Family Legacy is happy to announce the last Caregiver of the month for 2016, Carol Patterson of Alive Hospice. As you read her story below, you will see that she is much more than just a nurse at hospice and why it was such an easy decision to honor her!
“I would like to nominate Mrs. Carol Patterson, as the hardest working, caring, and most compassionate person I know. Carol has earned this recognition in so many ways based on my personal experience and observations. From my own experience, I had a major surgery and awoke to find Carol by my side. Many times I would tell her to get some sleep or go home but she only agreed to sleep when I slept and was there for me when I would wake up. As an observer, I have witnessed her hard work for others as a hospice worker, a nurse and even a caregiver for the little ones in the nursery at church. Carol Patterson deserves this honor as she is a caregiver in every sense of the word.”
