Andrea Bynum, a licensed practical nurse with The King’s Daughters and Sons Home in Bartlett, was recently honored as the Tennessee Health Care Association’s (THCA) Memphis District Caregiver of the Year. She received the award Aug. 16 during THCA’s Convention & Trade Show in Nashville. Bynum has worked at the facility for three years.
THCA’s membership is divided into geographical districts across the state. Bynum’s name, along with the other five district winners, will be placed in the running for the statewide honor of Caregiver of the Year. The honoree will be recognized at a special ceremony on Nursing Home Caregiver Appreciation Day on Friday, Nov. 16.
“All of our Caregivers of the Year winners are remarkable people who go above and beyond for their residents. They are fully committed to care for those individuals who cannot care for themselves,” THCA Executive Director Jesse Samples said. “We are incredibly honored and proud of these individuals and what they contribute to the long term care community.”
