Rhonda Heath, who is originally from Jacksonville FL, joined our Daytona Beach Home Instead Senior Care family in June of 2016. She is the mother of two boys residing in the Ormond Beach area. Rhonda is a classically French trained cook and describes herself as a baker at heart. On top of being a Mother, a CAREGiver, and a Cook, Rhonda will find the time next summer to start her BA in Supervision and Management at Daytona State.

When asked how she choose her career as a CAREGiver with Home Instead Senior Care, Rhonda tells us that "it was on the advice from a dear friend.  This friend used HISC's services and only had great things to say about this company!" Rhonda said she was looking for a part time position that was positive, nurturing and less stressful that the line cook position that she had. Rhonda stated, "I never expected it to turn into such a rewarding and fulfilling career!"

While talking with Rhonda, we asked her to why she liked her job here at Home Instead and if she could share with us a memorable experience.  Rhonda tells us that really enjoys meeting and getting to know her different clients and hearing about their lives. She says, "it's a glimpse into history".  Her most memorable experiences would be "Last year, Mr. S and I baked Christmas cookies and sent some to his family. This year I overheard a family member of Mrs. D tell her what a beautiful picture she had received. It was a picture I had taken on my phone and sent to her daughter.  It's just the little things that I get to share with the clients' family that they miss out on. It means a lot to me that it brings them so much joy".  Rhonda continues on saying that "the best part of her job is making people happy! Between doing mundane tasks to help our clients stay in their home, listening to stories of their past or preparing nourishing food… it all serves to bring as much joy in the final stages of their life as I can".

The office staff says that Rhonda Builds trust with her clients by being very reliable and flexible when it comes to her client's schedules. She Takes the Lead by being completely involved with her client's care.  Rhonda Shares her Heart every day with her client by going for rides and finding things for them to do together.

While sharing the news with her client and the clients' family about Rhonda being chosen as our CAREGiver of the Month, The client told us that "Rhonda is my favorite too!"
