Pierce County Caregiver Awards – CONGRATULATIONS FTJ Care Givers!
Each year the Health Care Providers Council of Pierce County recognizes the outstanding care givers in Pierce County. This year there were 144 nominees, and 16 winners were chosen from a committee of HCPC members. Nominations came from Adult Family Homes, other Senior Living Communities and from those receiving care from in-home care providers. This year the recognition celebration was held at the Weatherly Inn and attended by over 130 people.
“We are so pleased that Franke Tobey Jones care givers Allisha Navarro and Lisa McRae were two of the 16 winners for their outstanding work at FTJ,” comments Carole Velez, FTJ Community Liaison and HCPC caregiver event committee member. “We know how important it is to recognize those who give of their heart to be care providers to our seniors. It means a lot that our two CNAs could be surrounded with other nominees who do the same work they do and to know that so many CNAs are appreciated by coworkers, family members and the residents themselves.”
