Bonnie Phillips Named LNA of The Year

Phillips of Rochester Named LNA of the Year

CONCORD, N.H., Bonnie Phillips of Cornerstone VNA in Rochester was announced Home Care LNA of the Year at the Home Care Association of New Hampshire’s Annual Meeting in Meredith, NH on June 13.

For fourteen years Ms. Phillips has brought positive energy, laughter and passion to her job, and to the patients of Cornerstone VNA. “She’s an amazing caregiver, says Jennifer Gullison, Clinical Director at Cornerstone, “Returning patients ask for her specifically and the agency has received several donations in her name from patients and families.”

Licensed Nursing Assistants (LNAs) provide basic patient care and assist with nursing procedures and often include helping with “activities of daily living,” including personal hygiene, meal preparation, and assistance with self-administration of medicine.

The association was established in 1974 to promote the delivery of high-quality health care in the home by offering education and networking opportunities for home healthcare professionals, providing leadership on home care issues, and serving as a home care advocate in the public policy arena.
