This is an entry to recognize a top caregiver in the industry, submitted by Amanda at Home Care Assistance in Texas. Please join us is recognizing a care job well done.
Laverne is a two-time cancer survivor. In 2017, while she was working with a Client she had a recurrence. Although Laverne’s chemo treatments were difficult and left her feeling tired, she continued to work 12 hour shifts with Mrs. H because her client specifically requested Laverne’s assistance. Laverne is a fighter. While she continues to take medication for her cancer, nothing will keep her from being present for and dedicated to her clients.
Laverne has been joyously received in every household she has graced. Her current client’s family had this to say about her: Laverne is very polite, very courteous, easy to communicate, and a FABULOUS cook! Our mom has been very pleased with her care. This family is so in love with Laverne, they will accept no other caregiver for a substitute.
As an agency dedicated to providing care and dignity to the aging population, we understand the importance of recognizing caregivers who give from the heart, who really excel at their work, not for the pay or the praise, but for the satisfaction of giving. Laverne is the epitome of that vision. Her nomination is not based only on hard work, dedication, and impeccable caregiving talent, but primarily on the obvious and ever-present joy that she exudes when giving her time and skill to those who need her.
