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.

Ruth Adams

Mountain Home Care is blessed with some of the most wonderful caregivers, and I wanted to share a recent experience, which seemed to be a perfect fit for “Caregiver of the Season.”

Ruth Adams came to us highly recommended by a terrific referral partner in Wealth Management. She’s worked with us very faithfully for a year now and has always been flexible, dependable and very loyal. Ruth is obviously one of our “go-to” folks, and we appreciate her so much.

For a few months, Ruth was having some difficulty with what turned out to be heart trouble. We’ve been very concerned about her condition and tried to stay on top of things. Several weeks ago, she had an Angioplasty procedure and we thought everything was fixed and going well; however, one day recently, Ruth called to say she was sick and planned to visit the doctor. She said she would keep me posted on her condition, and I promised to see to the coverage for her clients.

When I visited Ruth in the hospital after bypass surgery, I learned what really had transpired that “sick” day. Ruth was having chest pains and shortness of breath. She knew she needed to get to her doctor but first stopped to do a few errands for her client. She made her deliveries and proceeded to the hospital to meet up with her Cardiologist. At the hospital, they immediately put her in an ambulance and transported her to the nearest Regional Medical Facility because Ruth was on the verge of a heart attack. She underwent bypass surgery, and I’m glad to report that Ruth is home now and doing well.

While I do not recommend that caregivers ignore their own health and well-being to service our clients, I was quite humbled at Ruth’s unselfish devotion to her clients. Those are characteristics of Ruth, which we have noted from her first day with Mountain Home Care. She is always willing to “go the extra mile.” Without question, Ruth is a fine example of an exemplary caregiver and employee, and it is my pleasure to recommend Ruth Adams as “Caregiver of the Season.”
