Posted on November 25, 2013 By

Seven Home Health Aides from Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services (PHHC), Eatontown, a company that provides home care for individuals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, recently received awards for “Going the Extra Mile” at the 2013 Home Health Aide Recognition Day, sponsored by the Home Care Association of N.J., at the PNC Bank Arts Center, Robert B. Meyner Reception Center, Holmdel, New Jersey.

The Home Health Aide of the Year is awarded to certified home health aides (CHHA) who have demonstrated excellence, leadership and compassion throughout his or her career. The HHAs of the Year from PHHC are Marsha Ciali, Brick; Jen Blair, Eatontown; Princess Walker, Galloway; Roslyn Harris, Mount Laurel; Yina Charlot, North Brunswick; and Denise High, South Orange.

PHHC aide Rubin Boamah, North Brunswick, was named Rookie of the Year, an award given to an individual who has been a certified home health aide for less than two years but has already exhibited excellence and growth in the role.

“I am so proud that we were able to recognize seven hard-working and caring home health aides,” said Jonathan Herman, Chief Operating Officer of PHHC. “Not only do they represent Preferred so well in the community, but I know they provide quality care to many clients and families in need.”

Each honoree received an award and a keepsake book with tributes about the contributions home health aides make to the care and safety of their clients.
