Consider the Conversation – Bradenton

By | Tidewell News, Upcoming Events | No Comments

Consider the Conversation is a remarkable, thought-provoking film that looks at many of the issues that we will all face at the end-of-life. It opens the floodgates of thought and conversation on this most difficult and often taboo subject. It helps to illustrate many areas of improvement in our health care system. I would encourage everyone to watch this important film including physicians, healthcare workers, patients and families. This film will help us to be better physicians, better nurses, better patients and better people.

You can call them Angels out in the field.

By | Tidewell News | No Comments

Colleagues Patricia Pepke and Annette Pace are the new faces of the Tidewell Angel Gratitude Program, their photo gracing updated informational fliers and brochures.

Since the Tidewell Angel program began in July 2013, Patricia and Annette have been recognized the most often among Tidewell colleagues. Patricia, a Certified Nurse Assistant at Bradenton Hospice House, has received seven “pins.” Annette, a chaplain who works out of the Ellenton office, has collected six “pins.”

The Tidewell Angel program recognizes a colleague or volunteer who gave comfort, strength and hope that made a positive difference in the life of a patient, family caregiver(s) or other loved ones.

Honorees receive a custom-crafted pin for their first award and are recognized for each Angel contribution made in their name at the quarterly staff meeting and individual staff or IDG meetings.

Patients or family members may name a Tidewell Angel by completing a form or by going online to givetotidewell.org. The tax-deductible contribution helps fund programs and services for Tidewell patients and families.
