Minnie Baker is a Certified Nursing Assistant for the Halcyon Hospice Gold Team and certified by the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association. With over 30 years of C.N.A. experience, Minnie has the invaluable ability to provide excellent care, support and comfort to her patients during the end of their lives. As an integral part of the hospice interdisciplinary team, Minnie is always looking to identify any changes in her patients condition and promptly share concerns or questions with the care team.
Ron Mill, in Community Relations has had the pleasure of working with Minnie for years, “We should all be so fortunate to have someone like Minnie Baker providing love and care for us when the time is needed. The only people that could value her any more than her patients, are those of us that work on her team. Working alongside with her for the past several years, I realize what a treasure she is, and I tell referring physicians about her all the time. She makes such a difference in our patients’ lives.”
Minnie’s focus on providing quality care to her patients is fulfilling to her on a professional and personal level. “I am most passionate about doing a good job and at the end of the day knowing that I have made a difference in not only the life of my patients but in the lives of their loved ones.”
Growing up in South Georgia instilled a love for cooking good ol’ southern food in Minnie. “I love cooking and feeding people. I get so much enjoyment out of seeing smiles on the faces of those who have enjoyed a special dish I prepared.” While Minnie specializes in baking desserts, her favorite dish to make is corn casserole.
Minnie’s favorite thing to do when she’s not working is spending time with her family at home and in church. When asked what inspires her, Minnie shares “My grandchildren! I especially love our time fishing together.”
Halcyon Hospice is thankful to have Minnie on our team. If you’re interested in a career with us and would like to see what opportunities we have available, please visit the Halcyon Career Center.
