In 3 years I hope to still be working in a capacity where I am able to contribute positively to the lives of others everyday.

How do you like to be recognized for a job well done?

Patty CGoQ Q3 2020

When you have free time, what do you like to do? 
I love to write poetry and am a participant with a writing group at Ventress Library in Marshfield. I am also re-learning to play the guitar. Spending time with my close friends and family, whether in person or on the phone, is very special to me. Although it is November, I can't wait to get back to swimming in the ocean!

Where do you see yourself in 3 years?
I hope to be working with Home Instead. I have developed an interest in how we as a society promote a healthy and meaningful life for people as they age, and I would be pleased if I could do some writing on this topic.

How do you like to be recognized for a job well done?

Maureen W. - Q3 2020 CAREGiver of the Quarter

Maureen CGoQ Q3 2020

When you have free time, what do you like to do? 
I love to read, mostly mysteries and historical fiction or history and science for general readers. I also write short mystery stories and verse. I take Tai Chi lessons and enjoy group hikes (when allowed again). Honestly, most of my free time is spent at home with my husband and two of our three grown sons.

Where do you see yourself in 3 years?
In three years I hope my husband will be able to retire and we will travel to places in the USA we've always wanted to see. I also hope to be writing and publishing more fiction. I see myself still working steadily for Home Instead, taking advantage of the flexibility to block out time for my writing and for our travel.

How do you like to be recognized for a job well done? 
There's a quote from Mark Twain that I love: "The two most important days in life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." I think our "why" is "to make a positive difference every day." The best recognition comes from the people I've helped, whether it's a simple "thank you" on a regular day or seeing and hearing how a suggestion or action of mine has made life easier or better for someone. It's also gratifying to have my efforts noticed by the people in my home and work communities. It gives me more confidence that I am on the right path. Of course, special gestures of appreciation, from cupcakes to bonuses, are always welcome!
