We would like to honor Alejandra S. as our caregiver of the month for June 2018! Alejandra started with HISC in March of 2017. She took a brief leave of absence at the end of last year, but returned to what she loves, “caring for seniors with a company she calls home”. Alejandra has cared for several clients with a wide range of care needs; some as simple as transportation to the local grocery store and all the way up to end of life care. She treats each client and their family with love, kindness, respect and makes them feel supported. Alejandra has a special way about her! She tailors her skills to meet the need of each client. One of her most important traits is the ability to give each senior back their dignity and helps them love life again. She has a female client who is young at heart and mind but her health is failing. She and her husband were once an active outdoors couple, but lately she has been very unhappy due to her declining health and her inability to do the things she used to. One day during her shift with this client, Alejandra got her all dolled up! She styled her hair and did her make up. The client was so happy; words could not ex-press how wonderful she felt. When her husband saw her, he was at a loss for words. He said, “I’m taking my beautiful wife out on the town!”, and he did!! This is just one example of her amazing acts of kindness and her drive to go above and beyond with each client. Alejandra, on behalf of your Home Instead Senior Care family, thank you! We are so proud of you and the care you provide every day.
We are very proud to announce Brenda D. as Home Instead's CAREGiver of the Month for May 2018! Brenda started with the Victorville Home Instead in January of 2017, and has already worked over 2000 hours so far! Brenda has dedicated her life to caring for others, and actually came to us from the Home Instead in Long Beach. She was highly recommended, and after speaking to her former colleagues, we were very lucky to have Brenda join our team. Last week, we received a letter from a neighbor of a long time client who recently passed. Brenda was a part of the team who cared for this admittedly difficult client, but the love and care she provided was always evident. Brenda herself shared with Staffing how lucky she feels to be a part of our team, and we couldn't agree more! For this and so much more, we are honored to present Brenda with this award. Congratulations again to Brenda D, and thank you for everything you do!
Frances has been a CAREGiver with us since February 2015, and she became a Legacy Leader in 2016. Frances is one of those CAREGivers Staffing adores - she is an excellent communicator, always willing to help out at the last minute, and highly skilled as well as compassionate to others. Frances is also a client favorite - Staffing has learned the hard way that if you staff her with a client once, you better staff her ongoing! One client actually joked around with Doniesha and told her he'd come after her with a 2 by 4' if Frances couldn't return! Frances has also been a tremendous help this year to our office staff, coming in to help answer the phones or catch up on filing. Her calm and soothing presence definitely helps all who come in contact with Frances, and we are so grateful to have her on our team! For this and so much more, we have honored to present Frances with this award. Congratulations again to Frances, and thank you for everything you do!
We are very proud to announce Margaret P. as Home Instead CG of the Month for March 2018! Margaret started with Home Instead in August of 2017, and she has been working hard for her clients nonstop ever since! Margaret has been such an amazing help to the Staffing department - although she has several ongoing clients, Margaret has always been available to fill in for a sick co-worker as needed. Her clients are always so impressed with her high level of care, and especially the kindness she shows when she talks to them. "Margaret always makes sure my husband is clean and comfortable, and she can always put a smile on his face - I am so grateful for her!" For this and so much more, we are honored to present Margaret with this award. Congratulations again to Margaret P, and thank you for everything you do!
Congratulations go out to Rose F., our CAREGiver of the month for January 2018. Rose has become Staffing's go-to CAREGiver in Big Bear, and we don't know what we'd do without her! Rose has only been with us since July of 2017 but has already worked over 600 hours during her tenure here. She is always willing to drop what she is doing in order to accommodate our clients needs, and always does so with a smile on her face! Her positive attitude and sunny disposition never fails to light up the room, and her clients absolutely adore her. We do as well! We have more than one call from a family member praising Rose's skills, her upbeat attitude and her dedication to her clients. Rose is also a foster dog parent, and practically has an animal sanctuary in her backyard! When she isn't working, you will most likely find her at thome loving on her four legged friends. Congratulations again to Rose F., and thank you for everything you do!
