We are very proud to announce that our May 2022 Exceptional Caregiver of the Month is Michelle. She joined our senior care team in February 2020, and this is her second time receiving the award.
She was also a finalist for the 2021 National Home Helpers Exceptional Caregiver of the Year award. She traveled with others from our agency to celebrate this achievement earlier this month (May 2022) at the 2022 Home Helpers National Conference in Scottsdale, AZ. Her favorite part of the trip was hanging out with her colleagues and award winners from our agency.
Michelle has received countless compliments since joining our agency. An easy way to sum up the compliments is by using the words from a recent client: "We really love Michelle." Many have praised her for her consistency because she never misses work. She also has demonstrated her ability to work with clients that have moderate to severe dementia. We are thankful that she recently picked up a position as a Care Concierge at our agency where she provides services to multiple clients at Water's Edge of Bradenton each day.
When we interviewed Michelle about the award and asked why she enjoys being a caregiver, she said "It's not a job to me. I never say 'Oh, I have to go to work.' I just love to make people smile."
"Michelle – As always, thank you for your hard work and dedication. With picking up the new position as a Care Concierge, you will have the ability to touch even more lives in our community. Keep up the great work!" - Jonathan and the Home Helpers Admin Staff
