WEST SPRINGFIELD – Mercy Home Care Aide Brenda Brumley has been named Home Health Aide of the Year by the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts, a nonprofit trade association of home care agencies that promotes home care as an integral part of the health care delivery system.

In her nomination, Brumley was credited with working hard to return to the job she loved – making a difference in her patients’ lives as a home health aide – following a serious car accident. 

A Mercy Home Care employee for eight years, who also serves on the agency’s Quality Committee, Brumley is described as “a wonderful, caring aide who is always able to take on an extra assignment.”

“As a home health aide, Brenda displays extraordinary dedication to her patients. She is also an important member of the Mercy Home Care team who is always willing to assist her colleagues,” said Sue Pickett, executive director of Mercy Home Care.

Brumley was one of seven 2014 Home Care Stars honored at the 2014 Home Care Innovations Showcase and Star Awards ceremony hosted by the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston on April 29.
