Edith Hulsmann, a resident of Bridgetown, received the Outstanding Caregiver Award from Council on Aging for her extraordinary efforts in caring for her mother-in-law, who has dementia.
Hulsmann was honored at Council on Aging’s annual meeting, March 13, at the Sharonville Convention Center.
Hulsmann was nominated by Council on Aging Caregiver Support Nurse, Anna Goubeaux, who said, “Edith’s mother-in-law requires continuing care and Edith provides that care with love, affection, compassion and the utmost dignity. Because of Edith’s care and commitment, her mother-in-law is happy and safe at home.”
“Family caregivers are at the center of the entire system of caring for frail seniors and people with disabilities,” said Council on Aging President and CEO, Suzanne Burke. “Our services supplement their efforts and support them so they can keep their loved ones at home. We have deep respect for what they do.”
