November 8th-November 14th is National Home Care Aide Week. Lake Superior Hospice recognizes the amazing work that our team of professionals offer, and would like to thank our Home Health Aides for all that they have done and will continue to do to provide that extra layer of support for our patients and their families. Our excellent team of Home Health Aides are Debra Beyer, Carley Leanes, Brenda Argall, Susie Lefler, Erica Hattis, and Emily Carefoot.
Hospice home healthcare presents many challenges, but the rewards often outweigh those challenges. “The most rewarding part of being a Home Health Aide is providing a service that, although seemingly simple, brings moments of relief for our patients and their families, especially during such an emotional and challenging time,” Emily commented.
“It feels like an honor to be a part of this,” said Susie. Lake Superior Hospice is proud of their commitment to providing the best possible care to our patients and their families, and for the comfort, joy, warmth, and compassion they bring in their everyday work.
May 6-12 is National Nurses Week!
National Nurses Week at Lake Superior Hospice means celebrating the excellent care, compassion, and commitment that each of our nurses display every day. Our nurses are exceptional in all that they do and their passion for helping our patients shines through their work. They go above and beyond for our patients and their families; whether it’s providing symptom management, support for the family, making arrangements to fulfill last wishes, and so much more! We are grateful to have an incredible group of nurses as members of our hospice team.
Lake Superior Hospice would like to thank the following nurses who are a part of our clinical staff: Becky Shauver, Carol Blashill, Lynn Johnson, Lisa Johnson, Eileen Smit, Christy Maki, Glenda Christian, Julie Higbie, Nichol Hewitt, Louise Wilcox, and Denise Gallippo.
