Tallahassee's Bond Community Health Center honors its most seasoned caregiver
The Capital City recognized a very special caregiver on Saturday. The Bond Community Health Center, its staff, community members and local elected officials honored the patient navigator everyone knows as Mother Stanley.
Bond CEO Dr. Temple Robinson said, at the age of 86, Janice Stanley interacts with patients like no one else.
"A kind person (who's) lived in this area forever so everybody knew her. And she can convince people to come to the doctor and defuse a volatile situation easily."
Although, speaking to Saturday's celebratory crowd, Stanley herself had a different take.
"Sometimes I think when they saw me coming, they had a frown on their face and I just ignored it and kept talking!"
Now, the Bond Community Health Center's remodeled patient waiting room is named in Stanley's honor. And both City and County commissions proclaimed Saturday "Mother Janice Stanley Day."
