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.

José Silva

When José came to us for an initial interview, he brought a large ring binder with him. When I asked what was in the binder, José said that it was his caregiving experience. The binder contained a complete photo history and documentation of his first “client,” his own wife, Martha. She had been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s years earlier. At that time, José left his job as an electrician and took on a variety of other jobs that gave him the flexibility he needed to spend more time taking care of this wife in their home. This adoring husband was born with a heart for caregiving.

During our interview, José, in his unassuming way, asked if he could buy our caregiver training materials just in case I felt that he would not make a good caregiver. I immediately knew that I was interviewing a very special person. Since that time, José has successfully completed our Certified Companion Aid program as well as our Certified Hospice Aid program, and he continues look for knowledge to improve his skills.

In his years with us, José has exhibited every good quality that we look for in our caregivers; compassionate caring, unmatched integrity, a strong work ethic, flexibility, and a positive attitude. José has always become very much a part of his clients’ families. He loves his work, his clients, and their families.

When he is not working for us, José continues to visit and look after his wife who now must receive her care in a facility. He remains dedicated to her care, spending time with her every day. José is the proud father of three sons and one grandson. He spends his free time reading about developments in medical research and neurology.

We are blessed to have José as a part of our family of caregivers, and we are proud to have him as a friend!
