Jill Paulson

Position: Area Director of Development

Organization: Optimal Hospice

 

List your nominee's experience in Senior Care.
Jill is one of the most caring, compassionate persons I have ever met in the healthcare industry. I am a family member who lost my mom under Optimal Hospice. Jill came out to our family and spent hours with us over a weekend, treated each family member with respect, become our healthcare advocate not only over hospice but helping us understand our hospital bills, calling doctors to discuss my moms care, calling insurance companies, finding us housekeeping support, meals on wheels, called family in Mexico, respected our culture. I know from talking to Jill she has been in this industry for a very long time and we all had no doubt she was doing what was best for all of us and going above and beyond. When my family did some private background checking on Jill we discovered she has many awards in the state of California for her work in healthcare as well as in Nevada. This lady works 7 days a week, nights and weekends to support her patient and families when she doesn't have to, nor does she get paid for that from my understanding. Our internal medicine doctor told us he has never encountered someone from hospice like Jill and was impressed with her communication and time spent with the family as well as his staff. Her dedication and commitment for going above and beyond for families, patients, doctors offices and the community at large. I wish every person dying could go with Jill and her company's services.


Describe how your Nominee has exceeded his or her Job Description, becoming a hero to you or others. Provide an example or as much detail as possible of the things that they do that go above and beyond their job description.
Pretty much said in the above description, however when I asked one of her co-workers, she stated Jill does a lot of free community education to seniors, nursing homes, hospitals and other places on what we all need to talk about, the importance of having a good death. Jill bought us some books and movies to watch as well which really helped with the passing of my momma. Jill also volunteers at some senior centers per her coworker, supports many organizations with animals, seniors and the less fortunate. My family and I could write a book on how grateful we are over the work Jill Paulson does. We are not sure if we can use this picture, but we pulled this off of LinkedIn. sorry if we broke any copywriter rules.

Jill has been such an inspiration to me. She took me under her wing and I have learned so much from her. Shes genuine, kind, and goes above and beyond for her patients. She deserves this.

Ever since I started working under Jill I have been inspired. Not only does she work super hard day after day, she is incredibly supportive, encouraging and caring. I have seen her work tirelessly to get her daily activities done and still set aside time to visit our patients and make them feel incredibly special. She makes me feel like I am capable of anything and I have never had anyone believe in me so much. I am honored to cast this vote for her!

I got your message and I am here to vote for you. Thank you for always feeding me, taking me to work when my parents couldn't, helping me with summer school, letting me crash when I had nowhere to go, giving me $ for food, and helping me with my driving lessons. I hope you win Jill because you are the best mom anyone could ever wish for. I wish I was Ashlee
