September 2013 Caregiver Award – Lori Preble

Lori Preble, a Hospice Specialist at Gentiva Hospice, is the winner of the September Hospice Caregiver Award, presented by Horan & McConaty. Lori was nominated by Nate Gustafson, Chaplain at Gentiva Hospice, who described her with these words…

“Lori Preble is a “Hospice Specialist” with our hospice organization. Her main role is to provide education about the end of life and the hospice benefit with local hospitals, physician groups and clinics across the Metro area.

Last month Lori went out of her way to visit one of our patients, a 28 years old who, in a panic, revoked our hospice care and went to the local emergency room. Once in the ER, Lori went to see him because he did not have any family close to him. The patient found out he had too many complications to overcome physically and was only expected to live 24-48 hours.

The young man was afraid and alone and Lori stayed with him the whole day in the hospital. She found out that he loved hunting and had a favorite hunting magazine so she went to Wal-Mart and found his favorite hunting magazine and brought it to him in the hospital.

Lori did all of this out of her compassionate heart and deserves to be recognized for her selfless care.”

Thank you Lori for your commitment to those you serve!
