Family Legacy is so pleased to announce our Caregiver of the month award to a member of Caris Hospice who had been referred to as an “Angel”. When you read the nomination it is easy to see why. Congratulations Sharon Robinson!
Sharon is a RN Case Manager with Caris Healthcare. Many, many times we have received notes from families expressing their gratitude for Sharon’s compassion and care. Over and over families have said, “Sharon was our Angel on Earth”.
Just recently we had a patient who had moved from home to an Assisted Living Facility. The move had been upsetting for her. The facility called saying the patient was very agitated and upset and requested a visit by the nurse. Sharon was sent to do a PRN visit and later when our Administrator followed up with the facility they praised Sharon. They said they had not seen a more compassionate and caring nurse. They stated when Sharon came for the visit the patient was still very agitated. Sharon sat down on the bed beside the patient, put her arm around her, told her everything was going to be OK, and quietly started singing a hymn to her. Before starting her second hymn, she asked the patient if she would like to lie down and rest. She continued with her singing and soon the patient was happy and resting comfortably.
We are very fortunate at Caris to have our very own “Angel”.
