Horizon Home Care & Hospice Seeks Nominees for Annual Touching Lives Award

 

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2011 Touching Lives Award, presented by Horizon Home Care & Hospice, a non-profit licensed, full service home care agency and hospice provider. Past Touching Lives Award winners include former Wisconsin First Lady Sue Ann Thompson, Chief Executive Officers Leo Brideau and Bill Petasnick, physicians, and hospice and palliative care nurses.

 

The award honors those individuals who’ve made a lasting impact on improving the lives of others through their efforts. The ideal nominee has demonstrated:

*Length of Service providing service to our community for at least 20 years

*Depth of Commitment going beyond what is expected with tenacity

*Innovation in creating their own organization or project, or advance an existing one

*Leadership especially in the ability to get others to work together toward a common cause

*Results in their work in health care, human service or community projects that improve lives

*Creation of meaningful change by making a unique or lasting impact through their efforts

 

Recipients will receive their awards at Horizon’s annual Matters of the Heart Gala February 19, 2011. The awards are hand-blown glass works of art created by local artist Daniel Ostrov. Horizon established the awards in 2007, the first year they held their Gala which raises funds for the agency’s Grief Resource Center, Wisconsin’s only free walk-in center dedicated to grief, bereavement and healing. This is the first time Horizon has opened the award nomination process to the public.
