AASC Conference and Service Coordinator of the Year Award Recipient Cherene
The EHDOC Service Coordinators attended the annual American Association of Service Coordinators Conference in Colorado this year for training and networking.
EHDOC always holds a reception for their service coordinators during the AASC conference and chooses the Service Coordinator of the Year.
This year’s recipient was Cherene McFadden from Steelworkers Tower in Pittsburgh, PA. Cherene has been the Service Coordinator at Steelworkers for five years, providing many services and excellent programs to EHDOC residents. At the young age of 10, Cherene knew she wanted to work with seniors and started volunteering at a local nursing home where she read, wrote letters and gave companionship to the patients there.
Cherene continued to work with the elderly as an administrator of several assisted living facilities, where for more than 30 years she supervised staff, managed patients and provided direct care services.
A few weeks before the AASC conference, Cherene was also awarded the 2019 Partnerships Reaching the Organization Mission (PROM) Distinguished Community Service Award. This award was for her contributions, achievements and service to the community.
The residents of Steelworkers Towers truly appreciate all that Cherene has done for them, and EHDOC is very fortunate to have Cherene on staff. Her compassionate leadership has created an environment of care and trust that truly makes a difference in the lives of all those she touches.
