May 2015 Caregiver Award – Carol Robertson
Carol Robertson is the winner of the May Hospice Caregiver Award, presented by Horan & McConaty.
She was nominated by Dina Schall who had the following to say about why she nominated Carol.
I had to write and tell you how exceptionally kind and caring my mom’s CNA, Carol Robertson, is. My mother was diagnosed almost 10 years ago with Alzheimer’s. Her doctor put her on hospice care in January 2015. Mom had a hard time connecting with any caregivers for years. I figured it was due to her disease. Upon suggestion from mom’s social worker, we decided to try Carol.
Within five minutes of Carol walking in the door, we heard Mom laugh and saw her smile!! I was amazed! She showered her, dressed her, fed her and held her hand the entire time. I knew then she was sent from heaven! The second time Carol was here, I even heard my mom singing in the shower. After all these years with the disease, Mom doesn’t remember anything. She hasn’t known who I am for many years. There is something special with Carol. Mom couldn’t tell you her name but she seems happy and content when Carol is near. Carol never fails to give Mom a hug, even when Mom is having a very bad day. She… Carol… is the most devoted and caring person I think I have ever met. I don’t know how much time I have left with my mother but I will be eternally grateful for the time we both have had with Carol Robertson.
Thank you Carol for your commitment to those you serve!
Congratulation to our May winner Carol Robertson.
