“We were excited to nominate Joanne for this award,” said Patrick Noonan, Executive Director of The Glenview of Naples. “She exemplifies the kind of compassionate, dedicated, engaging professional who should be serving as a role model for caregivers. The need for high-quality, experienced home health caregivers will continue to expand in the years ahead, so we’re very fortunate to have Joanne as a team member.”
