Sheila's Story

The life of a Home Instead client is constantly changing with new diagnoses, care providers coming and going, and events influencing their every day. In days filled with constant fluctuations and adjustments, it can be difficult for an individual to feel grounded, safe and secure. When put into the care of Sheila, stability, patience and overwhelming comfort follow, without struggle or question.

Over the more than three years Sheila has been a CAREGiver with our Home Instead franchise, she has impacted the lives of many clients and countless family members. Over the years, there have been resounding words of appreciation from clients and families alike, proclaiming Sheila as a stronghold in their loved ones’ lives because she is someone who can be counted on to bring only her best self with her wherever she goes.

CGOTY_Sheila_Sheboygan_2018_2.jpgIn spending only a few moments with Sheila, one immediately notices a few things about her presence: her intricate and detailed communication, and the always-present look of determination on her face. While Sheila is the sum of more than just these parts, they give us insight into who she truly is.

Sheila presents zero limitations in her abilities. Sheila is like the line in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, “Though she be but little, she is fierce.”

There are no challenges that cannot be met when taken on by Sheila, and you can be sure that each day and experience will be expertly logged and conveyed to the office. It is her attention to detail and her dedication to give each client her best that endear her so closely to her clients and their families.
One of the clients blessed by Sheila’s presence is Dennis. Over a year of working together, Sheila has formed a lasting impression, not only on Dennis but also on his wife, Mary, who coordinates his care.

To say that Mary was giddy with excitement upon hearing of Sheila’s nomination for CAREGiver of the Year is a gross understatement: “There is no one more deserving than Sheila ... I always take my phone with me but don’t bother looking at it in worry over my husband because I find great comfort in Sheila being there. She is part of our family. We just love her so much! She gives us the peace of mind we need.”

Mary, like many others, has seen what an incredible CAREGiver Sheila is and what qualities she brings to the table. Mary said, “She always goes above and beyond. She’s as caring as they come.”

CGOTY_Sheila_Sheboygan_2018_5.jpgSometimes it’s the qualities in those two simple statements that build a connection and relationship that will span time. Other times, clients are fortunate enough to have a CAREGiver who brings that and so much more come into their lives. That’s Sheila. She brings compassion, drive, humility, patience and love to everything she does, in addition to being caring and constantly going above and beyond. 

There are a precious few people in our lives who we meet and who have such an impact as Sheila. It is truly a blessing to know Sheila and to have her share her gifts with our clients every day.
