Orchard Manor LPN wins ‘Caring Hearts Award’
Desiree Braham, an LPN at Orchard Manor Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Medina, has received the New York State Health Facilities Association District 10 Caring Hearts Award.
She was nominated by Orchard Manor Family Council members as a “Caring Heart” because of her exemplary dedication, skills, and compassion towards residents.
Braham was honored in December at this year’s Holiday Awards Reception at Fox Valley Country Club in Lancaster. She has followed her mother, aunts and grandmother in becoming a nurse.
Braham worked for two years as a nurse at an assisted living facility in Williamsville prior to coming to Orchard Manor two years ago. She started at Orchard Manor as a Med Nurse and is now a Unit Manager.
“She likes helping others and the medical field interests her,” said Jamie Murphy, activities director and a spokeswoman for Orchard Manor. “From day one, she’s always been willing to pitch in and help her staff or anyone as needed—she’s not above any task.”
