Dennis Receives Caregivers Award

Share

Talbot Hospice House CNA/CMT Cheryl Dennis recently received the Fellows, Helfenbein, and Newnam (FHN) Funeral Home Caregivers Award. This quarterly award recognizes Talbot Hospice caregivers for their selfless devotion and generosity of heart and is based upon a nomination from a patient, family, or peer. FHN also makes a donation in the recipient’s honor to the “Caregiver’s Heart” Scholarship Fund for a deserving local high school senior to pursue a career in nursing.

In their nomination,a family recently served by Talbot Hospice said, in part, about Dennis, “Cheryl helped not only our mother, but all of us as well get through her final days. It takes special people to work in this field, and Cheryl definitely has what it takes. I thank God for her every day for the care she provided and the care that I know she provides to other patients and families that need her at their most desperate times.”

“The Caregiver Award exemplifies an individual who has gone above and beyond to care for patients and their families,” said Vivian Dodge, Talbot Hospice Executive Director. “We are very proud of Cheryl to have received this award.”
