"I have worked as a caregiver at Home Instead in Athens for almost a year. The owners here have developed a family like environment with their employees that I love. From the very beginning of orientation, they let you know that you are a valued member of their team and that without quality employees they cannot do this work. Sherry Hedgepeth lets you know that no tasks will be asked of you that she would not personally perform herself.
The owners get to know employees personally and frequently ask about my children and events going on in our lives. The Client Care Coordinator takes the time to get to know employees personally as well. She genuinely tries to pair clients with caregivers with similar interests or personalities. As caregivers, we do so much more than cook, clean, and help with daily activities. We build close personal relationships with clients and love them like family. This is due in some part to the wonderful job Heather Tracey does.
I have also personally witnessed owners and fellow employees come together in support of another employee whose home had burned down. They raised donations and collected basic necessities for the whole family. I have never worked in a place that fostered such an environment of caring concern for each employee and client. Right when you walk in the door it says, "to us it's personal" and I truly believe that to be true."
Wilder once said: "Home is the nicest word there is." This may be
especially true for loved ones affected by Alzheimer's or another type
of dementia. The warm, familiar surroundings of home can play an
important role in managing cognitive diseases.
