Kim, who is one of our Client Care Coordinators, recently accompanied me on a surprise trip to present Sarah with her Caregiver of the Month award during her shift. We were able to successfully plan our surprise with the client's family and share her special moments with them. Sarah had the biggest smile on her face as we presented her the award, and the client was just as excited. The client stated that "Sarah is the perfect caregiver and has become like a granddaughter to me". She stated that "Sarah is young and exciting. She has lot of great ideas, and cooks like a gourmet chief". The client's daughter mentioned that Mom is a completely different person since receiving our services and having Sarah as a caregiver. Sarah takes the lead with her client and makes sure she's eats, gets to all of her doctor's appointments and remains active. She plans various activities that the client can easily perform with the arthritis in her hands.
Prior to receiving our services the client was told she could not be left alone anymore, and she was very worried about being able to connect with someone. However, with a smile, she shared with me that Sarah is "just right".
