On Nov. 8, 2015, seven members from the Hickory House Heroes team, including associates from Hickory House Nursing Home in Honey Brook, Pennsylvania, graced Citizens Bank Blvd. in the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease.
“In 2014, the Philadelphia Walk was the No. 1 walk for number of participants and the No. 2 walk for donations generated,” said Danielle Kronmuller, registered dietician and Hickory House Heroes team captain.
This is the story of a nurse who had a dream.
Joy Mattson is a registered nurse at Hickory House Nursing Home in Honey Brook, Pennsylvania. She knew that one of her residents, Mary Troop, a retired nurse, had been diagnosed with breast cancer and was undergoing radiation and chemotherapy. Mattson noticed that Troop was becoming depressed and that her hair was beginning to fall out.
