Caregivers of the Quarter
Caregivers of the Quarter
Every three months, the care supervisors and office staff at Home Helpers of Hinsdale choose a caregiver deserving of the honor of Caregiver of the Quarter. These men and women are recognized for their commitment to providing compassionate, professional care, and for living up to the standards that Home Helpers is known for.
4th Quarter 2022 - Henrietta N
We are excited to announce that Henrietta N is our Caregiver of the quarter! She recently celebrated her 10th anniversary with Home Helpers where she was given a gift and flowers.
Henrietta likes helping people and giving them the care they deserve and the care she would want if she was in their shoes. She likes to make them happy which in turn makes her happy too.
If she could give any tips to a new Caregiver it would be to really listen to the client as they know their body best. Every client is unique and has different needs and solutions.
We loved hearing the positive comments Henrietta shared about the office staff being like a family. She appreciates that everyone is a team player and really listens.
Outside of work, she most enjoys just spending time with her family eating and talking. She likes to cook and one of her favorites is to make rice and chicken gizzards.
Please join us in congratulating Henrietta
3rd Quarter 2022 - Linda F.
Join us in congratulating Linda F. who is our Caregiver of the quarter. Linda has been with Home Helpers for 8 years and we are so proud of her. After caring for her mom, she discovered this was her passion and left her job as a systems analyst to join our team as a Caregiver.
Linda enjoys helping clients be as independent as possible. Independence helps with their self confidence and self esteem so she encourages and motivates them to be their best. It is important, she feels, to build a relationship with the client. There is no magic wand; one just needs to work to gain trust. It's important to be honest with them and to be your genuine self. A little humor always helps break any tension too!
Outside of caregiving, Linda is busy and involved in many fixer-upper projects on her home. She is somewhat handy but is always learning how to be better.
She prefers reading and does not watch TV.
Thank you Linda and congratulations.
2ND Quarter 2022 - Reggie T.
Reggie Tindimubona has been with Home Helpers for 10 years and we are proud to share that he is our Caregiver of the Quarter.
Reggie enjoys looking after people; especially the elderly. He took care of older family members growing up so it is just part of him.
Although some may say caregiving can be stressful, Reggie has ways to be calm. He actually practices breathing techniques (see above article) and says just closing your eyes for minute helps resets your mind. Going on walks or simply taking some sips of water help. He says the key to caregiving is patience. Caregivers need to focus on the tasks.
Reggie loves to garden. In fact he has 10 tomato plants - some of them are included in his photo.
Please join us in our congratulations to Reggie.
1st Quarter 2022 - Maha A.
Maha A. was thrilled to receive the news that she was selected as our Caregiver of the Quarter. We are thrilled to have her working for Home Helpers.
Maha has worked as a Caregiver for a long time and we are pleased she joined us about 2 years ago. She loves working with the elderly and really likes to help them. She says she thinks about her clients all the time and even checks in on them on her days off just to say hello. Many times she cooks for them and will bring them something special if they like the dish.
Outside of work, she is very active and a leader in various community groups. She enjoys walking and spending time with her family; especially going to the gym with her daughters.
Please join us in congratulating Maha.
4th Quarter 2021 - Jithin “JP” P.
Congratulations to Jithin “JP” P. for being recognized as our Caregiver of the quarter. JP joined our Home Helpers team in 2017 and really enjoys working with seniors.
JP says safety is an important part of his job. Some clients are fragile and one must be careful so they stay safe.
Playing cards and doing puzzles with the clients is an activity he likes.
Outside of work JP likes going on walks (and yes he will have to wear an extra layer with the cold weather approaching!). He likes watching movies - Home Alone as is his favorite holiday movie.
Thank you JP and congratulations!
3rd Quarter 2021 - Kathy M.
Congratulations to Kathy M. who is our Caregiver of the quarter. Kathy has been with Home Helpers for 11 years after retiring from working downtown in the stock market for 40 years.
She has found that she really enjoys the night shifts. She is proud to help clients stay in their home and remain independent for as long as they can. Kathy's tip to other Caregivers is to not take anything personally. The client's can get frustrated that they can no longer do certain things and she suggests just going with the flow.
A perfect day to Kathy would be relaxing by the pool and reading a good book. Kathy reads several books a week and really enjoys mysteries.
Join us in congratulating Kathy on this recognition.
2nd Quarter 2021- Alicja R.
Join us to congratulate Alicja R. who is our Caregiver of the Quarter.
We and our clients are grateful to have had Alicja be part of our team for the past 10 years. She is very careful about the safety and health of our clients which we appreciate.
Alicja enjoys the variety of clients she has though it means she must be flexible. Each client is an individual and their expectations and interests require a different unique approach. She loves when her clients are pleased with her work.
She loves watching movies and is excited to return to seeing movies at the theatre She is an avid reader as she used to be a language teacher.
Thank you Alicja and congratulations.
