary CAREGiver for Mr. and Mrs. Williams and she is wonderful at providing care for both of them, who happen to have dementia.

The family recently wrote us a letter regarding the superior job that Cheryl does with their parents. Cheryl has been with them nearly two years, and within this timeframe she has stepped up at any given time to stay late or come in on her days off to ensure that their needs are met.

They are impressed with her dependability and can-do attitude, as well as her promptness. She has taken extra time and effort to ensure other CAREGivers for the Williams are well trained and that communication is set for care that her clients require.

Lawrencia B. - October 2018

Lawrencia is a hard worker and we can always count on her when we need her. Characteristics that stand out about Lawrencia are her compassion and concern for her clients’ well-being. I was personally impressed with Lawrencia when I was on call recently and she called and said that her clients did not have water when she left her shift earlier that morning. She asked me to call them and see if they wanted her to bring them bottled water. Luckily, we found out they did have water it was a different issue, but her willingness to go above and beyond for this client just shows not only what a great CAREGiver she is, but what a great person she is as well!  Congratulations, Lawrencia!
