Kansas City-based caregiver Tina Paradise-Hall receives prestigious honor for life-enriching care of patients


COLUMBIA, Maryland–  Maxim Healthcare Services (Maxim), a national provider of continuous skilled nursing services and personal and behavioral care, announced today that Tina Paradise-Hall, LPN has been named a Regional Caregiver of the Year. This honorable recognition is part of Maxim’s Caregiver of the Year Award program, which celebrates nurses, home healthcare aides, and behavioral direct care workers for their impactful contributions to the home healthcare community.

“Our caregivers play a vital role in providing compassionate, holistic care to our patients,” said Maxim’s Chief Executive Officer, Jarrod DePriest. “We care for some of the nation’s most medically fragile patients including those who require behavioral and community support. We are so grateful for Tina’s dedication and the difference she makes every day in the lives of her patients and their families.”

Paradise-Hall was selected from among hundreds of nominations across the country for the life-enriching care she provides for her patients. For 20 years, Paradise-Hall has worked as a caregiver, spending the last five years with Maxim. She currently cares for a medically complex five-year-old boy who has spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy. Paradise-Hall is described by her colleagues and patients’ families as a caring, highly-knowledgeable and passionate caregiver. Amy Anderson, a Recruitment Operations Manager for Maxim who nominated Tina said, “Tina was born to be a caregiver. She has a calming presence about her that allows her patients’ families to rest easy knowing their loved one is being well cared for.”

While there are many admirable qualities about Paradise-Hall, her colleagues all agree that she is an advocate for her patients. Recently, Paradise-Hall was able to teach one of her young patients how to use a communication device. Prior to that, her patient was non-verbal, but Paradise-Hall believed her patient should have a voice. She believed in her patient’s abilities and was able to help him in school, advocating that he get to take part in learning the curriculum. The patient thrived with Paradise-Hall’s care and assistance and the family largely credits her for their son’s academic success.

“If I had a loved one requiring skilled-nursing services, I would want Tina,” said Katelyn Keeney, Recruitment Operations Manager in the Kansas City office. “We all agree that she is one of the best Maxim has to offer, and we can always count on her to deliver compassionate, quality care.”

Outside of caregiving, Paradise-Hall has experienced great loss in her personal life. However, she credits her job for the purpose it gives her. “I do find the strength and motivation to get up for work every day through the kids I care for because I am needed and likewise, I need them too,” said Paradise-Hall.

Paradise-Hall will be presented with the award during a special ceremony on April 17, 2024 in Florida. She is also a candidate for Maxim’s John “Doc” Langley National Caregiver of the Year Award, which will be announced that same evening.
