Each quarter since 2005, The Senior’s Choice has honored one of our members’ caregivers with our distinguished “Caregiver of the Season” award, recognizing their dedication, passion, compassion, and outstanding achievement. The remarkable individual listed below is the kind of person who will be caring for your loved one when you hire a member of The Senior’s Choice to provide in-home care.
Colleen has been an outstanding caregiver since she started with Comforts of Home Care in January of 2009. She promptly completed her CCA course by February of 2009. She then started as a regular caregiver for one of our clients and remained with her, and even became the Team Leader in charge of her care, until she passed away at the beginning of this month at 91 years of age.
Colleen contributed greatly to the client’s well-being. While with that client, she read her letters from an old friend and helped her to write letters back. Any time she had any concerns with the client she called the office to let us know, and asked advice on how to deal with situations that arose. She added value to her client by taking her to her flower arranging class and assisted other residents, and sometimes even the instructor, with the arrangements as well. She made it a point to assist her client to look her best, and treated her with dignity and respect.
Colleen always has a positive attitude and outlook and is super caring. Her work ethic is flawless, with almost three years of working with us she has rarely taken a sick day.
As office staff, we are very grateful to have Colleen as one of our caregivers and very proud to call her one of our co-workers! She is most deserving of the title “Caregiver of the Season”!
