CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE – Carolyn Richards, an accounting assistant at Cape Regional Medical Center, was recently honored with the 2012 Outstanding Service Recognition Award by the Cape May County Department of Aging and Disability Services for her excellent work to aid the hearing impaired.

Richards was presented with the award by Freeholder Kristin Gabor in addition to being recognized by both county and state officials at the Fourth Annual Disabilities Awareness Day held in November.

Richards began the Hard of Hearing Support Group in 2011. The free support group is for hard of hearing adults and meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. in the Maruchi Room at Cape Regional Medical Center.

“I am very proud of the success of the Hard of Hearing Support Group,” said Richards. “The group has 15 regular members and continues to grow. With approximately 36 million Americans who have reported hearing loss, the group is meeting a need in our county.

“Being recognized by the county is an outstanding honor,” she added. “It is my hope that the recognition will provide additional emphasis to the growing need of our residents who are coping with hearing loss.”

Richards has worked in the finance department at Cape Regional Medical Center since May, 2006. She and her husband, Daniel, live in North Cape May with their daughter.
