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.
Mix one part Energizer Bunny, one part Tin Woodman’s heart, toss in party planner extraordinaire, whirl it around and around and what you’ll get is our caregiver of the season, Kerry Cazzorla. Kerry wears her heart on her sleeve and understands intuitively the needs of her clients.
With Kerry, clients and family are one and the same. This past Christmas she invited her family to join her and several of her clients on a trip to the Assiniboine Park Conservatory. When there is a puzzle to solve, even Kerry’s family gets involved! Anything from figuring out how a digital photo frame works to programming a cordless phone.
Just recently Kerry put on her party planning hat to arrange a birthday celebration for a client. After numerous phone calls she finally had everything arranged . . . the limousine (Handi-Transit) and reservations at Club Regent for dinner. This same client misplaced his glasses on a recent trip to the hospital, and Kerry hustled about to do her best to locate them. One of the client’s family members (who does not live in Winnipeg) said she feels so peaceful knowing Kerry is here to be her eyes and ears.
Another one of Kerry’s clients, who is a mere 97 years old, gained the confidence to renovate her house—since she knows Kerry will be there for her. Kerry took the initiative to find her a contractor, and since then they have taken numerous trips to the hardware store to pick out products. Kerry is never content to just do her job—she always goes the extra mile.
Kerry, you are a gem and always a pleasure to work with!
