Spotlight on Nurse Adrienne Dawkins

Adrienne Dawkins, LPN, embodies dedication and compassion at The Heritage. Inspired by a colleague she transitioned from CNA to LPN, and for seventeen years her unwavering commitment to patient care has been at the forefront of her career. “My co-workers encouraged me to go back to school to become a nurse,” Adrienne shares warmly, “they told me- “I had what it takes”.” Highlights include saving a resident’s life with CPR and fostering community support. “I love to see residents thriving independently,” Adrienne remarks.

Adrienne’s passion lies in providing comfort in all stages of life. “I love to see people heal, and recover from injuries and illness, but I also want to be a comfort to those in the end stages of their life. If I didn’t work here at The Heritage, I would love to be a Hospice nurse,” she explains. Adrienne is grateful to colleagues and the community, saying, “It has been my pleasure serving you for the past seven years. I hope all residents of The Heritage find comfort in knowing that I, along with my small team of Kristine R., Lori K., my weekend nurse, and as of now, 3 Home Health Aides, Toni D., Brittany D., and Noelle R., are always willing to help if you need it.
