2011: Since 2004, The Greater Dallas Chapter of The Alzheimer’s Association has recognized exceptional professional caregivers in its 34 county service area. Award winners set the highest standard of practice in Alzheimer’s caregiving. Our central Dallas office is honored that for the last three years one of our outstanding caregivers has been recognized for an award. On November 2, 2011 Anna Dube was awarded the Diane and Hal Brierley Caregiver Award at the annual Alzheimer’s Association’s Richard J. Price Caregiver Conference in Dallas, TX. The plaque plus the generous donation of $1000 was presented to Anna by Ms. Stacey Jones Angel.
Anna has worked for our central Dallas office since 2007, and she has become one of our most sought after caregivers. There has not been a client for whom she has worked who hasn’t raved about her work ethic, kindness, and devotion. She is bright, sharp and willing to accept new challenges. Prior to immigrating to the United States from her homeland, Zimbabwe, Anna provided daily care for children and elderly family members. In her lifetime, Anna has experienced all aspects of senior care, including taking care of those afflicted with Alzheimer’s Disease or other dementias. Her very first assignment with Home Instead was to work with a difficult, hard to please client who came to depend on Anna’s comfort and companionship as she transitioned into her altered state of mind. Anna was the rock for the client and her family when dementia was winning the battle. This is just one example of the genuine compassionate care Anna provides to her clients. Anna understands her clients…she knows how to build trust, take the lead and share her heart with her Alzheimer’s clients.

The R.J.Roper Caregiver Award is reserved for a professional caregiver who exemplifies excellence in service to Alzheimer’s patients and their families. These are the special individuals who set the highest standard of practice in Alzheimer’s caregiving. This year’s winner of the R.J. Roper Caregiver Award is Mary H. of the central Dallas Home Instead Senior Care office. Mary received an award of $1,000 that was presented with a plaque during the Alzheimer’s Association’s – Greater Dallas Chapter Richard J. Price Caregiver Conference on November 3, 2010.
