December's Caregiver of the Month is...Emelva M.! Congratulations! Emelva was chosen as Caregiver of the Month for her dependability and attendance, great communication with the office, and client feedback.
One of Emelva's client's daughters had this to say, "Emelva demonstrated a level of care and compassion that not only gave my mother comfort but also allowed her family to feel confident she was getting what she needed. My mother was very pleased with her care and looked forward to her coming. She made excellent breakfasts--which was the highlight of my mother's day and did a spectacular job in keeping the house clean. Emelva has a very special gift. She is kind, compassionate, and has a softness about her that is very calming and serene...a quality that is essential for caring for an elderly person. My mother developed a very special bond with Emelva which gave her a tremendous amount of comfort as she was nearing the end of her life. Our family is so grateful that you sent us Emelva."
Thank you for making Right at Home so proud, Emelva. You will be receiving your Caregiver of the Month bonus on your next check!
