Letter to The Lakeville Journal Editor:

The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified our collective gratitude for the sacrifices made by healthcare workers across our nation. During National Nurses Week, May 6-12, Noble Horizons salutes the courageous, dedicated nurses who every day put their lives at risk to care for others.  Whether offering encouraging words of support or highly skilled care, nurses expedite our healing with equal doses of expertise and kindness.  Their deep, unequivocal commitment and empathy have earned the trust of Americans who have voted nurses the most honest, ethical professionals in the country for 18 consecutive years.  The intensifying complexities of providing health care during the COVID-19 pandemic have only magnified our profound appreciation and respect for their selfless work.

On the occasion of National Nurses Week, Noble Horizons honors and thanks the nurses across our community who, with wide-open hearts, devote their lives to providing comfort, compassion and care 24-hours a day, 365-days a year.

In Greek, “Holos” means wholeness. From the Greek root, holism is thus to do with the whole unit rather than as a sum of its individual parts. It follows naturally, then, that holistic care is about caring for the whole human being.

To say Noble Horizons is in Auxiliary President Judy McKernon’s blood would be stating the obvious. Judy’s family connection to Noble dates back to its inception.  Judy’s father Tom Wagner, a local attorney, was chosen to administer the John H and Ethel G Noble Charitable Trust, the purpose of which was to provide a place for older people to live out their lives in pleasant, homelike surroundings.  Noble Horizons was created to fulfill this purpose, and Tom, with his wife Fran, played central roles in its development.
