Standing Ovation Care Pro Recognition

A standing ovation is considered the highest form of praise and recognition, taking the celebratory aspect of applause to the next level. Each month, we celebrate Care Professionals who have gone above and beyond in their roles and lift them up with a Standing Ovation. We thank these incredible Care Pros for their dedication and service.

Vicki always has her client's best interest in mind.  She wants to make sure she is helping and caring in ways that are important to the specific client she is caring for at the time.  Do they want it done this way or that way? How can I help this client remember and connect with interests they used to have and what is important to them? Those types of thoughts are constantly running through Vicki's mind and that is why we are so glad Vicki is part of our caring team of CAREGivers.
