Recognizing Outstanding Caregivers
Right at Home would like to congratulate Christine Cady for being named 2019 Fall Caregiver of the Quarter. Christine has been happily married for 26 years to a career Navy man. She is originally from San Antonio, yet she has spent most of her time since being married overseas. She is mom to two adult children and 3 rescue pets (2 dogs and 1 cat). Working at Right at Home has taught Christine many new things. When asked what she has learned, Christine replied, “I have learned a lot working for Right at Home. Most importantly, I have learned how important it is for people to care for our elderly population. The elderly population need good people who truly care about them to work with.” She likes to listen to their stories and to encourage them to continue to enjoy life.
With this insight, when asked what she would like to do in the future, Christine replied, “I plan to go to school and get my CNA to improve my knowledge on how the elderly need specific care for their respective conditions.” Thank you, Christine, for all the you do!
Right at Home is proud to announce that Monica Stehle was selected as the 2019 Summer Caregiver of the Quarter. Monica is a loving daughter and sister who enjoys spending time with her family and their two cats. When she isn’t working, you can find her playing video games and studying. Monica says, “What I enjoy most about caregiving is that it gives me this feeling of purpose and motivation that I’ve never found with another job. I really feel like what I’m doing matters.”
Working with Right at Home has given her the opportunity to learn new lessons. When asked what she has learned, Monica replied, “I think the number one thing I’ve learned is to see things from my client’s perspective. From that point of view, it’s much easier to remain patient and positive, and to be able to figure out what the client may need even if they aren’t able to fully express it themselves.”
In the future, Monica hopes to become an Occupational Therapy Assistant. She attributes some of that desire to working with Right at Home. She stated, “Right at Home has been great about working with me so that I can continue to work while I go to school, and my experience working at Right at Home San Antonio has been a big factor in my career choice.” Congratulations again, Monica. We wish you continued success in all that you do!
Maria is a compassionate and caring which is shown in her care she provides are clients. Recently we have a difficult case where the client wanted short two hour shifts multiple times a day. Maria gave up her Saturdays and Sundays to provide care multiple times a day. The family loved her and enjoyed her care and smile. Maria proves her best to Right at Home daily. We appreciate all she does for our clients and this is why she is the Caregiver of the Quarter.
Idella Sherriffee | National Caregiver of the Year Nominee
Idella has been a Right at Home employee for 11 years. She provides such a calming effect on each of the clients lives she touches. She NEVER misses a shift and NEVER calls off. She is reliable and dependable despite NOT having a car. Our Alzheimer’s patients benefit so much from Idella’s strategies and thoughtful ways.
Idella provides care that is above an beyond and performs task above what she is asked. She has great initiative as well and does things before clients even have to ask. For these reasons and so many more we nominated Idella for Right at Home’s prestigious Caregiver of the Year for 2019.
