We at Family Legacy are proud to present the Caregiver of the Month Award to Rick Applegate of The Hearth at Hendersonville. It is easy to see through the words of his nomination and in meeting Rick that he has and is still touching so many lives with his big heart and caring ways.
“Rick has worked in the activities department here at The Hearth at Hendersonville since February 2012. He has touched many lives through his kind and cordial ways, his attention to the needs of residents and families and his unique musical gifts. Rick frequently volunteers his time to sing at special events and funerals and has an established reputation as one of North Nashville’s finest Elvis impersonators. He also leads a wonderful bible study for interested residents.
In looking back at notes in our customer survey files from the past few years Rick’s name is consistently mentioned. His humbleness, hard work and extra effort has made a difference in the lives of many people. He clearly goes far beyond the paid aspects of his job and gives back to others in many ways.”
Each monthly Caregiver Award winner will receive a gift card that can be used for whatever the recipient decides and a 3D crystal key ring.
At the end of twelve months the review committee will select the Caregiver of the Year to be revealed at the Annual Luncheon. The Caregiver of the Year will win a 3-night trip to Florida, $200 spending money and an engraved gift and plaque.
