East Arkansas Area Agency on Aging celebrated Nurses Week 2018 with a luncheon for their 12-county staff of registered nurses. Held in the central headquarters Jonesboro office, nurses were audience to the well wishes of executive staff of the Agency. “Much trust is placed in the nurses of the Agency who man offices in the 12-county region of the state defined as a planning and service area,” said Jacque McDaniel. “2018 marks our 40th year of service in providing home care in the region. We were the first to do so and our longevity is attributed to persons such as these.”

Sherry Way, RN, of Poinsett County was presented a 10-year service pen for her contribution. “We have a long history of longevity in service to the Agency’s home care program,” said Kathy Frames, RN, Home Care manager. “Sherry is one of many to continue to be loyal to our patients. There are a number of folks remaining who actually helped to open the program.”

Those recognized included Cathy Crain, RN, Agency nurse; Frances Boyce, Crittenden; Sherry Way, Mississippi, and Poinsett; Kathy Frames, Home Care manager, Jonesboro; Kim Allen, Cross; Kimberly Baker, Greene; Arlene Dormio, training and compliance nurse; Debi Treadaway, Lawrence and Randolph; Debbie Youngman, Craighead; Bonnie Wilson, Phillips; and Candice Holcomb, Clay.
