– The Compassus program serving Wall Township and the surrounding areas is proud to recognize Equan Craft during National Nursing Assistants Week June 15-22 for providing the highest level of quality hospice care for patients and their families.

“We are proud to recognize Equan for his tireless efforts over the past ten years to provide our patients and their families with superior care that goes beyond fulfilling their medical and emotional needs, delivering a more meaningful end-of-life experience for our patients,” said Lori Thompson, executive director for Compassus – Manasquan. “Equan’s positive and caring attitude, unique gift in connecting with patients and willingness to support colleagues makes him an integral part of the care we provide. We are extremely fortunate to have him on the Compassus team.”

“Equan’s skills, compassion and attitude are a model for coworkers new and old,” said Brenda Mattessich, director of clinical services for Compassus – Manasquan. “He is committed to keeping The Hospice Promise by delivering top-quality care, serving the needs of his patients and families and spreading the stories of hospice to those with whom he comes in contact.”

Nursing assistants provide as much as 90 percent of the direct long-term care delivered in the U.S., interacting daily with an array of personalities, cultures, abilities and disabilities in nursing homes, home care, hospice, assisted living and other long term care settings.

Compassus – Manasquan will recognize other local nursing assistants during National Nursing Assistants Week by presenting them with framed certificates of appreciation for their dedication to the patients and families they serve.
