The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) celebrates and honors the life of Claudina Molina, a home care aide at Potomac Home Health Care in Rockville, Maryland. Ms. Molina was tragically shot and killed outside of the Giant grocery store in Aspen Hill, Maryland, on May 6, 2016. She was among six victims.
Lauren Simpson, CEO of Potomac Home Health Care, honored the contributions Ms. Molina made as a home care aide to her patients and colleagues. “Claudina was a lovely home care aide and very generous soul,” she said. “My patients and all of us here at Potomac loved her.”
Ms. Molina is survived by her devoted daughter, son, and two grandchildren. Her family stated that she worked 16 hours a day for the last 25 years to support her family.
“All of us share the loss of a member of our caring family. It is a reminder that the work that we do is extremely valuable, but also carries great risk. We send our condolences to Ms. Molina’s family,” said Denise Schrader, Chairman of the NAHC Board of Directors.
The home care and hospice community can show their support for Ms. Molina’s family by contributing funds that will be used towards funeral expenses and supporting them in this difficult time. Contributions to the family can be made online here.
