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.

Denise Brown

Denise has been with RetireEase for over 3 years. Throughout her entire tenure with us, she has consistently performed her duties with excellence and has exemplified the heart of RetireEase and the ideal caregiver with every client she has served. She is often requested by name and shows a passion for her work. I could give many stories that make us proud of her, but I’ll share the latest, which just came to my attention yesterday.

Denise was assigned to an overnight shift with a new Hospice client. It was our third night in the account and Denise’s first night. It was obvious to the family that this would be their mom’s final night on this side of eternity so they made the call to Hospice and just waited. Although there was nothing but silence in the room, it seemed loud with anticipation, fear and sadness. Then out of what seemed to be nowhere, a sweet voice broke the silence with a beautiful a capella version of Amazing Grace. It was Denise.

The family describes an incredible peace that rested over the room as she sang, which remained as the family stayed by their mom’s side to ease her into eternity.

Amazement filled their hearts as this complete stranger sang with such conviction. They conveyed to us that they could tell she was singing from a genuine heart of love, concern and compassion. Although they have a caregiver with their dad from a competitor, they immediately saw the difference. Denise was a “true caregiver.”

Their mother did pass away that night. Denise stayed by their side until all things were settled. Afterward, they called us to let us know that it would be their honor and privilege to have Denise attend her funeral and sing Amazing Grace for their mother, one more time.

That funeral is today, and she didn’t hesitate to put all things aside to fulfill their wishes. Denise is amazing and she makes us all proud of what we do, every day. She is a one-of-a-kind caregiver.
