Hundreds will gather on Friday, Nov. 20, to honor caregivers – including nurses, physicians, therapists, home companions and industry leaders – in the Raleigh area for their work and dedication to home-based and hospice care during the North Carolina Triangle Home Health and Hospice Awards.

This awards program, which is in its second year, acknowledges the outstanding professionals who are making a difference in the community through the quality health care support they provide to patients and their families.

Community members have submitted their nominees in the four award categories of Leadership Excellence, Lifetime Achievement, Volunteer of the Year, and Medical Practice of the Year. A panel of judges has reviewed the entries and will announce the winners during the gala at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.

Last year’s award winners included Nikki Ferrell of Heartland Hospice; Dr. Alan Kronhaus, founder of Doctors Making Housecalls; Nancy Wyman, for her volunteerism to Duke Hospice; and Dr. Martin Janis of Raleigh Geriatrics, PA.

This awards program was initiated by Well Care Home Health to bring the industry together in celebration of National Home Care & Hospice Month.

“We are part of a caring and compassionate industry with incredible professionals that make a huge difference in people’s lives,” said Wayne Long, CEO of Well Care Home Health. “This program gives all of us in home care and hospice a chance to celebrate our accomplishments together and pay tribute to those special individuals and organizations that help us stand out in such an extraordinary way.”
