VITAS Chaplain Builds Rapport... and Bookshelves

Congrats to Chaplain Adam Davis, whose can-do attitude and commitment to go above and beyond for our patients and families earned “Hospice Caregiver of the Year” honors from the Ohio Health Care Association.

During early 2019 COVID-19 lockdowns at a Columbus care center, Adam assembled an Alzheimer’s patient’s bookshelves and furniture, and set up his entertainment and communication devices to stay connected with his family. Bless you, Adam, for your toolbox and for caring so deeply.
