This is an entry to recognize a top caregiver in the industry, submitted by Kristie at Griswold Home Care in Connecticut. Please join us is recognizing a care job well done.
I had a client that has had the same live-in caregiver for 6 years. The family was comfortable with this caregiver and thought they had become like sisters. From communicating with the caregiver and the client I could tell that there was something off that did not sit well with me. I brought this to the attention of the clients family and suggested that we replace the clients caregiver because I had suspected that there was verbal abuse happening. Mavel accepted this case with hardly any notice. Mavel arrived and was overwhelmed with the client because she would not allow Mavel to touch her.
After just a few days of Mavel being there the client changed into a whole new person. The family was amazed and could not thank Mavel enough. The client says that Mavel is fantastic and that she makes her feel more comfortable than she ever has. The client was not able to walk but a few feet at a time and Mavel has drastically helped the client strengthen her legs to be able to walk more.
Mavel is kind hearted and really cares deeply about her clients. If anyone deserves a surprise it is her! I would love for her to be recognized for how amazing she truly is. She is one of the best caregivers that I have worked with and it would be amazing to be able to bring some joy into her life as she has done so for so many.
