Beyond A Care Job – Featuring Princess (AmeriCare Fort Worth)

This is an entry to recognize a top caregiver in the industry, submitted by Clayton at AmeriCare Fort Worth in Texas. Please join us is recognizing a care job well done!

Princess provides medication reminders for Barbara who lives in an independent living facility, and has dementia. This is the only service Barbara requires. Barbara left the facility for dinner and was not home for her usual medication reminder. Princess sensed this was out of the ordinary and alerted the facility management and agency which led to several phone calls with no answer. It is very important that Barbara take her medication, and Princess was very worried about her. Princess stayed considerably over her shift time to wait until Barbara came home to make sure she got the medication she needed, and got to her room safely. Princess could have easily went home after her time, as the principle caregiver said was fine, but she cared too much for her to walk away without making sure she was ok. For that above and beyond the call of duty, Princess deserves special recognition!
