Nathalie Adra Agbeko, CAREGiver of the Month

We are pleased to announce Nathalie Adra Agbeko is our CAREGiver of the Month for August 2016

With Nathalie's first client, she showed her true talent in caring for senior's. The first client she had called the office right after her first shift and requested her for as many shifts as possible. Nathalie served this particular client until the very end. The daughter expressed how Nathalie cared for her mother as if she was her own. Nathalie spoke to her so kindly and compassionately. When her mother passed the daughter was sad to no longer be able to see Nathalie with the family.

Shortly after this time, Nathalie was assigned  to a new client and the family called the next day and explained how much they enjoyed having her and how she was productive the whole shift. Nathalie now serves this client five days a week. She has only served two clients since she was hired but the level of care, compassion, and love that she has given these two clients shows her dedication and passion to want to help senior's.
