This is an entry to recognize a top caregiver in the industry, submitted by Stephanie at Senior Helpers in Pennsylvania. Please join us is recognizing a care job well done.
Teca was hired in March at the peak of the pandemic to join our Senior Helpers team. Little did she know what she was getting herself into. In the middle of the night, Teca received a call from us, in a panic, asking her to fill in at a clients home for a live-in case. No questions asked she up and got in her car to arrive at this patient’s home. She had no idea she would be stepping back in time as she was being placed on a client with middle stages of dementia. She has now been with this client almost 7 months and has handled the police being called in the middle of the night, the client wandering at any and all hours of the day/night, and most importantly the safety she has placed on this client during the months of this pandemic. She has taken a rough situation and has made it home, like family. She truly looks after her client as if it were her own family. Those are the characteristics we want to see in our caregivers – to be treating each patient / client as if they were their own family. Teca is a great example of going above and beyond for her client and for that we are extremely grateful!
