Connie is one of the nurses who you know was meant to be a nurse. She is compassionate, an advocate and steadfast in her resolve to help her patients, families, and caregivers. She uses a consistent approach with my friend to makes sure that she gets what she needs and follows up on her health activities. Connie not only consistently checks in on my friend but with me as her DPOA, making sure that we have everything in place to support my friend through her health transitions. Connie’s ability to collaborate and connect us to resources has been a huge help in supporting both of us. Connie individualizes and paces my friend's care to meet her needs, while all along maintaining belief in our abilities. Thank you, Connie, for all you do. I'm not sure I could do this without you!
