Fara Dornevil-Pierre, certified nursing assistant, was presented with the 2019 Phyllis Abramson Licht (PAL) Award for providing exceptional care to seniors at Abramson Senior Care’s Madlyn and Leonard Abramson Center for Jewish Life at an awards ceremony on Thursday, August 22nd.
The award, which includes a cash gift and a luncheon held in the recipient’s honor, was established in 2004 by Dr. Stuart Licht to honor the memory of his late wife, Phyllis Abramson Licht, who appreciated the respectful care she received from healthcare workers as she faced terminal illness. It is presented each year on or close to August 24th, the late Mrs. Licht’s birthday, to a nursing assistant who demonstrates excellence in providing compassionate and skilled care to the residents of the Abramson Center for Jewish Life.
Ms. Dornevil-Pierre was nominated by Abramson residents, their family members, and her fellow employees who recognized her positive outlook and drive to overcome any challenge, and her commitment to providing the highest quality of care.
