SHC North Florida Resident Named “2016 FHCA Resident of the Year”

Ms. Lucy Kennedy, a resident at SHC of North Florida and recent recipient of the Eden Alternative Award, was also honored as the “2016 FHCA Resident of the Year” by the Florida Health Care Association (FHCA). She worked with Senator Don Gaetz to get an increase in the personal needs allowance for residents. She helped triple the nursing center resident personal needs allowance in Florida. She traveled to Orlando earlier this month to accept her award on behalf of Florida’s 70,000 plus residents who were so deserving of this increase.
