The Florida Health Care Association (FHCA) recognizes Linda Leblanc, a CNA at Heather Hill Health Care Center during National Nursing Assistants Week
Linda has been at Heather Hill for 9 years. She leads each day with compassion and has been an amazing mentor to everyone. “I truly love being a CNA. The comfort I can give to the young or elderly brings me much pleasure; the accomplishment of going home when my day is over knowing that I made someone smile means so much to me.”
Linda Leblanc gets joy out of bringing comfort to her residents and putting a smile on their faces. “Being a CNA is not just a job, it’s my family,” she says.
Every resident enjoys being around Linda, and she goes above and beyond to make each day special. We are incredibly proud of Linda and her achievements. Being surrounded by such compassionate and devoted employees, like Linda in our Heather Hill family is a true blessing.
