Tuesday, January 14, 2020 8:41 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Edna Burns, RN, BSN
RN Director of Case Management, Home Care and Adult Protective Services
Clermont Senior Services

Edna grew up in small town America to a large family. Her parents instilled the lesson of service to others, which lead her to becoming a nurse. Edna worked 20 years at Christ Hospital. Edna ended her career as a hospital nurse because she needed something with flexible scheduling looking at the future of having an aging parent needing more assistance in the home. Edna made a decision to become a visiting nurse. This led her to a small home health agency where she worked her way up to become the Administrator/Director of Nursing. Edna is a “senior working for seniors.” She started work at Clermont Senior Services as Director of Home Care and Case Management. She also Supervises Adult Protective Services for Clermont County. Edna says it is a rewarding yet sometimes stressful position but she loves every minute of it.

Edna is on the Steering Committee for the Ohio Human Services Training System which provides education and training for Adult Protective Services for Ohio. She is a current Member of Ohio Coalition for Adult Protective Services. Edna volunteers as Guardian Ad Litem for CASA for Children in Clermont County. She supports Developmentally Delayed Adults by being a nurse advisor for a group residential home in Clermont County.
