The Melrose office of Home Instead Senior Care recently announced the selection of Emma Adu as Caregiver of the Year.

Emma moved to Melrose from Ghana 23 years ago and has dedicated her life to helping older adults age gracefully in place, as well as caring for her family. In addition, Emma has opened her own beauty supply store to supplement her income and is working 60 hours or more per week.

Emma has overcome some personal issues, but enjoys her life here with her husband Alex, and her three grown children in Ghana.

“We are thrilled to present this award to Emma,” said Bill Mishkin, managing director at Home Instead, Melrose. “She does an amazing job in helping our seniors and improving their quality of life. Emma developed her skills in caring for older adults in Ghana, and has continued with our office here, says Mishkin. We are so proud of her and present her with this award as appreciation for her dedication each day.
