Caregiver of the Month - Linda R.
I didn't know when we hired Linda that I knew her former employer. The name was familiar, but fairly common. I called for a reference check and, lo and behold, it was my friend! He had nothing but glowing remarks about Linda. Linda had worked as a server for his and his wife's restaurant for years and was competent, kind, friendly and professional. He and his wife were very sad to lose her, but they understood she needed to share her special heart in other ways.
Linda's dad was getting older. He lived on his own, out of state, and didn't want to leave his home. All she wished for him was a kind person with a smile on their face, a gentle heart to help him start his day and be good company for him... That's when Linda realized she wanted to be that person! Linda had also worked at an assisted living community and knew that providing personal care and companionship was her true path.
So her goal, every day, is "to help someone's day be better, a little brighter!" She absolutely loves her job and it shows. The lives of the ladies and gentlemen she serves are definitely enriched by her TLC... and the lives of us here in the office are blessed to have such a wonderful, uplifting person on our team!
Caregiver of the Month - Brenda M.
Brenda Marcus is our Employee of the Month! She has been with Right at Home since 2017 and has been an exemplary employee! She communicates openly, regularly and well with office staff, and clients love having her help them!
Brenda began caregiving 30 years ago when her husband became ill. While caring for him, she also started caring for her then-86 year old neighbor. Brenda has been a purchasing manager for a large printing company as well as an office manager for a pool cleaning company. But she found that she had a desire to assist others. We believe you can teach the skills but you can't teach the heart. Brenda has both!
One of Brenda's fondest memories is helping a 92 year old Veteran. He would tell her about his times in Italy during WWII when he marched through the country. He would tell stories as if they just happened yesterday. Brenda learned so much from him and other ladies and gentlemen just by being patient, understanding, and listening to them.
Brenda's genuine care and kindness shows when she assists others. We are so happy to have her on Team RAH!
Caregiver of the Month - Terrie N.
I would like to introduce you to Terrie Nino, our amazing caregiver of the Month! Terrie has been with us for over 4 years and has worked with so many of our clients. She is beloved by the staff and clients alike. Terrie has been caregiving since she was 19 years old. She realized that caregiving was her calling when she was taking care of her grandparents at a young age. She has worked in assisted living facilities and hospitals, but truly loves more than anything working with people one on one. She says she views her clients as friends and family and looks forward to helping them each and every day to make their lives just a little easier. Her favorite part of the job is listening and hearing all the amazing stories that our clients have to offer. Terrie said "I have found my purpose in life which is to help and love on our senior population". Thank you Terrie for all you do and for being such a huge asset to our team!
