Cedarburg CAREGiver of the Month

October 2018 | Mary H.

October 2018 | Mary H.

What sets her apart: Caregiving comes naturally to Mary. Prior to coming to Home Instead, she had recently closed her daycare. She joined our team because she wanted to continue caregiving. When asked ‘why,’ she responded, “Because the bonding is so enjoyable.” Mary has bonded so well, in fact, that a client’s family invited her to accompany all of them to dinner because she is “part of the family”; another client said, “I have four daughters, she’s my fifth.”

What Love (v.) means to her: Listening to clients and giving them her undivided attention.

Attribute(s) of Love (v.) she demonstrates: To Mary, selflessness is key to caregiving. “You’re doing it because it’s important. You have to leave your personal life and struggles outside and just focus on your client when you are with them.”

Mary at home: In her spare time, Mary can be found refinishing her kitchen cabinets, gardening, painting or crafting.

September 2018 | Carrie B.

What makes her a great CAREGiver: Carrie has been with Home Instead for eight years. During that time, Carrie’s clients have consistently commented that she is always respectful and approaches every situation with a sincere and caring attitude. She is always thinking of how she would want someone to care for her own parents.

What sets her apart: Carrie has always enjoyed helping others, and she finds her time with clients to be rewarding. In fact, she takes a heartfelt interest in the lives of every client she serves, and her clients quickly grow attached to her. For example, Carrie has a 99-year-old client — soon to turn 100! — and they appreciate each other so much. They have demonstrated a genuine mutual bond.

August 2018 | Joanie G.
What Love (v.) means to her: Caring for others the way you would want to be cared for.

Attribute(s) of Love (v.) she demonstrates: Patience is paramount in Joanie’s life. It’s a consistent theme heard when clients call the office to compliment her care. Joanie’s calm demeanor radiates with all her clients, who quickly grow attached to her. In fact, Joanie’s most memorable experiences at Home Instead involve spending time with a particular client. They go everywhere together and enjoy one another’s company immensely; Joanie said that they could talk for hours!

Personal life: In her free time, Joanie reads, goes to movies and makes jewelry.

July 2018 | Susan A.

July 2018 | Susan A.

On July 21, Susan will celebrate her two-year anniversary as a Home Instead CAREGiver. Over the past couple years, Susan has demonstrated Love (v.) in the lives of our seniors. Sue loves taking care of people and treats them as if they were her own mother or father. In fact, patience is the attribute that she believes is most helpful when caring for a client.

In her spare time, Susan is a watercolor artist and enjoys traveling with her husband of 44 years. Together, they have one son and two grandchildren.

We’re blessed to have you on our team, Susan!
