Santana always comes to work with a positive attitude and a smile on her face to brighten her client's day. She takes the lead

Sandra has many years of experience taking care of
seniors and we were very fortunate when she joined our team back in
September of this year.She has a calming personality and a natural
ability to care for people even in stressful situations. I think it is
her ability to empathize with her clients that makes her a shining star.
Sandra takes the lead by making suggestions that will
benefit the client or trying new approaches to solve difficult problems.
She is always helping out her fellow CAREGivers by picking up extra
shifts or by giving the office flexible availability to meet our clients
needs. Sandra is always friendly, has a positive attitude towards others

Walter is such an asset to our team and such a delight to work with . He builds trust
with the family and client he is currently with by always showing up on
time, reporting any concerns in a timely fashion and keeping in good
communication with the office. Walter is a very respectful,
compassionate and caring person and he shares his heart
by treating his client like he would his own family. He has gone the
extra mile by bringing in music and books from home that he knew his
client would enjoy just to make him feel more comfortable in his new
surroundings. Both the facility Walter works out of and the family of
his client can't say enough good things about what a great job he has
done and the difference he is making. Walter is a true team player by
picking up extra shifts and helping out when asked to do extra tasks. We
are very proud to have Walter as part of our team and we can all learn
from his example.
