What a blessing to our community. I hope her generosity, kindness and love are returned her tenfold.
Yes, it's true. She does every bit of this. But, just wait until she takes off those gloves.
So happy for Felicia! Well deserved!
Congratulations, Ms. Shockey!
Miss Felicia you are a remarkable woman and I hope you will continue your plight to help the elderly!! It appears you understand the value these seniors possess and I can't say enough about your desire to make a little bit of happiness appear once again for these lovely people! Thank you.....I know you sleep well at night just knowing you are a loving and giving person. Congratulations for an honor well deserved!!! Wish others in Lawrence would feel your same love to our seniors......thank you.
An outside organization, Crossroads Hospice, has recognized Ms Shockey with this award.
Nothing like giving someone an award with news coverage and a blowout banquet at the Oread to drum up business!!I
Ugh. Nothing like nasty comments to take the focus away from something positive.
I love reading articles about Lawrence's gems. Kindness, compassion, keep it coming Lawrence! :) Congratulations Ms. Shockey, thank you for all you do.
Thanks Felicia Shockey for all you do in the community and for elderly residents! The Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department appreciates your work and the Project LIVELY care managers are thrilled to receive a donation for the program on your behalf!
"A large part of my job is advocating for residents," she said. "Moving from the medical model of health care, which is very stale and static, to resident-directed care, and letting people know they don't have to take their medications, is very different."
This sounds like a dangerous policy to me.
I support patient directed self-determination, especially for those who have had much control taken from them b/c of illness and group living. Having said that many care protocols are in place for good reasons (safety, improved cognition,disease management , etc); a collaborative approach between providers and clients, clarifying priorities, treatment side effects/costs can work best. I'm sure the "they don't have to take their meds" statement was a little more complex and nuanced (if not, that's a problem). Sounds like she has lots of enthusiasm and energy. I liken this approach to my experience with caring for dying patients in the bad old days when docs were overly concerned with addiction potential to pain rx: what difference does it make when someone is dying? Comfort is much more important.
Agreed, ugottabekiddin. Where do you think those referrals come from?
@ seventeen: It may seem like a nasty comment, but it has some validity in it. OIG guidelines (guidelines to prohibit kickbacks, self-referrals and fraud) are out there in order to keep everyone on the up & up. Do you not think that providing money towards a charity, albeit a great charity, doesn't place any type of influence on a social worker to provide that hospice with referrals?
Not to mention, probably one of the biggest facilities in Lawrence who has the capability of providing several referrals a day. I see Brandon Woods as a fit organization that is creditable and trustworthy and hopefully wouldn't be swayed by a "kind gesture" like this, but wouldn't you favor someone who was not only providing you with a charitable donation, but also providing you publicity. Hmmmmm, I don’t know!!! @ Purplesage: I agree.
