Monique P. - CAREGiver of the 2nd Quarter 2020
Congratulations to Monique on her accomplishment as CAREGiver of 2nd Quarter 2020! She understands what it means to be a valuable team member and has stepped into her role like a true professional. Monique is compassionate, caring, respectful and always loves to learn. She is proactive and always looking for ways to engage and provide care to her clients. Due to her loving nature, Monique receives compliments and praises for the care she has provided from both clients and family members. Monique continues to not only care for her own children and mother but has been a LOVING CARGIVER to our clients. She has worked tirelessly and graciously accepted shifts and been available to be on-call to care for any client. She is always willing to assist a fellow caregiver and staff to make sure we as a team deliver the best care to our clients!
Most recently, one daughter described her mother as stubborn and not willing to engage or accept help. Monique was assigned and in less than two weeks the daughter informed that Monique had transformed the environment the client lived in and the daughter noticed that her mother more physically and mentally engaged.
Another client wrote: “The day Monique came into my life is the day my life changed for the better. Imagining my life with a caregiver depressed me and when I finally made the decision to ask for help, I was very anxious and truly miserable. From the very moment we met I knew life was not only going to improve, it was going to be fun! Monique’s bright friendly smile and easy-going demeanor totally put me at ease. She jumped right in and immediately started predicting what I needed and taking care of things before I even realized I needed them done. Monique eradicated my feelings of guilt about asking or expecting someone to do things for me while I sat idle. I realized after our first day together that Monique and I had already formed a bond. I was looking forward to seeing her instead of dreading a caregiver in my life as I thought I would. Monique opened-up my world. I had been stuck at home for months, depending on others to drive me. Monique was happy to take me places and always had a way of putting my needs first above all else. Something no one has ever done for me, besides my devoted husband. Thanks to Monique my husband came home to a happy fulfilled wife rather than an exhausted, sick, and frustrated cancer patient. Monique always showed how much she cared. I was sad when COVID hit, my husband started working from home, and having Monique was not an option. I felt like I lost my independence all over again. Thankfully, I did not lose a friend.”
Monique’s unique, extraordinary caregiving skills, and direction has made a positive change in the way she provides services for our clients. Her years of caregiving and her positive outlook has allowed her to serve her clients with passion and a servant’s heart. Her hard work, dependability, and flexibility in taking work outside of her availability never goes unnoticed and will remain an asset to the office staff. Congratulations Monique on a job well done. We are proud to have you as part of the team! Thank you, for brining joy and happiness to our clients and giving our families a piece of mind. On behalf of the staff at Home Instead Senor Care®, it is with these qualities that you are worthy of this special recognition!
