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.

Marilyn Crosbie

Marilyn’s first client, in 2002, was on state assistance and had a limit of eight hours per week. Marilyn helped her for the eight hours and put in several more without even telling us. She would call her during her off-time and took her to hospitals and doctors when needed. Marilyn continued to do the same for each and every client she’s had since then.

Throughout these years, she never committed to anything she couldn’t do and said NO to assignments rarely. She stepped in many times to substitute for other sick or absent caregivers, even when the assignments were distant from her house. She never missed a visit without informing the office, and the missed visits were few and far between.

With each and every client, she consistently reported issues that she saw with the clients: declining health, financial issues, medication problems, environmental or safety issues, etc. She watches out for her clients just as if they were family.

Just a couple of months ago, when I was out of town at the TSC Annual Convention, one of Marilyn’s clients got sick and went to the hospital for a couple of days. Having early dementia, this woman was very disoriented and frightened in the hospital. Marilyn went to visit her in the hospital and a couple of days later, when she was sent home, Marilyn stayed with her a few overnights and a few long days to make sure she was back to normal. The situation was repeated again a few weeks ago and again, Marilyn stayed with her to get her re-oriented in her home.

In addition, Marilyn has gotten us leads for clients in need of our services and has helped us in our marketing efforts.

Marilyn is a true gem (there are many more good deeds she’s done, too many to list here), and I’d like to recognize her for all that she’s done, so well and so consistently for three years now…
