Diane was awarded a certificate by Wellness Director Cathy Stalder for her “Passion in Action” which is defined as a caregiver that goes above and beyond to meet the physical, spiritual and physiological needs of a resident. Her colleagues and Oakley House residents held a surprise luncheon in her honor.
We are proud of the passionate care that she provides and her colleagues at State of the Heart Hospice agree. Amy Hueker states “Diane is always willing to be a team player and will always pick up any extra time to take care of the patient.” The Team Coordinator Kim Livingston discussed the State of the Heart approach is to deliver compassion in everything they do. “It is one thing to coach your nurses to be compassionate but it is truly remarkable when you see what a difference it makes in a patients well-being. Diane is a true example of delivering compassionate care” states Kim.
The staff at Oakley House is proud to work with Diane in providing knowledgeable and compassionate services for our residents. Diane is always known by the staff to be a great addition and provides great knowledge and resources to the care we provide. Her thorough care assessment and documentation make her joy to partner with and address any concerns. Thank you Diane for your compassion!
