Beyond A Care Job – Featuring Tuttie (Associated Home Care of NJ)

This is an entry to recognize a top caregiver in the industry, submitted by Barbara at Associated Home Care of NJ. Please join us is recognizing a care job well done.

I would like to recognize Tuttie as an outstanding caregiver of our organization. Tuttie came to us as a Companion then several years later became a Certified Home Health Aide. She has been with the same family and she has cared for 3 members of the same family father at age 92, then wife at age 80 and now their daughter 53.

Tuttie is always there for this family. She takes her job very seriously and cares selflessly for the family. She is always thinking of the next day or the next shift to ensure that the family is covered. She anticipates any event the family may have to ensure a smooth transition,

If I had 3 or 4 of Tuttie, I’d be a happy go lucky person. She is a GEM. She doesn’t do this job for the money but does it because of warm heart and compassionate soul. She does onto others, without expecting anything in return.

In the 8 years that Tuttie has been with us she called out once, which was last week—she went for a Covid Test and thankfully she was negative. As soon as she got her result, she called us to let us know she was ready to return to duty. Thank you Tuttie for your service!
