2022 Mid-Atlantic Region Caregiver of the Year
Congratulations to Sarah Williams for her recognition of delivering extraordinary care to clients and their families.
Sarah was selected as the Mid-Atlantic Region Caregiver of the Year among thousands of other caregivers from Virginia, West Virginia, Washington, D.C., Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania for her exemplary commitment to making a difference in the lives of her clients and team members.
“Sarah is a star caregiver who naturally personifies our core values of individualism, enthusiasm and collaboration,” said Phill Turner, Right at Home office owner. “Shortly after Sarah joined our team, she started providing care to a client with mental disabilities. Her immediate ability to understand our client’s needs helped him feel comfortable with our care. She even collaborated with our client’s sister to ensure he was taking his medications, eating well and socializing with his peers.”
Nadai Alwan, Right at Home’s Employee Recruiting Coordinator, meets with potential caregivers every day, but Sarah stood out right away.
“When I first met her, I loved her fun nature, her loud laughter and her smile,” said Alwan. “And now six years later, she’s never lost her smile. Sarah’s enthusiasm, love of life and individualism mesh so well with our clients. She is so empathetic, compassionate and attentive to our clients’ well-being.”
Sarah’s co-workers aren’t the only ones boasting her praises. According to Right at Home Client Care Coordinator, Ameena Barnett, “We have clients who ask if Sarah is stopping by tomorrow. They tell me Sarah really cares for them and provides them with peace of mind because of how well she takes care of their loved ones.”
Sarah has been with Right at Home for six years, working as a caregiver in Fairfax, Virginia, for office owner Phill Turner. Her compassion, selflessness and willingness to go above and beyond have made her a valued member of Right at Home and a beloved caregiver for seniors in her community.
