This month, March, we get to know Denise Stratton. Denise has been married to her husband Tom for 26 years. They have 2 daughters, 2 dogs, 1 cat and a horse. Living in Port Orange FL, Denise describes herself as people oriented, outgoing and outspoken, assertive but sensitive and loving new experiences. The office staff at Home Instead Senior Care, Daytona Beach, describes Denise as extremely reliable, willing to go above and beyond for her clients, and always a team player.
When we asked Denise how she choose Home Instead Senior Care as her career, she said that she has been caring and working for our senior population since she was 16 years old. She loves learning about her client's past experiences and giving them the opportunity to reminisce about their family. Denise tells us that decorating for the holidays with a client and making special meals for them to enjoy are some of her most memorable experiences shared with her clients. Being able to help them and give them something that they enjoy but can no longer do for themselves, is one of the reasons she does what she does. When we asked Denise what she likes the least about her position, the only answer she can give us is "Nothing!".
Denise Builds Trust with her clients by being dependable and always on time. She Shares her Heart during every shift that she is with one of her clients and even on her days off. We found out that when Denise is not scheduled for a day, she makes sure that her client has a well-balanced meal that just needs to be heated. Denise Takes the Lead to ensure that all of her clients live their lives to their fullest potential and that they always have something to look forward to.
Denise's dedication and commitment to Home Instead Senior Care and her clients, ensures her this month's nomination as our March 2018, CAREGiver of the Month!
