SUNRISE, Fla. – January 14, 2020 – Interim HealthCare Inc., the nation’s leading franchise network of owners providing homecare, senior care, hospice and healthcare staffing services, today announced Angela Young, CNA, as the 2019 Paraprofessional of the Year. Angela joined Interim HealthCare of Greenville, South Carolina in 2001.
This honor is given to an individual that provides exemplary patient care and continuously demonstrates the H.E.A.R.T. qualities of Interim HealthCare paraprofessionals, which stands for Honorable, Experience, Ability, Reliability and Training.
Serving as a lead aide, Angela is responsible for providing an exceptional hospice care experience for patients and their family members. Beyond caring for patients, Angela constantly brings new ideas to her team such as identifying opportunities to improve documentation processes and developing improved protocols for scheduling communication between aides and patients’ families.
“Angela is an exemplary paraprofessional earning her the nickname ‘angel of hospice aides.’ Angela understands that great care should not only focus on managing medical symptoms but should also be rooted in compassion and enrich every aspect of an individual’s wellbeing,” said Judy Cronin, RN, Clinical Care Manager at Interim HealthCare of Greenville, South Carolina. “Angela continuously goes above and beyond to demonstrate excellence and integrity in her care. Angela truly has a servant’s heart.”
Angela understands that the true work of hospice will always be as much about honoring people with compassionate listening as it is about managing health conditions. Her willingness to do both is what keeps Angela motivated to continue this challenging work.
“It’s an honor to be a recipient of the Paraprofessional of the Year award, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve others while also continuing my professional development at Interim HealthCare,” said Angela. “To me, being a paraprofessional means making a difference in the lives of patients and their families every day.”
