Barbara has been with our Home Helpers team since March 2019 and has been a caregiver for 10 years. This is her second time receiving the Home Helpers of Bradenton’s Exceptional Caregiver of the Month award, showing both her passion and her commitment to our clients. “When the family of one of our clients met Barbara, they seemed to know right away that she was the perfect fit and asked for more of her time! It always seems to happen that way with her!”, said Jonathan, owner of Home Helpers of Bradenton.
When asked about what she has learned and her experience since the COVID-19 pandemic started, she talked about how she valued the training provided at Home Helpers, the skills of which she and her family use at home as well. When at her clients, she wears her mask, disinfects surfaces frequently, and even wears a face shield when assisting with bathing. Her faith also helps her to stress less during the pandemic and she always says a prayer for the protection of her clients and her family.
“We are constantly impressed by your work ethic and cheery attitude, day-in and day-out. You are an inspiration to us all. Keep up the great work!”- Jonathan and the Home Helpers Admin Staff
