This is an entry to recognize a top caregiver in the industry, submitted by Lorraine at Assisting Hands in Florida. Please join us is recognizing a care job well done.
We had a challenging new client that lives alone with no family or guardian. The police and fire department had been called multiple times due to the condition of her home and her inability to care for herself. It was not an ordinary first visit for Contena, as trash bags and laundry had accumulated, there was no edible food in the home, and the client had other immediate personal care needs.
Contena was calm, cheerful and methodical cleaning out the refrigerator, the clients living area, and getting client needed necessities. She was able to establish a positive relationship with the client and asked to be the clients main caregiver when most caregivers would have never gone back to the home. She made a difference in the clients life.
