Hospice Caregiver Award Program

We have always heard the wonderful stories of the care Hospice of Western Kentucky provide.  In 2012 it went from being a story heard to a story lived.  My grandfather and hero Frank B. Harris brought Hospice of Western Kentucky into his home in November of 2012.  Our family was so uncertain and fearful of what would happen in the months ahead.  The compassion, guidance and care they provided turned doubt into hope. My grandfather passed away August 11, 2013. My family and I will be forever grateful to the staff who have devoted their lives to making others lives better.  


Because of this, along with the numerous stories we hear from others who are touched by Hospice of Western Kentucky's care, we have created the Hospice Caregiver Award as a way to recognize and thank the caregivers of Hospice for their selfless service to the many families in our community.  

This month’s caregiver award as presented by Haley-McGinnis Funeral Home & Crematory goes to an individual with a can-do attitude, and always has a willingness to help out when she can, no matter what area of the organization needs a helping hand. She wears her huge heart on her sleeve and her passion for hospice is very apparent to anyone she talks to. She excels in connecting patients of our healthcare community to hospice and palliative care services and has such a passion to educate within both the healthcare community and community as a whole. This month’s hospice caregiver award goes to Outreach Liaison, Emily Cadiz! Thank you for all you do!


A special thanks to Emily Cadiz for her commitment to service excellence. - If you would like to nominate an individual for their service, please email [email protected] the name of the person you are nominating and the reason for doing so.  At the end of each month we will recognize the recipient for their continued efforts to provide love and care to all they serve.
