Torainna Hensley, CNA, with Mountain States Health Alliance Hospice in Johnson City, TN is the winner of the JANUARY 2018 Hospice Caregiver Award, presented by Tetrick Funeral & Cremation Services.

Torainna was nominated by Hannah Counts, RN and Ruby Barnett, LPN with MSHA Hospice.  Hannah and Ruby made the following comments about why Torainna was nominated to be the Caregiver of the Month:  

We want to nominate Torainna Hensley for Caregiver of the Month Award.  Torainna has been a blessing to our patients and families since the day she arrived.  She is constantly going out of her way and buying patients little gifts to encourage them to take baths.  We receive weekly compliments about her and how she is “The best CNA they have ever had.”  Many patients will choose to omit their bath if Torainna is off or sick because they trust in the exceptional care they receive from her.  Torainna uses many methods to help patients including singing.  Torainna uses the gift of singing to help bring peace and comfort to those she touches.  Most recently, Torainna was singing in a revival; there she saw the husband of one of her patients.  After the revival was over, on her day off, she drove over to the patient’s home and spent time singing with her.  Torainna NEVER complains; she wears a smile on her face wherever she goes.  Torainna works tirelessly every day for her patients.  Please consider Torainna for this nomination.  She is truly a one-of-a-kind caregiver and we are daily blessed by her.

Congratulations, Torainna, for a job well done!
