Community Care Hospice and Ohio’s Hospice of Fayette County honored volunteers at a Red Carpet…
During National Nursing Assistants Week, June 17-24, Ohio’s Hospice of Fayette County, an affiliate of Ohio’s Hospice, takes a moment to recognize and thank our personal care specialists for all they do 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to provide superior care to our patients and families we are privileged to serve.
At Ohio’s Hospice of Fayette County, personal care specialists are state tested nursing assistants (STNAs). They are instrumental in promoting and safeguarding the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual well-being of our patients and families.
“Our personal care specialists provide the essential daily, hands-on care in the setting our patients call home,” said Missi Knisley, executive director of Ohio’s Hospice of Fayette County. “We appreciate all they do to serve our mission and provide superior care and superior services.”
They participate as members of the interdisciplinary team and communicate any patient changes or updates to ensure proper response time and quality patient care. Ohio’s Hospice also has several STNAs who serve the organization in non-clinical ways, including scheduling and pharmacy services. Others serve as buyers, Hospice House coordinators and excellence educators.
Our personal care specialists go above and beyond each and every day. They work days, evenings, weekends and holidays. They provide or assist with personal care, including but not limited to bathing, dressing, oral hygiene, hair care, meal preparation, feeding, transfers and exercises.
Ohio’s Hospice of Fayette County is grateful and thankful for its personal care specialists’ kindness, compassion and expert care. They make a difference in the lives of patients and families with every interaction.
We invite you to meet some of our personal care specialists.
