On October 1, 2020, CABS’ Circle of Care Awards was a complete online experience to celebrate 41 years in the healthcare industry and the International Day of Older Persons.
Every year the United Nations (UN) gives a theme to the International Day of Older Persons. The year 2020’s theme was “Pandemics: Do They Change How We Address Age and Ageing?”, highlighting the nurses and women workforce who has aided the senior population during the COVID-19 global pandemic. To correlate with the UN’s theme, CABS’ 2020 Circle of Care Awards theme was “Celebrating a Decade of Healthy Ageing”. In recognition of the theme and CABS 41st anniversary, we launched our second annual Circle of Care Awards. The Circle of Care Award is an honor granted to those who have provided exemplary services for the community.
During the event, we presented awards to NYCHA, PPEforNYC, CABS’ aides that turned into clients, eldest aides, our first posthumous award to our Director of Patient Services, CABS’ Nursing Department, and a case coordinator who has been with the organization for more than 20 years.
We were able to enjoy several community resources such as the Alzhemier’s Foundation, Healthfirst, and God’s Love We Deliver. Words of empowerment and wisdom were received from our local politicians Senator Roxanne Persaud, Congresswoman Yvette Clarke, Assemblywoman Latrice Walker, and the Former Brooklyn Borough President, Eric Adams.
