The Health Association of Niagara County Inc. has announced home health care aide Brianna Simmons of Niagara Falls is the recipient of the Caring Counts Award.
"Brianna is a very special person who makes a remarkable difference in the lives of her patients and the families she serves," said John Kinner, HANCI president and CEO. "Caregivers like Brianna play a vital role in our health care system and in the homes they work in. HANCI is proud to recognize Brianna Simmons as an outstanding employee. She is very deserving of this award."
The HANCI Caring Counts award is given monthly to a home health care employee who exceeds work expectations by going above and beyond the call of duty to provide outstanding care and service to clients.
Home care was a different type of work for Simmons, but it is now a job she loves, she said.
When Simmons is not at work, she spends her time with her three children, who, she said, "her life revolves around."
